Inovalabel – Investment in Mark Andy technology
ROMANIA • Inovalabel’s production facility now includes six presses in a different web widths from 178 mm (7”) to 430 mm (17”), including Mark Andy 2200, XP5000, and three of the latest Performance Series in P3 and P5 formats. Looking ahead, Inovalabel has signed a licence agreement with UK based Fix-a-Form Ltd for the production of multi page labels, and intends to develop its business with other special products. The majority of the company’s output is for the food and beverage industry.
The latest P3 by Mark Andy is fitted with cold foil capability, but otherwise both P3s have the high standard specification from Mark Andy, with die cutting and sheeting, while the P5 has a corona treater and turn bars. The Mark Andy XP5000, which was installed in 2006, is still working a triple shift, five days a week.
In the twenty years since it printed its first job, Inovalabel has traded under three names. Initially founded as Gebacolor, it was a Pago Group company from 2009-12, and subsequently has been reborn under Swiss ownership. But, throughout it various incarnations, it has remained a staunch believer in Mark Andy technology, and today has an annual turnover of EUR 6.5 million and converts some 7 million sq/m of substrate each year at its headquarters in Iasi, in the north of Romania.
