Ellis Group Buys Komori LS640
The Ellis Group purchased a Komori LS640 for its Guelph, Ontario-based facility, called Ellis Packaging West, which primarily focuses on printing for the food-processing sector.
The Ellis Group runs three facilities in Southern Ontario, including its main 85,000-square-foot facility in Pickering, which manufacturers printed folding cartons for the food, liquor, personal care, neutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries; the Ellis Paper Box plant in Mississauga, with extensive QA procedures to focus on the pharmaceutical industry; and the Guelph plant, which is an FSC-, SFI-, and ISO-certified operation.
With the addition of the Komori LS640, purchased through K-North Inc., The Ellis Group now operates three Komori presses in two of plants.
The new 6-colour purchased for Ellis Packaging West in Guelph is equipped with an anilox coater, SAPC Plate Changers, closed-looped colour control, Komorimatic Delta dampening, vacuum feed board and the Komori Management System.
The Ellis Group traces its origins back to 1946, while Ellis Packaging was incorporated in 1983.
