Catapult is bringing a ground-breaking under-one-roof solution to the market that combines a seamless end-to-end service, with unrivaled production capabilities. The company is specializing in three areas: self-adhesive, narrow web film and linerless labeling.
Founder and CEO Mark Cook was instrumental in the rapid growth of Equator, a packaging design agency that spans the US, U.K. and European markets. As Group Sales Director and a partner in the business he was instrumental in the company’s global expansion, ensuring Equator’s business model and proven processes were applied consistently across all sites and bringing in major food and retail brand customers in the U.S. and the U.K., including Sam’s Club, Save-Mart, SEG and Kraft.
After helping Equator toward a successful acquisition deal that saw the company become part of the SGK global marketing group in 2017, Mark decided to invest in his next challenge. The result is Catapult, a creatively inspired printing business that redefines a new print sector model for the U.S.
“We have a vision to create a unique, customer-focused business that will force change across the U.S. print industry. Our team is aligned with this vision and will go out of its way to understand and deliver on our clients’ needs. We understand the pace of the FMCG market, as well as its specific demands. It’s called ‘fast-moving’ fora reason, and so as a business, our service has to be equally agile and responsive to match the requirements of our customers," Cook said.
Leading edge technology sets Catapult even further apart from its competitors. The business has invested in a host of technologies including Esko’s XPS Crystal CDI, Hamillroad Software’s Bellissima Digitally Modulated Screening (DMS) as well as the most advanced photopolymer plate technology from MacDermid. Two of the latest FA Nilpeter presses, as well as patented GTT anilox from Apex are also housed in the 56,000 sq foot Florida site. The combination of these state-of-the-art technologies will ensure a transformative solution.
