Mark Andy Press Goes to UK Plant

ST. LOUIS, MO | Mark Andy says Reflex Label Plus has ordered a top-of-the-range Performance Series P7 for its plant in Barwell, Leicestershire, UK. The new press, which features the updated P7 platform, brings to 27 the number of Mark Andy presses currently in use at Reflex plants, including the seven P Series presses installed last year at Boston, MA. This will be the first Mark Andy to be installed at the Barwell site.
