Kompac Technologies celebrates 30 years in business

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Kompac Technologies, LLC, the leading manufacturer and supplier of an extensive line of products to satisfy the needs of the graphic arts industry, is excited to celebrate their 30th Year in Business.

For more than 20 years Kompac Dampening Systems and products were manufactured and distributed as a part of the global pressroom chemistry company, Varn International.  Many of you may have known their dampening systems as the "Varn System" or the "Varn Kompac" and most as the "Kompac Automatic Dampening System" but one thing is certain, Kompac has always been there with integrity and consistency.

In 1980 the first Kompac Dampening System was installed on an AB Dick 360. Since then Kompac has expanded their product line to include more than 150 models from popular press manufactures; AB Dick, Ryobi, Hamada, Multigraphics, Adast, Heidelberg, Fuji, Shinohara, Goss and more. Now, 30 Years and more than 100,000 dampening systems later, Kompac is the #1 retrofit dampening system in the world.

In 2006 the Kompac operation was acquired by two long-standing Kompac Executives and was re-branded Kompac Technologies, LLC.  Later that year the Kompac Kwik Finish Coating & Curing System was introduced. Since then the Kwik Finish has quickly become the coater of choice for digital and offset printers. The Kwik Finish is the only offline coating system that can flood and spot coat as well as apply UV, aqueous, primer and specialty coatings to a wide variety of paper & plastics. Thin substrates, No Problem! Whether digital output or offset, each job will have the visual appeal, lasting durability, protection and rub resistant finish that your customers expect!
