Ink and varnish specialist Pulse Roll Label Products kicked off Labelexpo with the announcement of a new partnership with Edale Ltd, British manufacturer of high technology, narrow to mid web flexographic and hybrid digital printing presses and converting equipment.
The strategic alliance sees British-based Pulse Roll Label Products join forces with Edale to supply narrow web flexo inks, coatings and varnishes for use on Edale’s FL (Flexo Line) range of presses on display in its showroom in Whiteley, Hampshire, UK.
James Boughton, Managing Director at Edale said, “We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Pulse Roll Label Products, a forward thinking, fellow British company with shared values and a common desire to innovate. Working with Pulse Roll Label Products will support Edale’s philosophy to combine industry expertise with innovative technology.”
Boughton continued, “Pulse Roll Label Products’ solutions-based approach, focus on R&D and range of high performance narrow web products makes them the ideal ink partner for us to work with. We have been particularly impressed with the quality and reliability of the company’s PureTone UV flexo ink system which, as part of a total colour management solution, also offers significant pre-press efficiencies and cost savings for today’s label printer.”
Gary Seward, Managing Director, Pulse Roll Label Products Ltd said, “We are proud to partner with Edale and work with a fellow British manufacturer renowned for design and engineering quality and innovation. Our focus is to provide label converters with complete solutions for next generation narrow web printing and collaboration with other leading flexo industry experts, like Edale, is an important part of our strategy for future success.
