France-based Colorado Etiquettes installed the first Mark Andy
Evolution flexo press in Europe.
“I am delighted to see that our latest flexo technology is applicable to and affordable by the smaller label converters who are looking to improve their productivity and extend their market opportunities," Mark Andy's Executive VP of sales Tom Cavalco said at a ceremony to commemorate the occasion. "I congratulate Colorado on being the first label converter in France to benefit from what the Evolution has to offer.”
The new Evolution line, which was launched at Labelexpo in Brussels in 2019, is a perfect complement to Mark Andy’s award-winning Performance Series.
The Evolution installed at Colorado is a six-color full UV press with a 13” (330mm) web width.
The new press joins existing Mark Andy 830 and 2200 lines at the Rouen facility.
“We chose the Evolution because we believed it was the ideal press to allow us to fulfill our existing demand and offer the flexibility to explore new markets," said Laurent Fenot of Colorado Etiquettes. "We have a reputation for solving difficult problems here, so it is vital that the equipment complements our technical skills and knowhow. The Evolution will help us to develop products for niche markets, and as it’s our first 330mm press, it offers added capacity too.”
