Spectrol adds new Gallus ECS 340

January 20, 2014

The Ontario-based converter specializes in high-end food and beverage, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food labels.

Spectrol, Inc., of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, recently took delivery of a new Gallus ECS 340 flexographic label printing press to augment its high-end food and beverage, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food labeling business.

"We started our business 25 years ago with a Gallus letterpress," says Spectrol President Ray Kapoor. "Since then, we've migrated much of our work to larger flexo presses. Because of our recent growth, we needed something faster and more efficient, so we looked at all the new flexo press offerings in the industry and chose the Gallus ECS 340. We already had great experience with Gallus quality and support, and we really liked the stability of the ECS 340's granite base. However, what really sold us was the press's extremely short web path and quick set-up. Head-to-head, no other press could match it."

Since its commissioning, Kapoor reports that "the press is running beautifully. I'm very pleased with its quality, its production capability, and its quietness, which is really an added bonus."
