CTC International, West Caldwell, NJ, USA, and Emis Sp, of Warsaw, Poland, have formed a strategic partnership to promote the sales of CTC’s label automation products in Europe.
Emis will display CTC’s new VTR Value Turret Rewinder at Labelexpo Europe next week in Brussels. The turret rewinder will wind web nonstop from the Emis Flexor 380C+ slitter rewinder. “The combination of the turret with the slitter rewinder is a natural fit providing a total value package to the label manufacturer,” says Rich Herbert, CTC’s VP of sales.
Additionally, Emis will assume sales responsibility for CTC’s line of label automation products in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine, Belarus, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Bosnia, and Macedonia. It is expected that the turret rewinders will be offered in both right hand and left hand designs.
Further, the partners anticipate that Emis will begin to manufacture the CTC designed rewinders and splicers at its factory in Lodz, Poland, in the near future. The machines will be converted to metric design and will incorporate more locally sourced components to better serve the European market.
