SK Offset, a print, packaging, and branding specialist, has installed its first narrow-web flexo label press – a pre-owned Gallus EM 340 S and flexo printing machine for the short-run job ComcoCadet. Apart from the print units with UV curing, the press contains inline foiling, coating, laminating, cold foil, hot foil, diecutting, and screen capabilities. Installed in the first half of June 2022, SK Offset has built a comprehensive plant and a modern pressroom with both sustainability and with hygiene and maintainability in mind.
The company’s concept is to give the area’s top local and international brands a local capacity for extremely high-quality labels. There is a growing demand for dependable, high-quality suppliers with expertise working with major brands as the new generation industry sectors grow in Meerut.
The specific requirements of brand owners can be met by the Gallus label press and SK Offset’s extensive offline ancillary equipment, including the provision of bar and QR codes. The segments visible in the area include food, beverage, alcobev, as well as candles, cosmetics, and body care products.
Ayush Agarwal, director, SK Offset, says, “In addition to innovation, brand value, and versatile technology, we choose to invest in established technologies. The Gallus label press stood out as the best to us after we looked at all the presses and their setups.” The selection was influenced by the press’s capacity to accommodate a variety of processes and by how easily Heidelberg India could service it.
“We can print CMYK and all Pantone colors and metallic inks like silver and gold with coatings for gloss and matt finishes and textures. Our labels can face any environment depending on the specifications given by the customer. We have different types of substrates for various applications and environments,” concludes Agarwal.
