Gallus reports strength across Asia

Heidelberg has outlined the successes its customers across Asia have experienced following investments in conventional printing technology from Gallus.

This includes Fine Webtech Label Solution System in South Korea, which has installed its fourth Gallus EM 430 S this year. Fine Webtech produces products for the household, personal care, cosmetics and industry market segments. Its regular customers include brands like LG, Samsung and Amorepacific.

Sunghwan Jang, vice president at Fine Webtech, commented: ‘The Gallus machines have increased our productivity and flexibility, and enabled us to expand our range of substrates. ‘With the Gallus machines, we are competitive and can offer our customers the highest quality with the shortest delivery times.’

Indian company Sonic Labels in Mumbai has invested in a Gallus ECS 340. Founded seven years ago, the label printer serves the household, cosmetic, and industrial market segments.

Aditya Ojha, head of marketing and design at Sonic Labels, said: ‘We want to offer our customers high-quality labels at low prices, with delivery within 48 hours. The Gallus ECS 340 lets us do this.’

Heidelberg has noted that while the label market accounts for just five percent of the worldwide print volume of around €400 billion (US$455 billion), it has the biggest growth potential in the industry. Annual growth in self-adhesive labels is reported at over four percent, increasing to double digits for digital inkjet printing with Asia the fastest growing label market in the world with over 40 percent, followed by Europe with 25 percent and the USA with almost 20 percent. Customer successes with the Gallus Labelfire are reported here.
