Batsios Labels invests in first Gallus Label Press

It is the third Gallus ECS 340 in Greece within three years: Batsios Labels installed its first Gallus press, a conventional label press for the production of self-adhesive labels. Besides to an increased productivity and widening up of substrate and color range, the Greek label printer reports that the investment is already paying off since its installation in May 2019.

Based in Thessaloniki, Greece, Batsios Labels invested in a Gallus ECS 340 press with eight flexo and one screen printing unit plus included capability of cold-foil embossing. With a printing width of 340 mm the conventional label press convinces with stability, speed and quality and is in use mainly for the printing and converting of self-adhesive labels.

“For 6 months now we are getting each day more and more acquainted with the machine”, states Andreas Nikoletsopoulos, Business Development Manager at Batsios Labels. “We are delighted to see that our investment is already starting to pay off.”

Batsios Labels was established in 1989 and is based in Thessaloniki, Greece. With about 20 employees and 2 two printing presses the label printer and converter offers mainly self-adhesive labels. The reasons for this investment, according to Batsios Labels, are an increased productivity through higher speed and quality as well as the ability to print more than six colors. Also, the range of substrates is now wider for the company, this means they started using other materials such as BOPP-PE synthetics. The result is that Batsios is now able to offer a greater range of application to their customers. Excellent installation schedule and performance and almost immediate response to any request is the positive feedback by the print shop.

Nikoletsopoulos sums up: “Everything runs smoothly and efficiently. We are happy with our new Gallus ESC 340 and we have already started looking for ways to add another Gallus machine to our company.”
