Western Shield Label Company, a Southern California area label converter, recently acquired a 13” Mark Andy LP3000 10-color UV flexo press. With its quick-change architecture, short web path and tooling compatibility with the current presses in the company’s stable, the investment will help Western Shield maintain short lead times and a competitive cost structure, says CEO Frank Connelly.
“I am really excited about this investment," Connelly says. “The LP3000 provides us with some additional high quality capacity which will enable us to continue growing our business in a measured way while, at the same time, maintaining the quality and service that our customers have come to expect. We remain committed to continuously investing in superior equipment, employees, and materials.”
“In light of our growth and increased demands on production, this is a critical investment for the company," adds Tamar Santana, production manager. “It is important that our customers continue to get their labels on time or early. This press will allow us to do just that, while maintaining our stringent quality standards. In addition, the 13” width allows us to run multiple labels across the web, increasing efficiency and lowering costs to our customers.”
Western Shield Label Company, headquartered in Rancho Dominguez, CA, USA, has been providing custom printed labels and packaging for manufacturers, distributors, and brokers in Southern California and throughout North America since 1970.
