Somerville, New Jersey-based Kompac, a manufacturer of UV and aqueous coating systems and products, announces that Australian Graphic Services is the company’s newest authorized distributor for Australia and New Zealand. AGS will be the exclusive agent for Kompac products in those two countries, selling and servicing the full range of Kompac’s coating systems, consumables and parts.
According to Kompac, AGS is a leading provider of services, consumables, equipment sales and spare parts to the printing industry throughout Australia.
To mark the official launch in Australia, AGS will be holding an open-house on March 30-31 at its Melbourne headquarters.
“Kompac products are unlike anything else in the market,” says Ross Gilberthorpe, equipment sales and marketing manager for AGS. “It is a worldwide company based in the U.S.A. that has been in the industry for many years. They have reinvented themselves by creating an entire range of coating systems for both offset and digital printers.”
Gilberthorpe continues: “A lot of printers might need to go from one coating to another, say, aqueous to UV. The time change for this would normally be up to an hour, but with Kompac’s systems it can be done in five minutes. For a digital printer with short runs, that might require different coatings for different jobs, the Kompac coating systems can be changed quickly, saving a lot of time.”
