ECS Newsletter - October 2011

Hello and welcome to the October edition of the ECS Newsletter.

Both September and October proved to be a very busy months for ECS and as such the September newsletter was missed.

First of all we welcomed Duane Gilbert to the team at ECS. Duane is working within our purchasing team and brings a wealth of experience to the department. He has settled in well within the ECS family and has already offered many ideas and suggestions to further improve an already strong department.

Darren, Tom and Neil have once again been busy travelling with Neil finding himself in Kenya and South Africa, Darren in the Czech Republic, Italy, and Belgium and Tom continuing to support Asia from his base in Thailand.

The technical team have also been working on some further new Matt UV technology including a super Matt UV Varnish which we hope to bring to Market in December.

Other developments include a new and more powerful heavy duty plate cleaner and a stronger and concentrated emulsion cleaner. Please remember the technical team can develop bespoke products if required.

Over the coming weeks further updates will be made to the ever popular ECS website. Updates will include full details of the FOGRA approved washes and fount solutions along with copies of the FOGRA certificates along with some new ECS product information guides.

And remember, if the product you require is not listed please contact us as we are sure to have it available

ECS launches ECS North America

For several years ECS has worked to develop and grow its exposure within North America working with a number of dealers and distributors. The potential of the market is such that ECS saw an ideal opportunity to replicate the same structure as is already in place in Perth Australia with ECS Oceania.

It is with great excitement that ECS launches the newest member to the ECS Group, ECS North America.

ECS NA will operate from two strategic sites, one in Deer Park New York and the other in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania with a view to opening another stock holding and distribution site in Dallas Texas. Each site will hold and distribute a full range of products from the ECS catalogue including Waterbased and UV Coatings for all applications, Pressroom Chemistry which will include FOGRA approved washes and Founts along with other Pressroom Consumables.

The front man for this exciting venture is John Scacco, a highly experienced applications specialist with over 30 years experience within the print industry. ECS prides itself on being a technically driven and focused company so the choice to operate with such a strong technical resource as John was never a doubt and a perfect fit for our business.

Our own Technical and Commercial Manager Darren Hallett will also be supporting John in both the development and growth of ECS North America.
