XSYS has appointed FERAG Australia as its distributor of flexographic printing plates and platemaking equipment in Australia and New Zealand. Customers in the region will be able to benefit from FERAG’s long history and experience in the graphic arts industry, as the company expands its remit into flexo printing and packaging.
Roy Schoettle, regional VP APAC XSYS, said, “We are very pleased that FERAG will be representing XSYS in this part of the world. The company is well established and a respected supplier in the graphics industry having looked after both countries over many years with its existing portfolio of products. We feel confident that our customers will truly profit from a dedicated company that will focus on their needs day to day. It’s an exciting time as packaging – and indeed XSYS as a leading supplier to this industry – is growing around the world. Australia and New Zealand are very much a part of this growth.”
As the local contact for FERAG conveying, sorting, buffering and processing systems, the newly appointed XSYS distributor is based in Matraville, NSW, Australia. In addition to solutions for the graphics industry and systems for internal material flow, FERAG Australia also distributes packaging machines and palletizing systems from other suppliers. The team works closely with its customers to successfully implement their projects, from initial planning, installation, and commissioning through to operator training and after-sales support. As such, it is a perfect match for XSYS and its innovative solutions and services.
“The opportunity to take on the XSYS portfolio has come at a great time for FERAG, as we continue to move the company forward into new industry segments,” said Philip Batty, who is the managing director of FERAG Australia. “Naturally, our main priorities now are to make sure that existing XSYS customers are well looked after and that the changeover is as seamless as possible. Our team is looking forward to representing this world-class portfolio of flexographic solutions with best-in-class sales, service and technical support.”
FERAG will stock and supply nyloflex flexographic plates, nyloprint letterpress plates as well as nylosolv solvent washout. The agreement came into effect on 24 February 2023.
