CTC Announces European Partnership
WEST CALDWELL, N.J.—CTC International and Emis Sp of Poland announced a strategic partnership regarding the sale of CTC’s label automation products in Europe.
Emis will display CTC’s new VTR “Value Turret Rewinder” at the Labelexpo Brussels show Hall 11 stand R90 from September 23–26, 2009. The turret rewinder will wind web nonstop from the Flexor 380C+ Slitter Rewinder, which is also a value priced machine. The combination of the CTC Value turret with the Emis Flexor model slitter rewinder is a natural fit providing a total value package to the label manufacturer says Rich Herbert, CTC’s VP for sales.
Additionally, Emis will assume sales responsibility for CTC’s line of label automation products for Eastern European countries, including Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine, Belarus, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Bosnia, and Macedonia. It is expected that the turret rewinders will be offered in both right hand and left hand designs.
As Emis is also a manufacturer, it is anticipated that they will begin to manufacture the CTC-designed rewinders and splicers at their factory in Lodz Poland in the near future. The machines will be converted to metric design and will incorporate more locally sourced components to better serve the European market.
