GS Labelprint chooses Durst Tau 330
GS Labelprint, based in Kamatero Athens, was established in 2014 by Mr. George Laoudis and is a natural continuity of the successful pre-existing business of its partners, with more than 20 years’ experience in the printing market. The company is active in the label market, printing adhesive labels and packaging materials (wholesale, retail, exports). Τhe evolving demand οf the market for quality products at competitive prices, as well as flexible, low-run jobs, fast switching times and delivery times, it has strategically focused on investing in state-of-the-art production equipment.
Recently, GS Labelprint invested in the Durst Tau 330 UV inkjet printer. Mr. Georgios Laoudis, General Manager, said: “We are already producing digital labels. However, our
growing customer demands and competition in the market require us to upgrade our production. After a market survey, we chose Durst’s Tau 330 printer, which adds speed to our production, lower production costs and a larger color range, since we can now manage up to 23 Pantone per job, offering up to 90% coverage of the Pantone color gamut. Print quality is impeccable and the inks are very durable. We can print labels on more materials, even on difficult, such as heat-sensitive. In addition, it offers ease of work management, significantly reducing pre-print time. We believe that with this investment we will respond to the demands of our customers and at the same time we will be able to enter new, more demanding, markets “.
