Contiweb today announced it has signed a sales agreement with imPRESSions Worldwide, a supplier of presses, enhancements and services to the newspaper, commercial and packaging market, to become its sales partner in Canada and Western U.S.
The agreement sees imPRESSsions Worldwide assume responsibility for the growing integration of Contiweb’s flagship Thallo hybrid web offset printer, along with the Contiweb CD unwinder and CR rewinders. Targeting the digital and converting market, the systems also provide workflow enhancements for Contiweb’s existing splicer and dryer customers.
Designed on a modular inline platform, Thallo is described as being fully compatible with all flexo and rotogravure systems, “providing customers with greater flexibility and seamless integration,” Contiweb says, with offset plates produced in-house.

“We are delighted to join forces with imPRESSions Worldwide. The company has an extensive understanding of our products and target audience, many of who are already existing clients of imPRESSions Worldwide. Using web offset, these companies no longer have any dilemmas when it comes to producing multiple SKUs or producing shorter runs and can ultimately increase their profit margins,” says Chuck Irons, VP for the Americas at Contiweb.
“With 25 years’ experience and well over 1,500 printing projects, imPRESSions Worldwide is recognized as the leading partner for hardware and auxiliary solutions. In fact, I was personally involved in the sale of the very first Thallo in the U.S.,” Dave Gilmore, VP Sales North America at imPRESSions Worldwide, says. “In our opinion, the Thallo is the crown jewel of offset. It combines low-cost, high quality consistency – the ideal solution for our customers.”
