Managing director Gerard Heanue says Heidelberg is ‘very excited to be broadening our portfolio into the labels sector’

The Gallus packaging portfolio has been sold by Heidelberg UK since mid-2014, and now the business is turning its attention to increasing its presence in the labels sector—the DCS 340 label printer proved a popular attraction at Labelexpo in Brussels this September. Managing director Gerard Heanue says the print giant is ‘very excited’ to be broadening its labels portfolio.

Christof Naier, vice president sales and services for the Gallus labels business, says: “We see great opportunities by joining Heidelberg UK.

“It will combine the extensive expertise of the Gallus technicians with the structural and logistical benefits of operating within the Heidelberg organisation. This combination will allow us to significantly increase our service performance.”

April will also see three Gallus Group employees transferring to Heidelberg’s service team, while Gallus will sell its Didsbury headquarters. 

Matt Rockley, presses specialist at Heidelberg UK, adds: “Adding the Gallus portfolio is a very exciting development. We have worked with labels printers for many years but this will spearhead a further push into that market.

“The technology is awesome and there are on-going product developments, always with an eye to offering efficient and high quality products.”
