Big Turnout for Gallus, Pitman Roadshow in Dallas
PHILADELPHIA Pa.—The Gallus roadshow completed a successful stop at the Dallas distribution center for Pitman, an Agfa Company, to showcase the new Gallus ECS 340 label press. Despite unusually foul weather, 42 representatives from 22 companies stopped to see the press and discuss their printing needs with Gallus, Pitman, and the other partner companies that participated in the roadshow. Representatives from 3M, Apex, tesa, DuPont, Esko, Xymid, Torelief, and Daetwyler also attended the event and displayed their products.
The roadshow is designed to showcase the Gallus ECS 340 flexographic press, at convenient locations around the country. It is mounted on a specially modified 53-foot semi-trailer with custom staging and foul weather curtains to keep visitors dry, so there’s never a rain-out of an event.
“The showcase offered visitors a wonderful opportunity to see the best the industry has to offer today,” states Tom Alba, vice president of packaging at Pitman. “The Gallus press brought all the flexo pieces together and provided a roadmap of how flexo, digital, and wide format work in sync to provide a greater opportunity for expanding customer applications.”
Following the Dallas and Philadelphia roadshows, Gallus reported the sale of six additional ECS 340 presses, bringing the total to 12 in North America since its debut.
Several additional roadshows are planned in the coming months.
