ECS Goes Alcohol Free With Pinnacle!

After months of research and development the team at ECS are proud to promote the new Alcohol Free Sheetfed Fount Solution, Pinnacle.

Unlike most other AF systems on the market the Pinnacle Fount works by using carefully selected materials which completely replicate all the benefits of alcohol. This has been achieved by our team of chemists working with printers across the world to understand fully how and why they use and accommodate alcohol.

Pinnacle Fount works in combination with a careful set up and cleanup process which fully prepares the press for the installation. Having developed this product with many customers ECS knows it to work on both new and old printing presses in all climates.

For detailed information and setup on the new Pinnacle Fount Solution please contact us via

With oil prices rising why not use Pinnacle as a means to help reduce the impact of the continued increase of IPA to your customer?

New Fleet

The UK market relies heavily upon the logistics service ECS provides its customers. The service was implemented several years ago and grew due to the changes within ADR legislation.

Further growth within the UK has resulted in additional vehicles being added to the already growing fleet.

Bio Shampoo - SND128 is a newly formulated cleaner designed to help deep clean and cleanse the rollers as well as remove glaze and build ups. Its formulation makes it a safer alternative to other products on the market. For information and pricing please contact us via

Pinnacle Performs

ECS would like to express both a big thank you and congratulations to Mr. Akhlaq A. Khan, Deputy General Manager Operations and all the Directors of Saima Packaging, Karachi, Pakistan for becoming the first company to run sheetfed alcohol free in Pakistan.

Following the installation of their new Heidelberg XL as part of their total commitment to the future of the Pakistani Printing Industry, this is the next step to push forward the boundaries of environmental and green issues within Pakistan. They have also converted their Heidelberg Speedmaster CD to the same alcohol system and plan to convert the rest of their excellent range of machinery over the next few months.

It takes courage to be the first and ECS and their distributor are proud to have played a part in their vision for an environmental friendly and successful Printing future for Pakistan.

Both Neil and Tom have recently returned home from the Gulf Print and Pac Exhibition in Dubai. The feedback so far is very positive and both Tom and Neil would like to thank everybody who took the time to come and see them.

ECS would also like to welcome Sam Nicholson the family. Sam joins the purchasing team within ECS and replaces Helen Saxton. Sam has already shown his value to the company and helps to further strengthen the Operations department.

With recent changes made to the labelling via CLP ECS has invested in a number of new over printers to ensure the highest quality can be achieved when producing labels. Many customers welcome the new format and some have decided to make an additional investment to sustain and promote their own branding. If this is something you are interested in then please contact us via to discuss costs and options.
