Auckland-based Nekkorb Solutions has been appointed a new, Australasian sales and service agent for Vetaphone, an innovative Danish supplier of corona and plasma surface treatment technology for the printing, converting and extrusion industries.
Nekkorb, established in 2009 by Frank Brokken, has a well-proven record in capital equipment and supplies for the graphic arts industry with an impressive portfolio of market-leading brands, including Comexi, MPS, Dantex, Esko, BGM and more.
Frank Brokken sees Vetaphone as a high-quality manufacturer that will add significant sales potential to his company at a time when converters are embracing new technologies in a highly competitive marketplace.
“Demand is changing fast, and we need to offer equipment that meets and exceeds our customers’ expectations of reliability and production efficiency. As the company that invented corona and continues to pioneer surface treatment, there is no better brand we could offer to the market than Vetaphone,” Brokken said.
“We’re a family business, and so is Vetaphone, and there is an obvious synergy between the two that will benefit our mutual customers. We are really excited about the future,” added Natasha (Tash) Brokken, a daughter of the owner who is lined up to take over the business and ensure continuity for customers.
Holger Selenka, sales manager for Vetaphone Asia-Pacific, commented: “We are impressed with Nekkorb’s existing list of manufacturers, many of which dovetail well with our technology in other parts of the world. We know Frank and his team have high expectations for building the Vetaphone brand in Australasia, and we look forward to giving them all the support they need.”
