North America solves curling issues on uncoated substrates

Working closely with their customer John Scacco of ECS North America have managed to help a printing company in NYC get rid of their curls.

Running full blown 4 colour coverage on 50 lb. parchment paper utilizing ECS Product W739 designed for uncoated stocks was able to work & turn this product immediately with no offsetting or picking what so ever.

This has been a major step forward for the customer who has been struggling with this issue for some time.

North America Battles through the storm

After the recent storms that have hit the east side of USA ECSNA are proud to say that business continued without letting customers down!! Throughout the wind, rain, power outage, and even the unexpected snow that hit the region ECSNA were still able to keep in contact with customers and react to their needs.
