Ferrostaal fires up digital offering with MGI
Ferrostaal Australia is substantially expanding its range of digital printing and finishing products following a new deal that sees the company claim the sole distribution rights to the MGI printing products Australia-wide.
With its headquarters in France, and main offices in the US state of Florida and Singapore, MGI has made a name for itself globally for its range of toner and inkjet digital presses, and complete line of finishing solutions.
The company operates in a wide range of industries, including commercial printers, plastic card manufacturers, government agencies, packaging firms, in-plant printers, newspaper printers, photo printers/labs and book printers.
The company is known for its Meteor series of multi-substrate digital presses, JETvarnish 3D inkjet spot UV coater, JETcard 3D inkjet card factory, UVarnish flood UV coater and PressCard Pro/PunchCard Pro laminating and die cutting solutions for the plastic card market.
“The addition of the MGI product range strengthens our existing product line-up and clearly establishes Ferrostaal as a global leader in providing solutions to the printing industry,” says Markus Haefeli (pictured), Ferrostaal Australia’s CEO. “The MGI print solutions allow us to build on our existing customer relationships to offer alternative solutions at a time when added value is top-of-mind.”
Michael Abergel, Executive Vice President and Managing Director for MGI USA, says that the deal with Ferrostaal Australia will make good use of the local supplier’s standing in the Australian market.
“We are very excited to partner with Ferrostaal for the Australia/New Zealand market,” says Abergel. “Their breadth of experience with offset printing, packaging and bindery technologies, along with their strong customer relationships and technical support, is the perfect complement to our digital printing and finishing solutions. We look forward to a mutually successful relationship.”
