Toshiba Printing Innovation Simplifies Packaging Applications while Conserving Resources in the Process

 LAKE FOREST, Calif., May 6, 2024 — Affirming its commitment to building innovative products to help organizations operate more ecologically, Toshiba America Business Solutions’ one-of-a-kind industrial printer secures the Gold Stevie® Award for sustainability.

Toshiba’s Duplex Linerless Thermal Printer simultaneously prints on both sides of a label without using a liner or backing material.  Such ingenuity eliminates the plastic pouch and additional packing slip while also eliminating any label liner waste, enabling organizations to function more sustainably.

The Stevie Awards are the United States’ premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.  More than 300 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The Stevie Award for sustainability recognizes organizations that are making great strides in this vital area,” says Stevie Awards president Maggie Miller. “Toshiba is a clear winner for its capability to help conserve resources within the vital areas of e-commerce and packaging.”

Boosting Sustainability & Production   

By printing on both sides of a single label, Toshiba’s Duplex Thermal Printer reduces up to 40 percent of labeling costs.  Toshiba’s innovative system meets this objective by reducing the consumables for three things: the paper backing that goes directly to the landfill, a secondary label or internal packing list and the plastic sleeve for attaching a packing list to a parcel.

“Our team is thankful to the Stevie Awards organization and its judges for presenting us with this honor,” states Toshiba America Business Solutions Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Business Development Bill Melo.  “With the sole duplex linerless thermal printer on the market, Toshiba is pleased to help organizations improve productivity and reduce total operating costs while operating more sustainably.”
