For its rapidly growing facility in Napa, CA, Fortis Solutions Group recently installed the Gallus RCS 430 from Heidelberg to further expand its ability to execute intricate label designs for its customers.
Focusing on the wine and spirits label market, the Fortis Solutions Group facility looked to the Gallus RCS 430 to produce the highest quality label for any complex design a customer may want.
The RCS 430 supports six printing processes including offset printing, flexographic printing, screen printing, hot foil stamping, and embossing – all of which can be readily integrated for ultimate flexibility. Similarly, secondary processes like cold foil embossing, laminating, and reverse-side printing can be accomplished with the RCS platform.
“The RCS 430 definitely has a niche for the market we are in,” said Brendan Kinzie, president of Wine and Spirits for Fortis Solutions Group. “We work with many talented creative agencies and designers, and their pursuit of excellence in design means that we need to offer a platform that can accommodate everything from offset, to flexography, to digital, all with the highest level of execution. This press allows us to receive a job and adjust the press to the label design to create exactly what our demanding clients need in a matter of a few minutes.
“The RCS and Gallus have been involved in the premium packaging industry for a very long time, and they have a great reputation in the wine and spirits market,” added Kinzie. “When we decided to launch our greenfield startup in Napa, we made sure that our first equipment purchases would be an investment in our future. The RCS 430 gives us the ability to offer a great product to our customers – whatever their needs may be – while also giving us the flexibility to grow.”
