GIDUE S.p.a., a manufacturer of label and packaging presses headquartered in Turate, Italy, has appointed KPG Corporation and KPG Europe as its agents for the USA and UK, respectively. KPG is based in the USA in Vermont and in the UK in Peterborough and in Lincolnshire. The KPG companies are independent representatives of Ko-Pack presses in their markets.
According to Glenn Miller, managing director of KPG Europe, “Our partnership with GIDUE represents an exciting opportunity for our two organizations to offer customers the very latest printing and converting technologies, combined with vast experience of specialist applications. We are joining GIDUE just as a range of offset presses is being launched by the company. KPG is confident that together, we can meet the challenge of providing customers with the widest possible choice of printing solutions and converting options.”
“We look at it as expanding our market,” says John Warwick, president of KPG Corporation. “A Ko-Pack press is a central impression drum letterpress, and GIDUE manufactures inline flexo, gravure, offset, and screen combination presses. There are opportunities for all of these products.”
Federico d’Annunzio, GIDUE’s managing director, says that the partnership with KPG “will strengthen our position in a constantly changing market place, with changing demands requiring even higher standards of printing performance coupled with cost effective production.”
