Komori America today announced that Komcan Inc., Komori’s exclusive dealer in Canada, saw an “impressive year” of Komori press installations in 2018, with three out of four new press installations going to packaging printers.
“We work very closely with our colleagues at Komori America to provide Canadian printers the expertise they need to select the Komori press that will handle their printing challenges, as well as support their growth and profitability. The printers in our market trust Komori presses for their advanced technology and reliability,” Steve Ranson, President of Komcan, says.
Highlights from Komcan’s 2018 Komori sales include:
• Ellis Packaging Limited of Pickering, Ont., (part of The Ellis Group), an independent Canadian packaging companies, purchased its sixth Komori press, a six-colour Komori Lithrone GX40 with coater (GLX640C). The Ellis Group now has the largest number of GL presses in North America, with two presses in each of its three locations.
• Produlith Packaging, a full-service folding carton and flexible packaging company in Montreal, Que., replaced two competitive presses with the purchase of a six-colour Komori Lithrone GX40 with coater (GLX640C) with H-UV ink curing system, along with Komori’s KP-Connect, a Cloud-based technology for data-driven operations that offers real-time control of all printing processes.
• Whitehouse Graphics of Vaughan, Ont., installed a six-colour Komori Lithrone G40 with coater (GL640C) in its new facility in Woodbridge, replacing a competitive press. Reliability and increased efficiency played heavily into the decision to upgrade to the GL640C, as did the need to produce specialized packaging customers were requesting, the company explains.
• Komcan continued its success in the commercial marketplace with another Komori installation at Astley Gilbert, a full-service print and imaging solutions provider in Toronto, Ont., which has been a Komori operation for many years. The company works with agencies and high-end Fortune 500 clients that require high-quality printing, often in short runs and with stringent deadlines. This led Astley Gilbert to add an eight-colour Komori Lithrone G40P with coater (GL840PC) with Komori’s H-UV ink curing system.
