United Kingdom-based printing and converting press manufacturer Edale has announced EdaleRus as its distributor in Russia. The announcement was quickly followed by the sale of a 9-color Beta modular flexo press with combination flexo/screen and hot foiling units to Laguna, a company based in Tver, Russia. Laguna is an offset printing company that decided to move into self-adhesive, flexographic printed labels. They will use the Beta press for the production of health care, cosmetic and liquor labels.
Andrey Semichev, director of EdaleRus, says: “We recently made a commissioning of the Edale Beta 330 flexo press at the Russian printing house Laguna in Tver. It was a joint installation -- Edale’s engineer’s alongside specialists from EdaleRus. The press has many options, such as delam/relam, Stork screen printing unit, diecutting, cold foiling and UV dryers. This is the first flexo press in this factory and we are delighted that Laguna chose the Edale Beta for their first taste in flexographic printing and I am positive they will not be disappointed.”
“This is our first Edale press as we diversify into the flexographic label market," says Alla Poltavtseva, director of Laguna. "We were very impressed with the FL-350 launch at Labelexpo Europe and really helped to secure in our mind that Edale was the right choice. Our decision to purchase the Beta then became an easy one after visiting an Edale customer in the UK, who also ran high specification labels on their Edale machines”.
