U.S. company shuts down pressroom to ensure every employee could participate in Eagle System’s certification process.

Cartamundi, based in Dallas, Texas, recently completed Eagle Systems’ intensive certification process for its entire pressroom staff. The training was conducted on the Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system, installed in 2013. “We run extended hours on that press, and wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page with the process. Now, all the pressmen are certified… we brought the whole team in,” said Bob Nickel, EVP Operations, Cartamundi - Dallas.

To ensure everyone was able to complete the training (20 pressmen, and another 8 from management and support staff), Cartamundi decided to take the approach of shutting down its entire press operations for a shift and a half, on a Saturday. The training included a full day of on-site instruction with Eagle Systems personnel. A third of the time was conducted in classroom instruction, and another eight hours spent on the press itself.

Cartamundi produces cards and cartons of all types. The Eco-Eagle Cold Foil press gave the company an advantage over its competitors, and with its entire operation now trained in the same processes, they anticipate even better results. “Cartamundi is an example of Cold Foil done right,” said Mike King, President, Eagle Systems. “They are just as passionate about getting it right as we are, and we are pleased to have been able to do this comprehensive certification program with them. We are looking forward to continuing to support them well into the future.”
