MGI TO EXPAND UK DISTRIBUTION WITH AFGA GRAPHICS

 

In a move offering great benefits for both companies, MGI Technology, UK distributor for French manufacturer MGI S.A., has announced an agreement with Agfa Graphics to distribute its range of digital printers in the UK and Ireland.

 

The announcement, confirmed on day one of Ipex 2014, follows successful partnerships in a number of European countries including Switzerland, where in 2012 Agfa Switzerland was awarded the MGI EMEA Distributor of the Year trophy.

 

Joergen Vad, Agfa Graphics Managing Director, UK and Ireland, said: “Our experience shows that the MGI portfolio is very complimentary to our own workflow and CtP products, so now with access to MGI’s proven digital printers it means we can offer even more added value for our customers.”

 

Commenting on behalf of MGI Technology, David Evans, Managing Director, added: “We are delighted to be working with one of the leading printing equipment suppliers. Agfa’s commercial print customers will certainly appreciate and understand our conventional cost structure, with no click charge, when making their next digital investment. The Agfa sales team has already been trained on our range of digital printers and I can tell they are all “champing at the bit” and read to get started.”

 

The agreement covers the full range of MGI equipment including the popular Meteor DP8700 XL versatile digital printer and the unique JETvarnish 3D, which takes digital spot UV coating to a new dimension, featuring increased throughput for flat spot UV jobs and amazing 3D raised effects.
