Press release from the issuing company
Hod-Hasharon, Israel, January 10, 2007 - Advanced Vision Technology (AVT), a leader in automatic inspection solutions for printing applications, announced today the signing of a distribution agreement with Nilpeter China. This agreement was established to support AVT's growth in the Chinese market, particularly targeting the label and narrow web sectors.
Nilpeter is a world leading manufacturer of high performance narrow web presses. Its combined press solution that integrates flexo, gravure and offset technology is recognized as the best-of-class in the industry. Nilpeter launched its China operation in 2004, with offices in Shanghai and Shenzhen. From the very first opening day, Nilpeter China has been aiming to provide a total solution to its customers, in addition to advanced presses.
"Eager to improve print quality and reduce waste, our customers were seeking advanced technologies to meet these challenges," said Ramon Lee, Nilpeter China's General Manager. "AVT's fault-free, 100% automatic inspection platform was found to be the best, field-proven solution."
"The agreement with Nilpeter China follows the market cooperation between our companies in the last months," said Gal Shamri, Vice President of Marketing, AVT Ltd. "It is an additional step to the appointment of Mr. William Bai to the position of General Manager of the AVT Representative Office in China two years ago, and supports our strategy to be a leading supplier of Automatic Inspection Solutions to printers all over China. With Nilpeter China as our partners we can better meet the specific needs of the quality-driven Chinese market,” added Mr. Shamri.
China has been a fast growing market for AVT for several years now, with leading customers in the flexible packaging, cigarette packaging and label printing markets, for both wide and narrow web applications. The representation agreement with Nilpeter China is one of AVT's recent strategic moves to further establish its presence in this high-potential territory.
