A jam-packed stand results in incremental sales for the company
St. Louis, Missouri, USA (27 October 2012)
After a very busy three days in Chicago last month, Mark Andy and Rotoflex are celebrating the fruits of their labors. The Mark Andy printing press offerings - both traditional flexo and digital - have seen significant successes with the Rotoflex line of slitter/rewinders experiencing record bookings as well.
Labelexpo offered an opportunity for the company to put its latest technology designs on display. Quick Change Die Cut (QCDC) and ProLED curing technologies were featured on the innovation award-winning Mark Andy Performance Series machines, generating the sale of 19 new Performance Series presses globally. The brand also used this platform to launch the SRL 4.0, a narrow-web digital press for converters interested in expanding their capabilities. This new foray into digital has proven beneficial for the company, with interest in the product extremely high and multiple orders already on the books.
In addition to newer presses, Mark Andy continues to enjoy success with the 2200 machine. Since the show, more than twelve 2200s have been sold globally, a testament to the durability and popularity of this benchmark product, which has been in production at Mark Andy since the 1980s and is the most installed narrow-web machine in the world.
The Rotoflex line of slitter/rewinders was also a draw for attendees. The recently redesigned VLI line was introduced to the crowds, showcasing advanced web tension management ideal for thin films and flexible packaging requirements. The industry standard VSI rewinder and DSI die-cutter were on display as well, wowing attendees with extreme finishing capabilities. In the month leading up to the show, Rotoflex experienced record-breaking sales, which were enhanced with an additional 12 machines being sold at the show.
"We could not be more proud of the performance of our Mark Andy and Rotoflex brands," states PJ Desai, CEO of Mark Andy Inc. "Our product development, engineering and support teams worked tirelessly to prepare for this event and the result has been outstanding. We look forward to continued success into 2013."
