Comments: One of the world’s largest energy curable ink specialists, Zeller+Gmelin is a family-owned energy curable ink specialist. Zeller+Gmelin is headquartered in Eislingen, Germany and has subsidiaries worldwide, including Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Mexico, The Netherlands, Poland, Turkey, and the US. Zeller+Gmelin produces UV and EB inks and coatings for commercial printing, packaging, labels and preformed plastic containers, including shrink sleeves, in-mold labels, flexible packaging and folding cartons.
Zeller+Gmelin manufactures a wide range of energy curable inks and coatings, including LED UV, EB, UV and H-UV ink systems. With an eye on food packaging, Zeller+Gmelin launched its low odor, low migration Uvaflex-FCM-Y81 UV flexo ink series, which eliminates BPA-containing raw materials and meets the requirements of the Nestlé Guidance Note. The company’s ChromaSync 20:20 Color Management System allows printers to manage their color requirements.
In September 2018, Zeller+Gmelin announced two key hires. Eberhard Klenner was named the new head of the narrow web division, while Tibor Küstermann was added to strengthen technical service for metal deco inks.
