XSYS has appointed Ferag Australia as the new distributor of its flexographic printing plates and platemaking equipment portfolio in Australia and New Zealand.
Ferag Australia, based in Matraville, NSW, in addition to solutions for the graphics industry and systems for internal material flow, also distributes packaging machines and palletizing systems from other suppliers.
The company works with its customers to implement projects, from initial planning, installation and commissioning, to operator training and after-sales support.
Roy Schoettle, vice president of XSYS in APAC, said: “We are very pleased that Ferag will be representing XSYS in this part of the world. The company is well established and a respected supplier in the graphics industry, having looked after both countries over many years with its existing portfolio of products.
“We feel confident that our customers will truly profit from a dedicated company that will focus on their needs day to day. It’s an exciting time as packaging – and indeed, XSYS as a leading supplier to this industry – is growing around the world. Australia and New Zealand are very much a part of this growth.”
“The opportunity to take on the XSYS portfolio has come at a great time for Ferag as we continue to move the company forward into new industry segments,” added Philip Batty, managing director of Ferag Australia.
“Naturally, our main priorities now are to ensure that existing XSYS customers are well looked after and that the changeover is as seamless as possible. Our team is looking forward to representing this world-class portfolio of flexographic solutions with best-in-class sales, service and technical support,” Batty said.
FERAG will stock and supply nyloflex flexographic plates, nyloprint letterpress plates, and nylosolv solvent washout. The agreement came into effect on February 24, 2023.
