British Columbia’s Glenmore Says "Yes" to Eagle Systems

Tuesday, September 08, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Cold Foil System Outshines Competition at Richmond Print and Packaging Provider Dedicated to “Helping You Shine” 

Richmond, BC, Canada - Eagle Systems, Inc., a U.S. based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, today announced the completed installation of its Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system at the manufacturing operations of Glenmore Custom Print + Packaging in British Columbia, Canada. The family owned and operated commercial printing and folding carton manufacturer promotes its most revered attributes as service, turnaround time, and quality, while touting their upbeat corporate motto of "We Help You Shine”. The Eagle Cold Foil System was installed in mid-June, and now operates in unison with the company’s Heidelberg XL 106 8 colour plus coater UV offset press. For more product information, go to www.thefoilexperts.com.
With about 40% of the company’s revenue driven by folding carton, and 50% commercial sheetfed [digital printing 10%], Glenmore thrives in a crowded and demanding, yet cost-elastic, segment where every production or quality advantage is critical. And for high-end print work, their clients look to them to be the cost-efficient alternative. Another driving factor in Glenmore’s success is their youthful, yet highly-educated spunk.
“Every key position in our company is filled with an experienced, but young, and super energetic individual,” notes General Manager James Rowley. “The average age of our management team is about 32, which is comparatively very young by industry standards. But it’s our youthful and fresh spirit that inspires us to always aggressively pursue new opportunities, embrace bigger and better, and connect with the newer generation of print buyers. That’s why we often stand alone in saying ‘Yes’ to our clients. It's another reason why we saw the value of partnering with Eagle Systems.
“We’ve spent the last month dialing the Eagle system in and learning its unique capabilities. So far the reaction from our clients has been positive. While cold foil will have an impact on our overall folding carton business, it’ll really help us cultivate our higher-end confectionery, beverage, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical packaging segments. In addition, Eagle also offers us a new product range to offer our POP signage clients.
“Eagle president Mike King showed us that he would run through a brick wall to help us succeed. His commitment to cold foil was the most impressive, especially when compared to his competitors. Vendors and printers alike said that the Eagle was the most reliable and well serviced system on the market. It seemed like a no brainer. We quickly came to the consensus that Eagle gave us the best chance at a faster ROI.
“While Cold Foil's reputation has been negatively affected locally by inferior foiling systems, three other production managers I spoke with who have an Eagle System on their press each highly recommended Mike's system. We even compared several other cold foil systems, but we saw the quality, reputation, reliability, and consistency that made the Eagle System the best choice. Eagle Cold Foil will quickly enable us to further stand out in our market.
