Company will lead sales efforts in 7 Canadian Provinces.

Saddle Brook, NJ NOVEMBER 1, 2016 - Unilux, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of strobe lights for inspection, today announced the addition of Nelco Canada (Nelco) to their worldwide sales network. Nelco will be Unilux’s exclusive sales representative in 7 Canadian provinces: Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.

“Nelco is a welcome addition to the Unilux team,” said Tom Herold, VP Sales-Americas. “They’ve been helping customers improve productivity and minimize waste for years in the same industries we serve, making them a valuable resource for our customers.”

Nelco Canada brings over 40 years of experience in the paper, steel, printing, and converting industries, aligning with Unilux manufacturing markets. They are known for their hands-on experience and good working relationships with their customers. Nelco represents several manufacturers with complementary products.

“Unilux is a natural fit with our lineup of components for continuous web processing,” shared Nelson Baumgardner, President of Nelco Canada. “By adding stroboscopic inspection, we’re now able to give our customers insight to every aspect of the process; from the unwind to the rewind. Unilux strobes will help our customers to confirm quality at full production speed.”

Unilux inspection lights use the stroboscopic effect to freeze images of sections of webs moving at full production speed, making the smallest of defects clearly visible. This enables operators to use their knowledge of the product and printing process to determine the cause of the defect and take appropriate action to fix the problem or stop expensive, value-added processes to reduce waste.
