Gallus is to distribute Prati products in the US, which include slitting/rewinding, converting, finishing, and inspection machines. Gallus will also provide expertise, aftermarket services and parts to support the equipment from its headquarters in Philadelphia PA.
“With the Prati line,” said Brian Bishop, president of Gallus, Inc., “we can bring more value and product depth to our customers. Our strong aftermarket service base will support Prati as they move into the North American market, and their high-efficiency machines will benefit our customers, who can improve speed and accuracy while managing their post production costs better. For example, one Prati rewinding/converting machine can serve two full-time flexo presses, saving the customer significant costs on capital purchases.”
Prati’s area manager, Claudia Fabbri, commented: “The business cultures of our companies are very similar. We both pride ourselves on building high quality, long-term client relationships. In fact, the first Prati machines were sold to Gallus so our history together goes a long way back.”
