Howell Packaging, a division of F. M. Howell & Company, has recently been audited by Graphic Measures International (GMI) and has achieved Full Certification status.

This certification is confirmation that Howell’s printing capabilities, strict processes, and documented procedures are in place to ensure the highest level of packaging excellence.  The GMI audit, which also includes an on-press evaluation and print test was a very thorough full-day audit. The GMI auditor evaluated prepress, platemaking, printing, die-cutting, and finishing operations to assure compliance with the following:  process controls and documentation, equipment maintenance procedures and records, training, operator capability, and equipment performance.

Company President, Katherine H. Roehlke, emphasized the importance of this additional certification. “GMI is a rigorous certification process, and I am pleased and proud of our managers for achieving full certification status during GMI’s first visit to our folding carton plant. As a certified resource for brand owners, we are in a better position to earn business from retailers that source global packaging.”
