JM Heaford Appoints New Agent in Colombia to Drive Growth in Labels and Packaging

Press release from the issuing company

Chemisolutions will offer ongoing support and next-generation technology to wider market

Manchester, UK – JM Heaford, industry-leading supplier of proofing and mounting solutions for the tag and label, flexible packaging, corrugated and gravure markets, has appointed a new agent for Colombia. Chemisolutions SAS (https://chemisolutions.com.co) has taken over responsibility for sales and support of Heaford mounters and proofers for the Colombian flexible packaging, narrow web and corrugated industries.

With sales of Heaford mounters and proofers into Colombia since the 1980s, JM Heaford has a large install base in the region across a range of different applications and is widely recognized as the market leader, according to Nick Vindel, Latin American Sales Manager with JM Heaford. This appointment, he says, comes at a crucial time in terms of local industry trends and Heaford’s own strategic product development:

“Colombia is a large and diverse market, spread over a considerable territory. It calls for an agent with a great track record of technical competence and a strong sales network across all in the major centres. We feel that Chemisolutions is the right company to boost market penetration while continuing to service the needs of existing customers and drive sales forward in this important market,” explains Vindel.

Chemisolutions was established in 2010 with its headquarters in the capital Bogota. It represents many leading brands in the flexographic market, including Uteco, Harper, IST, Vetaphone and Dupont. Owner and founder Jose Noel Gomez is excited to add JM Heaford to his impressive list of principals. “JM Heaford is not simply the global leader in mounting and proofing solutions but, more specifically to this region, the Heaford brand has maintained its reputation here in Colombia as a by-word for quality and consistency over decades. The company is a valued provider of innovative and competitive solutions to the Colombian flexographic sector, which itself is widely recognised for high quality, both at a regional level and beyond, counting among its members many printers who have achieved considerable success on the world stage.”

“Chemisolutions has a very progressive and proactive technical sales department headed by Jose Noel Gomez,” according to Vindel. “The company’s strategy is to funnel its knowledge and expertise into supporting customers, both in their day-to-day needs and for the longer term by helping them improve the efficiency of their mounting operations and production workflow. Jose has been active in the market for more than 28 years and is well known and respected by all, not only among the converters who already have Heaford equipment, but also in the flexible packaging and label markets where we aim to grow our sales.”
