Flexographic printers in Australia and New Zealand will now benefit from FERAG’s long history and experience in the graphic arts industry, having looked after both countries over many years with their existing portfolio of graphics products. Now FERAG has moved into the growing packaging industry and will bring this wealth of knowledge to flexo printers, looking after their needs with the leading range of XSYS plate products including nyloflex flexographic plates, nyloprint letterpress plates as well as nylosolv washout solvent.
FERAG Australia/NZ managing director Philip Batty stated that it has long been the dream to move the company into the packaging industry but it would only do this if the right portfolio of products were to become available. “Now that XSYS (formerly part of the Flint Group) has decided to move agencies, both the ‘time and product line’ were the perfect fit to start our push for FERAG into the growing Australian/NZ packaging industry.”
“This is just the start of our drive into the packaging industry. We will add more products to this area as we move forward. However, our first priority is to make sure that existing XSYS customers are looked after, and we will make sure that the changeover is seamless and that our clients will only benefit. Our FERAG team will be second to none when it comes to sales, service and technical support,” commented Batty.
Roy Schoettle, Regional VP APAC XSYS, stated, “We are pleased to have FERAG join us and representing XSYS in this part of the world. We know they have been around for many years in the graphics industry and have a reputation that is second to none. Now that they have moved into the packaging area, we feel confident that our customers will truly benefit from a company that will focus on their needs day-to-day. It’s an exciting time as packaging around the world is growing and Australia and New Zealand is very much a part of this growth.”
