Komori strengthens position in Canada through successful relationship with Komcan
Komcan, Komori’s exclusive dealer in Canada, has detailed a number of installations in 2018 that have allowed the country’s printers to, ‘realize their business goals and take their print offerings to the next level’, according to Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Komori America.
Highlights from Komcan’s 2018 Komori sales include:
- Ellis Packaging of Pickering, Ontario, part of The Ellis Group and one of the largest independent Canadian packaging companies. It purchased its sixth Komori press last year, a 6-color Komori Lithrone GX40 with coater (GLX640C). The Ellis Group now has the largest number of GL presses in North America, with two presses in each of its three locations;
- Produlith Packaging, a full-service folding carton and flexible packaging company in Montreal, Quebec. It replaced two competitive presses with the purchase of a 6-color Komori Lithrone GX40 with coater (GLX640C) with H-UV ink curing system, along with Komori’s KP-Connect, a cloud-based technology for data-driven operations that offers real-time control of all printing processes;
- Whitehouse Graphics of Vaughan, Ontario, which installed a 6-color Komori Lithrone G40 with coater (GL640C) in its new facility in Woodbridge, replacing a competitive press; and
