Mark Andy’s sales rise in Australia

February 1, 2010

The company sees success in the region with all of its machine brands.

Mark Andy has seen a recent surge of machine orders in Australia. With support from its distributor, Aldus Engineering Pty. Ltd., the company has taken orders for Comco and Mark Andy printing presses and Rotoflex finishing systems.

Of the several Mark Andy equipment orders, the most notable are two Performance Series P7 presses, the newest technology introduced at Labelexpo Europe 2009 which focuses on fast changeovers, minimal waste and high print quality. Both P7 presses are eight color versions – one 17 inch (430mm), the other 10 inch (250mm) web width – and are equipped with GEW UV curing systems and Harper ceramic anilox rolls.

Ian Guanaria, general manager of Aldus, says, “These days changeover times and low waste is the name of the game. Runs are getting smaller so printers can’t afford to waste material or even ink. This product is well suited for any narrow web printer, whether they be flexible packaging, label or tag printers.”

An order for a Comco C1 press was also taken. The 22-inch (560 mm), eight color C1 is a water-based press with final UV, diecutter and lamination system. With significant capabilities in short runs, Comco equipment is ideal for the flexible packaging and folding carton markets. This will be the first press of its kind installed in Australia and will handle rigid packaging for an Australian converter.

The four Rotoflex machines sold into the region include multiple VSI machines, one of which is currently on display in the Aldus Demonstration Centre in Melbourne.

“The support of Aldus has played a significant role in our success in the region,” says Mike Russell, international sales manager for Mark Andy Inc. “Their contribution of superior customer support for all our brands is a key component to our successful installed base of more than 250 machines.”
