US label and packaging converter Macaran Printed Products has installed 17in 14-color Gallus Labelmaster combination press.
Nick VanAlstine, CEO of Macaran Printed Products, said: ‘Macaran is proud to call some of the top consumer brands in the world our customers, and we have always put their complete satisfaction at the top of our priority list. Our customers were demanding more, and we listened. With this significant investment in new equipment, we’re able to offer them a wider range of capabilities, while also improving quality and decreasing lead time.’
The new Gallus Labelmaster press is 17in wide with 14-color stations. It is suited to print a variety of labels using a combination of technologies including rotary screen, flexo, cold foil, lamination and two-sided printing.
Macaran’s vice president of Operations Nick Noyes worked closely with the team at Gallus to custom configure the new press to meet their very specific requirements.
Andre Blais, national account manager and Gallus account specialist, Heidelberg, added: ‘Given Macaran’s expertise in the narrow web beverage, spirits, beer, food and health and beauty markets, we are confident the Gallus Labelmaster press platform we have delivered will meet their needs, now and well into the future.’
The new Gallus Labelmaster press will be operational Q1 2022.
With this capital investment, Macaran will offer almost limitless options when it comes to brand building, creating shelf impact and optimized production and delivery.
