G3 Enterprises Revamps Label Workflow with Artwork Systems Installation
Press release from the issuing company
Gent, Belgium – Artwork Systems Group NV, a leading worldwide supplier of professional prepress software solutions, is pleased to announce that G3 Enterprises, a leader in wine and beverage label production for customers such as E&J Gallo Winery, has chosen Artwork Systems as its new workflow provider.
G3 Enterprises selected Artwork Systems’ award-winning ArtPro and Nexus configuration, in this configuration valued at $164k US, to replace a Heidelberg-based solution. Nexus is a comprehensive high-end workflow solution for label and packaging environments designed to increase productivity in pre-production through automation of labor-intensive prepress tasks. Nexus is a modular system built on three core modules: NexusIMPORTTM, NexusPROCESSORTM and NexusRIPTM, which may or may not run on the same hardware configuration, allowing users to configure the system to their own functionality, throughput and security needs.
ArtPro is one of the world’s most productive and effective editors for pre-production of labels and packaging. This workstation software, running on Apple Macintosh, includes many dedicated functions and tools to prepare the graphics for a wide array of packaging productions (litho printing, flexo printing, gravure, silk screen…). With more than 8000 licenses (1993-2004) sold worldwide, ArtPro has become the industry standard.
“Artwork Systems’ strong experience and heritage in label and package production technology is evident in its comprehensive approach to the Nexus workflow,” G3 Enterprises’ Technology Manager, Bruce Nielsen, says. “This workflow feels as if it were custom-engineered for us, and the level of support Artwork Systems provides follows suite in making our people feel they are always the priority.”
Says Dennis Mehta, President and CEO of Artwork Systems Inc., “The label is the most critical marketing component of wine, and so we are honored to have one of the world’s premier wine label manufacturers choose ArtPro and Nexus for its demanding production workflow. G3 Enterprises is a sophisticated, world-class organization that will show Artwork Systems to its greatest advantage. We are thankful for the opportunity.”
