USA • Frank Hasselberg, Gallus, Inc. Western regional sales manager, secured an order in July for a second Gallus ECS 340 label printing press for Best Label, Inc. with headquarters in Cerritos CA. Best Label took delivery of its first Gallus ECS 340 just eight months earlier, and has been so pleased with the acquisition that CEO Ernie Wong and Operations Manager Gary Ingle committed to a second press.

Best Label specializes in clear packaging where the back of the label is visible through the container. These double-image labels require a four color process, then a white silkscreen, then an image on the back that the consumer sees through the bottle. This specialization has put Best Label ahead of competitors who are not focusing as much on silkscreen. Previously, most of their screen work was done on older Gallus R-160 presses. Looking to improve productivity, Best Label took delivery of a new Gallus ECS 340 in December, 2015, and its 13” (330 mm) width immediately opened up more capabilities for wider web silkscreen work and larger labels. So, upgrading to a new Gallus ECS 340 meant they could double or even triple their productivity versus the older presses.
