March 2017 – Somerville, NJ, USA – Kompac, manufacturer and supplier of an extensive line of UV/aqueous coating systems and products, announces the addition of Australian Graphic Servicing (AGS) to their worldwide network of authorized Kompac dealers. AGS will be the exclusive agent for Kompac products in Australia and New Zealand, selling and servicing the full range of Kompac UV/aqueous coating systems, consumables, and parts.
Melbourne-based, AGS is a leading provider of services, consumables, equipment sales and spare parts to the printing industry throughout Australia. Peter Farmer, Director of International Sales for Kompac says, “We believe that AGS is the ideal partner for Kompac. AGS is a service based company, which is exactly what we were looking for. They can develop and support the Kompac range of equipment and distribute our spare parts throughout Australia.”
To mark the official launch in Australia, AGS will be holding an open-house on March 30-31, where they will be demonstrating the EZ Koat 20 Plus. With products available for sheets or web, Kompac’s coating and curing systems provide a quick and easy way to apply UV, aqueous, primer & specialty coatings to a wide variety of substrates including those that are digitally printed. Ross Gilberthorpe, Equipment Sales and Marketing Manager for AGS, says “Kompac products are unlike anything else in the market. It is a worldwide company based in the USA 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.”
“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” says Gilberthorpe.
“Consistency and quality when coating is important, and this is what sets Kompac apart,” says Gilberthorpe.
