Gallus hosts 'Wine Days' in Switzerland

March 13, 2014

The two-day event focused on finishing high-end wine labels.

Gallus hosted a two-day event at its St. Gallen, Switzerland location which focused on finishing high-end wine labels. During live demonstrations, participants were able to see the many different performance features of the Gallus TCS 250 label press in combination with inline flat bed hot foil embossing on a Pantec Rhino.

The wine label being printed in the live demonstration featured special haptic properties and a sophisticated design incorporating spot colors and gold embossing. The modular inline concept of the Gallus TCS 250 with its different printing methods (e.g. offset, flexographic and screen printing) and variety of finishing options combines perfectly with the Pantec Rhino to deliver optimum printing quality, the company says. 

Having watched the machine demonstrations, visitors had the opportunity to discuss the latest products, developments and possible products in label printing with experts from both Gallus and Pantec and their fellow label printers while enjoying some snacks and a glass of fine wine.

Christof Naier, vice president of sales and marketing at Gallus, said of the event: “The great interest and positive feedback of our participants, in particular from traditional wine-growing areas such as Italy and France, clearly demonstrates the importance of such an event. The 'Gallus Wine Days' offered the ideal occasion for cultivating existing customer contacts and obtaining new ones. Now more than ever, ensuring customer proximity and transferring the necessary know-how are key features of our company culture. With the 'Gallus Wine Days' we have created an ideal platform for this.”
