Following the appointment last year of Scott Wilson as Regional Sales Manager for Scotland, Allen Coding Systems – part of ITW – is continuing to focus on growing its business north of the border, with the intention of increasing sales by 20 per cent over the next 12 months.
One of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of thermal transfer, hot foil, ink jet and laser coding and marking equipment, Allen Coding is targeting primarily the food, pharmaceutical, beverage, and industrial processing and packaging industries across Scotland.
Relatively untapped by Allen Coding, Scotland provides a wider audience for the market-leading company which has been established for over 35 years and is best known for its world-class product range, personal, professional service and problem solving capabilities.
Allen Coding products include an extensive range of hot foil, thermal transfer, laser and ink jet coding and marking technology, as well as carton coders. The recently launched ICON laser coder, for example, is competitively priced, easy to use and delivers high quality printing for applications in the beverage, cosmetics, industrial and electronics industries, such as labels, cartons, plastics, glass, wood and textiles.
The popular 53LT intermittent and continuous thermal transfer systems were originally developed with the food industry and users of hot foil coders in mind. The low-cost, high performance units provide many of the advanced features of more expensive thermal transfer machines, including 300 dpi print resolution; cassette ribbon loading; 600-metre ribbon capacity; 53mm x 30mm print area with print speeds up to 400mm per second; and a best of breed thermal print head.
With an experienced coding specialist covering Scotland and the north of England, who offers extensive knowledge of non-contact coding in particular, and who is perfectly placed to help organisations manage the transition from one technology to another, Allen Coding is confident in its future.
Says Scott Wilson: “As an engineer who has solved many coding challenges I am able to work with clients to identify the best technology for the job.
He continues: “Plus, I’m backed up by a service team made up of designers as well as ‘fixers’. This means that, as well as supplying the best-selling hot foil technology in the world, along with reliable thermal transfer printers, continuous inkjet and excellent laser systems, we can offer the entire package, right down to high quality consumables, 24-hour customer service and support.”
