ECS Newsletter - May 2010

Hello and welcome to issue number 42 of the ECS newsletter. Many things have taken place this month, mainly within the preparation of the fourth coming IPEX 2010 exhibition.

Firstly the new ECS website is operational. Please visit it via here you will find a full resource of the ECS product range, links to key staff members as well as view the newly produced ECS video.

A number of new products have been developed and tested in preparation for promotion this year.

ECS recently appointed a new organisation to monitor, audit and update the company on all factors relating to Health and Safety, D.G.S.A, Transportation and R.E.A.C.H We were so pleased and satisfied with the service and support provided both ECS and REACH 4 Safety have formed a partnership to provide the same service to its customers. Further information will follow however if you have any questions please contact ECS.

Early October 2009 saw ECS obtain a new distributor in the United States of America. This distributor has taken the ECS product range and launched it across the states with massive success. Volumes have increased with every order and at present we have 2 containers of product ready to ship.

The ECS products have been the success they have due to the overwhelming performance and quality ECS sustain as well as the amazing Technical strength and knowledge our dealer provides.

We are together reviewing the digital market as this is a major area of growth in the States and are in the progress of submitting new products.

A visit is in the pipeline to further support the distributor as well as put a face to the ECS brand within the States.

Direct Food Contact

Direct food contact and FDA are all terms and requirements which are becoming more and more popular within the printing industry. ECS were one of the first manufactures to obtain an independent certification of Direct Food Contact. At present ECS and it’s distributors have over 4 major packaging printers using our W707 world wide. The independent certification has given the distributor and end user the confidence to target a specific market where few other suppliers tread.

Off-line UV

UV Varnish has always been a big market for ECS and something we hope to further develop at IPEX. One key area of speciality is Off-Line UV for use at trade finishers. Most finishers find themselves purchasing a number of additives to help overcome difficult substrates, ink types or sticking within the stack. These additives incur considerable costs which are mistakenly over looked by the user as well as down time in product adjustment.

The ECS 'trade' range of UV varnishes are supplied ready to use with no need for additional materials. When calculated correctly this range saves the user money.

Please contact ECS for further information.

IPEX 2010

With IPEX almost upon us ECS wanted to dedicate this issue of the newsletter to the exhibition.

As you will be aware IPEX is the world’s biggest English-speaking event for print, publishing and media. It’s also a source of individual help for everyone involved in print. Whether you work in a large organisation or run a family operation, IPEX is the one business event you can’t afford to miss.

This exhibition will give ECS the opportunity to promote its tried and tested product range as well as showcase a number of the newly developed products ECS has to offer. Some of the new products ECS will offer will include:

  • Thermal Lamination emulsion designed to help improve the consistence of bond strength of the ever popular thermal lamination process.
  • The new range of emulsion coatings specifically formulated for use on the newly launched Presstek DI-AC digital press. Make sure you take a trip over to the Presstek stand in hall 7 to see the ECS coatings in action.
  • The complete "Calcium Removal" Wash.
  • Fountain Solution and Automatic wash concentrates for the ever growing export market.
  • The best emulsion coating for use on uncoated stocks.
  • Digital UV Product range

We at ECS are excited and looking forward to meeting both existing as well as new customers at IPEX. We are hoping to have a number of the export ECS distributors support us on our stand, however there will also be the familiar faces of Darren Hallett, Neil Fletcher, Tom Cropper and of course the new face of Amelie Poole.

If you would like to plan ahead your IPEX experience please contact ECS via to make an appointment with us then please do. Darren, Neil, Tom and Amelie will all be on site for the whole exhibition so please come along and see us.

Along with a number of new products ECS will also have the new look company brochure and product range. Within it you will find a core range of products designed to complement any distributer, Ink company or machine manufacture.

A member of the ECS staff who will be on site will be happy to provide you with a copy as well as discuss the range of products and make any recommendation you require.
