Komcan, the exclusive Canadian distributor of Komori offset printing presses and auxiliary equipment in Canada, has sold a new Komori Lithrone GLX 6-colour, 41-inch press with a coater to Ellis Paper Box in Mississauga, Ontario – an industry-leading packaging and folding-carton specialist catering to the pharmaceutical market. The new press was installed at Ellis’ 60,000-sq.-ft. Mississauga production facility, and comes with the highest level of automation and inspection systems available in the market today. Some of those features include PQA-S Sheet Inspection and colour control, PDC-X scanner and a full array of automation including logistics for skid movement. The versatile 18,000-sheet-per-hour press is capable of running up to 40-point board with a fully automatic non-stop feeder and delivery. Founded in 1983 by Bill Ellis, The Ellis Group has grown into one of the largest and most successful privately owned folding-carton manufacturers. This is Ellis’ 4th Komori GLX flagship press, and its 7th Komori press!

“We are beyond excited to introduce another new GLX into Ellis Paper Box. Ellis continues to grow, and it’s a testament to our equipment that they continue to partner with Komcan and Komori,” said Brad Ranson, Komcan Sales Manager. “We look forward to continue to work with Dave and the entire Ellis team.” Dave Ellis, President of Ellis Paper Box, added: “We’ve always enjoyed working with Komcan and Komori as partners with our press purchases. The new Komori GLX in our Mississauga facility with the high level of automation, will bring us to the next level in supplying our customers with the highest level of folding cartons.”
