McLean Packaging Installs Eagle Cold Foil System


MOORESTOWN, NJ | Eagle Systems, a US-based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, has completed installation of its Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system at the manufacturing operations of McLean Packaging Corp. in Moorestown, NJ. The Folding Carton Division of McLean in Moorestown produces high-end paperboard and plastic folding cartons and lids, tag and label applications, rigid and flexible windowing, specialty hot stamping and embossing, as well as silk screening. The Eagle Cold Foil System was installed in mid-December, and now operates in unison with the company’s Manroland 700 press.

“I congratulated Eagle Systems on their outstanding performance in installing our new cold foil machine,” says Joseph Fenkel, McLean chairman and CEO. “What impressed me the most was how hands-on Mike King [Eagle president and CEO] and his staff were in servicing and installing the system. Eagle allowed us to start producing cold foil in a very short period of time [two days]. When they told us it would be in operation by a certain date, they were true to their word and made sure it happened. We have been very happy with the quality of the cold foil coming off the press.”

Fenkel continues, “…After investigating five or six alternatives we found Eagle Systems. Their technology will enhance our packaging capabilities, while producing products that we envision will jump off the shelf. Eagle will give us that significant competitive industry advantage. With the speed of the installation and the very short learning curve, we’re already well into the marketing stage of our implementation plan. We’ve developed a customer introduction booklet that demonstrates our new capabilities and increased quality achieved by Eagle’s perfect registration. There are so many advantages to Eagle’s cold foil system, and we’re aiming to exploit them all. For example, cold foil is recyclable, enabling us to be that much more efficient and cost-effective with material expenses. And printing on Mylar enables us to expand our reach and serve new client needs.”
