Gallus Group will integrate its folding carton business within an autonomous business unit. The deal also gives it useful access to BHS’s expertise in high quality diecutting technology. Cutting and creasing thin, preprinted carton board at speed, with integrated waste handling and conveying procedures, tends to divide the men from the boys. It is also possible to recognize a synergy with Heidelberg’s sheetfed range of offset carton presses, including postpress systems. As is widely known, the German press manufacturer holds a 30 percent stake in the Gallus Group. Therefore, by association, the BHS deal opens up several possibilities for all concerned in the webfed packaging world.
