Colognia Press a.s., located in the Czech Republic, has continued its investment in Martin Automatic technology with an MBSF unwind splicer and LRD rewinder with slitting capability fitted to its new Gallus Labelmaster 440 press at Kolin, some 70km east of the country’s capital city, Prague.
The new equipment joins previous Martin nonstop unwind and rewind technology fitted to Colognia’s Gallus RCS 330 presses in 2010 and 2015.
Established in 1996 and still privately owned, Colognia press now employs 140 people and sells its labels, shrink sleeves, and flexible packaging to 18 different countries including the USA, Mexico, and Argentina.
But most of its business is in Central and Western Europe, with the strongest markets in the German speaking countries.
Major market sectors served include food and drink, chemical and cosmetic, and pharmaceutical, but the company also satisfies demand for its products from the automotive, electrotechnical and logistics areas.
