Under the agreement, Punch Graphix will be the exclusive manufacturer of the :Polaris and :Advantage CtP platforms. Agfa will be the sole marketing and sales channel for :Polaris and :Advantage.

"We have secured for them a unique combination of manufacturing excellence, innovation power and market leadership so we can continue to offer dedicated newspaper CtP in tandem with workflow software and offset plates. It's the total systems offering and good customer service that have made us a leader." "Over the past 10 years we have achieved remarkable business growth together with our partners from Agfa," said Piet de Paepe, general manager Punch Graphix Prepress Belgium.

Our swiftness to react to real market needs is definitely the key to success."
