February 22, 2010

Forpack International Trade now distributing Rotocontrol’s inspection, slitting, rewinding and diecutting equipment throughout South and Central America.

Rotocontrol has retained Forpack International Trade to distribute its products in Central and South America. Just last week the company announced a distribution agreement in Spain. Rotocontrol, based in Ahrensberg, Germany, manufactures inspection, slitting, rewinding and diecutting machines for the narrow web industry.

“After spending two weeks in Brazil and Chile visiting converters, I witnessed firsthand the exciting demand for finishing machines,” says Ralph Beier, Rotocontrol’s international sales manager. "I am convinced that Forpack will do an outstanding job.”

Orlando Esteves, managing director of Forpack, adds: "Latin America is a quickly growing market, with a high demand for superior quality and reliable finishing machine technology. After monitoring activity generated from Rotocontrol over the last year, we were convinced the line was a perfect fit for our suite of conversion product.”

Forpack, based in São Paulo, Brazil, also distributes narrow and wide web flexo presses, and bag-making machines.
