Glenmore Custom Print + Packaging of Richmond, British Columbia, completed the installation of an Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system, developed by New Jersey-based Eagle Systems Inc. The Eagle Cold Foil System was installed in mid-June, and now operates with the company’s 8-colour Heidelberg XL 106, plus coater, UV press.
Around 40 percent of the company’s revenue is driven by the folding-carton sector, 50 percent from commercial sheetfed work and the remaining 10 percent from digital printing. The company focuses its attention on high-end print work.
“Every key position in our company is filled with an experienced, but young, and super energetic individual,” said General Manager James Rowley. “The average age of our management team is about 32, which is comparatively very young by industry standards. But it’s our youthful and fresh spirit that inspires us to always aggressively pursue new opportunities, embrace bigger and better, and connect with the newer generation of print buyers.”
Rowley continues to explain this business approach led to its partnering with Eagle Systems to produce unique applications. For more than 25 years, Eagle Systems has provided the printing industry with the design and manufacture of foil application and print enhancement equipment. Founded by Mike King, CEO, President and inventor of all Eagle products, the company has hundreds of installations around the world, including the Eco-Eagle Cold Foil and the Eco-Eagle Cast and Cure systems.
“We’ve spent the last month dialing the Eagle system in and learning its unique capabilities. So far the reaction from our clients has been positive,” said Rowley. “While cold foil will have an impact on our overall folding carton business, it’ll really help us cultivate our higher-end confectionery, beverage, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical packaging segments. In addition, Eagle also offers us a new product range to offer our POP signage clients.”
Founded by Glenn Rowley in 1981, Glenmore Custom Print + Packaging today is a family owned and operated company with 90 employees. It is noted as one of the most prominent independent custom print and folding carton manufacturers in Western Canada, providing conventional and UV offset printing, as well as toner and wide format inkjet production. Glenmore services the retail, manufacturing, and design communities.
