Investment-proof and productive production with used Gallus presses too– this enables Gallus Classics, the division of Gallus serving the preowned machinery market. With refurbished machines as well as a spare parts service for older machine systems and other services, Gallus Classics offers a comprehensive portfolio for second-hand Gallus machines.

Extensive service program for pre-owned machines

The Gallus Classics team helps customers to ensure that they can continue to operate their used Gallus machines successfully. A pool of new and used original spare parts helps as well as a large network of relationships to procure urgently needed parts. The printing experts are also repairing old Gallus printing presses and carrying out upgrades so that they can be serviced again by the Gallus Service and Helpdesk team. An upgrade campaign is currently running for the machines of the Gallus TCS 250 and Gallus EM 260/340/410/510 series.

Gallus pre-owned machines ex-works with manufacturer’s warranty

Depending on the model and conditions, a six- or twelve-month manufacturer’s warranty can be given on a revised press. Every retrofit carried out by the Gallus Classics team has successfully passed a 360 degree machine check before delivery and meets all predefined product standards. This ensures that the pre-used Gallus machine system meets the technical requirements and maximum safety.

The Gallus Classics portfolio includes not only upgrades, retrofits and individual repairs of older machine systems but also a range of other services such as revisions and repairs of printing units, the rental of offset printing units or the replacement of offset rollers and their refurbishment.

“We know that there is still enormous potential in a pre-owned Gallus machine,” explains Giuseppe Gallelli, head of the business unit Gallus Classics. “That’s why my team and I are doing everything we can to ensure that our customers are as satisfied with their newly acquired second-hand machine as if they had bought a new Gallus machine.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
