Edale will host an Open House and Suppliers Exhibition for existing and potential customers, as well as their distributors, at its premises in Hampshire, UK on 8th February 2012.
The Exhibition will see fifteen key suppliers exhibiting at the table top style event; confirmed exhibitors are Alphasonics, API Foils , Creation Reprographics, Cheshire Engraving, Daco Solutions, Esko Artwork, Fiberweb, GEW, Herma, J.M Heafords, IST, Rotometrics, Tesa Tapes, Vetaphone and Zeller & Gmellin. The BPIF will also have a presence at the event.
Edale will also be taking this opportunity to officially open their second unit – due to increased growth – and the local Mayor and Mayoress of Fareham will be in attendance to cut the ribbon and open the event!
As well as the table top exhibiting section there will be twenty minute presentations taking place throughout the day from companies presenting new technologies in the marketplace. There will also be a presentation hosted by guest speaker John Bambery, Chairman of BPIF Labels.
Demonstrations will be held on the new FL-350 press, ideal for the printing of flexible packaging film and ticketing substrates. There will also be a Gamma scratch card line, and an FDC-510, flatbed die cutting machine which is used for the cutting and creasing of packaging materials, available for viewing. The Gamma can be configured to include a number of different options including screen printing unit, thermal inkjet and personalisation systems.
Further machines, being finalised in Edale’s production department, will be available for viewing: three Beta modular presses, and two Alpha compact flexo presses.
Customers of all of the suppliers, as well as Edale, will be invited to tour the company’s factory, showroom and offices and assist in live demos. The open day will make up one day of the Distributors training schedule and will see the distributors increase knowledge on not only Edale products but also those of their suppliers.
