Thursday, September 06, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Ferrostaal announced it has named Montreal-based KBR Graphics Canada as the newest dealer in its growing capital equipment sales and service network.  KBR sells and services digital and offset printing presses and finishing equipment throughout Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces.

KBR Graphics today begins selling and servicing the full line of RYOBI printing presses in all of its markets.  With local sales and service offices in the Greater Toronto Area, Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec City, KBR is one of the largest printing equipment dealers in North America.  The addition of KBR completes Ferrostaal’s build-out of its Canadian dealer network.

“KBR is a widely respected and well-run business,” said John Torrey, president and CEO of Houston-based Ferrostaal Equipment Solutions North America.  “They are also an important addition to our local network.  KBR brings strong relationships and experience, deep technical support and excellent customer service to commercial printers and corporate/government in-plant printers in its markets.”

“We were searching for a strong, international partner to help us bring new, cost-efficient digital and offset print technologies to our customers,” said Karl Belafi, Jr., vice president-sales, KBR Graphics.  “We found that partner in Ferrostaal, which has been serving printers worldwide for the last 50 years.”

“With their exclusive access to the full-line of RYOBI presses and other top technology offerings, KBR can be an ever-stronger supplier and advisor to our customers,” Belafi said.

KBR has sales and service staff in the Greater Toronto Area, which ranks among North America’s Top 5 print markets.  KBR also has bilingual sales and service staff in Montreal, Canada’s second largest print market.  Ontario and Quebec accounted for more than 80% of Canada’s C$8 billion-plus print shipments in 2011, according to the Canadian Printing Industries Association.

Ferrostaal has one of the largest printing equipment teams in North America with more than 100 sales and service professionals and 18 authorized dealers.  Also in Canada, Winnipeg-based Canadian Printing Equipment is responsible for sales and service from British Columbia to Manitoba.

KBR Graphics is one of Canada’s largest digital and offset printing equipment sales and service companies.  It provides a broad range of printing and finishing equipment, parts and supplies.  Equipment brands in its portfolio include MGI, Ryobi, Standard Horizon, Perfecta and Challenge.

Karl Belafi, Sr. founded the company in 1977.  It has grown to become one of Canada’s largest dealers by providing a broad range of equipment, strong technical service and highly personalized customer support.  Today, the company is operated by Karl Belafi, Jr., and Kevin Belafi.  For KBR’s Toronto office, call 416-292-8600.  For KBR’s Montreal office, call 514-739-5656.  The company’s website is www.kbrgraphics.com.
