Labelgraphics buys second Gallus RCS 430 combo press

December 20, 2010

The company plans to acquire land and build a customized factory in the near future.

Labelgraphics, Glasgow, Scotland, has invested in a second Gallus RCS 430 combination press in response to production demands for more capacity and flexibility. The press will sit alongside the first, making Labelgraphics the only company in the UK with RCS 430 capacity.

“We have seen a dramatic increase in business since the first installation 18 months ago, and this second Gallus RCS 430 will increase capacity and also maintain our flexibility, which is important in today’s market,” says Alex Mulvenny, managing director. “Quality is also a crucial factor, and we consider Gallus to be leading the label printing market in this.”

The new press, which is capable of producing unsupported film and self adhesive labels, will combine six processes: offset, flexo, screen, embossing, and hot and cold foil stamping. It could also have gravure retrofitted if required.

This investment is part of Labelgraphics’ five year expansion plan, which has seen the company make £4 million capital investments over the first two years. “We intend to purchase land in the next three months and will then be building our own customized factory,” notes Mulvenny.
