MacDermid names Coast Paper as Canadian distributor

September 21, 2010

Coast will represent MacDermid’s full line of flexo photopolymer plate products throughout the Canadian print market.

MacDermid Printing Solutions has appointed Coast Paper, a division of PaperlinX Canada Ltd., to be the distributor of its flexographic photopolymer plate products and equipment in Canada.

MacDermid offers a wide range of plate products, including analog and digital printing plates. The portfolio includes dual processing plates, which can be processed either in a solvent system or thermally using MacDermid’s Lava processor. Another technology recently introduced is the Lux platemaking process, which enables the platemaker to produce a digital plate with flat-top dots, printing smoother vignettes with an expanded gamut.

“The timing of MacDermid and Coast Paper working together in Canada is excellent. Over the last two years, MacDermid has completely refreshed its sheet product line making it the broadest and most updated product line in the industry,” says Scot Benson, vice president of MacDermid.

“We have built our reputation in conjunction with leading technology providers. The addition of MacDermid’s innovative products will provide Coast Paper the opportunity to address all flexographic plate markets benefiting from MacDermid’s reputation in the marketplace,” says Terry Pitchford, VP operations for PaperlinX Canada.

MacDermid Printing Solutions is based in Atlanta, GA, USA. Coast Paper is headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
