GREECE • The Greek label printer ETPA Packaging installed a Gallus ECS 340 at their production site in Komotini, North Eastern Greece. The new line consists of 9 flexo printing stations and 4 screen printing modules and is further equipped with a cold foil unit as well as the possibility of backside printing on glue, UV lamination for mono-foil material and PS lamination.

Since March 2017 – exactly a year has passed since the machine was installed – ETPA packaging is running jobs for labels, sleeves and sachets on the ECS 340. According to the company, George Ekonomou, sales director at ETPA Packaging, decided to invest in this Gallus line because of its flexibility: “This is the first Gallus we bought, but we are more than happy to have invested in a Swiss quality product. The machine’s versatility is astonishing and the labels, the most important factor, of course, are of impressive quality”, says Ekonomou.

The company, headquartered in Athens, was founded in 1983 and has set its focus on self-adhesive labels, shrink sleeves and flexible materials. 120 people are currently employed at ETPA.

Since its launch in 2009, more than 450 machines of the Gallus ECS 340 have been sold worldwide.
