Mark Andy has entered into a distribution partnership with Bulgaria’s GraphTech for its narrow and mid web equipment for label and packaging applications.

The partnership strengthens the US-based manufacturer’s European presence, whilst for GraphTech it furthers its commitment to delivering, ‘the best value to the customers and help them develop and grow their businesses.’

GraphTech owner Ivan Ivanov said, ‘We were researching and investigating the local market needs and demand for quite some years and have a very clear view of it as of today. On the other hand, finding the best possible OEM to partner with is not an easy task. There are so many aspects influencing this decision. Our commitment to partner with Mark Andy is not random or accidental.

‘We strongly believe that they currently hold the best technology in flexo as well as in digital hybrid, and based on their history of innovators, we expect this manufacturer to have a leading role in the industry for years to come.’

He continued, ‘We are very proud and delighted that Mark Andy accepted us into its family and put its trust in us. Building an ‘A Team’ in the industry always involves three sides – OEM, distributor and customer. I am confident that we are now on the right track together.’
