Germany’s H.O.Persiehl has installed cold foil technology from Eagle Systems.
Based near Hamburg, Germany, H.O.Persiehl is a European specialist in commercial printing and packaging. Respected as a specialist in packaging and finishing on a global scale, H.O.Persiehl manufactures approximately 1.7 billion folding cartons and blanks, 2.5 billion labels and 30 million multipacks.
Hot foiling has been a core part of its production, as managing director Philipp Persiehl explained: ‘[We are] one of the leading printing companies in Europe for high-quality products, and as such we also have one of the largest and most sophisticated equipment on the continent. Until recently we were revered as the company with the highest application of hot foil enhancement [estimated at 80 million sheets a year]. Now we are quickly meshing our cold foil capabilities into our production portfolio and reaping the positive results.’
He continued: ‘The Eagle Cold Foil System has already proven to be easy to operate, and the company’s technical and customer support has quickly lived up to their reputation with rapid response, concise and accurate answers to technical questions. We were up and running in June, and we’re already presenting a new market face, while realizing very positive feedback from clients.
‘The Eagle Cold Foil System will offer us even more options on the production floor and enable us to field a wider array of domestic and international customer demands.’
