TRESU appoints Polymark SIA as agents to serve the Baltic region

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

Kolding, Denmark - TRESU Group, the flexo ancillary and machine provider, has appointed Polymark SIA (Stopi?i municipality, Latvia) as agents for Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania.

Polymark is well-known in the region for sales of inks and consumables and as a distributor for Manroland.

Polymark will sell and provide technical support for TRESU ancillary equipment, which includes ink supply systems and chamber doctor blades. Together, these provide the complete logistics for controlled, automatic ink circulation on flexo presses, enabling printers to improve print quality, optimise ink use and increase productivity.

“The addition of Polymark as agents for TRESU Ancillary is another important step in the development of our sales and support network,” said Steen Rasmussen, area sales manager, TRESU Ancillary. “It is a timely appointment as this is a region where the economy is growing and flexo printers are increasingly focused on improving quality and efficiency while reducing waste.”

TRESU and Polymark believe many printers in Baltic region can benefit from retrofitting older flexo presses and finishing lines with TRESU systems that can extend their lives, improve competitiveness and meet today’s market demands. 

Steen Rasmussen comments: “The global trend towards shorter production runs and stricter colour consistency targets expected by packaging buyers has made it essential for converters to automate and control processes as much as possible.”

“In flexo printing, controlled ink logistics is essential for remaining competitive in these situations. Automated cleaning cuts makeready times by hours, for example by performing jobs simultaneously on each print station, as opposed to consecutively. Enclosed supply systems are also the basis for controlling flow rate, pressure and viscosity, assuring unblemished printwork and exact ink densities at faster speeds – in some cases, exceeding 600m/min – without evaporation or splashing.”   

TRESU provides equipment for all flexo printing applications, from narrow-web to corrugated presses. Highlights include the F10 iCon ink supply system, and chamber doctor blades up to six metres wide.  

“This is a great opportunity to introduce our customers to more of what TRESU has to offer,” said Nadezhda Matveeva, general manager, Polymark SIA. “We see more attention oriented towards investment in the ancillaries with converters trying to boost the productivity this way, rather than investing in new machinery. TRESU can offer both, but with the right ancillaries, our customers can save money and at the same time gain in efficiency.” 

Polymark will also support the retrofit of coating units for offset presses which can open new markets for semi-commercial, commercial and publications printers by adding value to products.

“Polymark’s knowledge of the markets and technologies as well as its well-known team will make it a major contributor to our growing sales and support organisation,” Mr. Rasmussen concluded.
