Andrews Decal Company Changes Name to Gallas Label & Decal
Label printer unveils new identity, along with a freshly designed website.January 2013
Andrews Decal Company recently announced the rebranding of its company to Gallas Label & Decal. The name change reflects the ongoing leadership that helped the label printer prosper for more than 65 years. Gallas Label & Decal celebrates the launch with a new website at www.gallaslabel.com—complete with a fresh design. The same owner, management and representatives will continue in their roles in this family-owned business. The company will retain the same phone number and Chicago location.
“We’re excited about launching Gallas Label & Decal,” said Mark Gallas, vice president. “This seamless change rebrands our company and reflects the care and passion we bring to our business. It’s a branding challenge we regularly help clients resolve—and now we’re doing it for ourselves.”
In 1947, Andrews Decal Company was founded and named after one of the partners. Although Andrews left the company in its early years, the name stuck (just like Andrews’ labels). Henry Gallas merged his own printing company, Gateway Printing, with Andrews Decal Company in 1954. Henry’s son, Gary, joined the company in 1978. In 2005, Gary’s son, Mark, came onboard.
Historically, Gallas reinvested to grow, improve and strengthen business through equipment acquisitions, facility improvements and training employees. Today, the company prints labels for a variety of markets that include industrial, spirits and health and beauty aids, to name a few. Management committed to lean manufacturing, ISO 9001:2008 initiatives and added more than 50 UL approved label constructions to its extensive roster of offerings. In 2013, Gallas plans to apply for ISO certification.
“We look forward to continuing to provide a high level of satisfaction,” said Gary Gallas, president. “We’re grateful to our clients whose loyalty and business helped us achieve success and longevity.”
