Ellis Packaging of Pickering, Ont., has purchased a new Komori GLX 6-colour 41-inch press from Komcan Inc., the Canadian dealer for Komori presses.

The facility is part of The Ellis Group, with locations in Mississauga and Guelph, Ont. The Group will now have the largest number of GLX presses in Canada and a total of six Komori presses, Komcan explains.

The highly automated GLX is an 18,000 iph machine that sits beside another GLX 8c machine installed three years ago at Ellis Packaging.

“We are so excited to be adding another GLX to our facility and The Ellis Group. This machine will be a great compliment to our current equipment that will enable us to increase our throughput and capacity,” says Cathie Ellis, President of Ellis Packaging.

“The long ongoing relationship between Komcan, Komori and the Ellis Group has been a great run for both companies that benefit vendor and buyer,” adds Steve Ranson, President of Komcan Inc. in Georgetown, Ont.
