DuPont Cyrel extends distribution agreement with Pitman

April 25, 2011

The companies will expand their market reach, and Pitman will combine sales and technical teams for Cyrel support.

DuPont Packaging Graphics and Pitman, an Agfa company and supplier of prepress, industrial inkjet, pressroom and packaging printing products and systems, have signed a distribution agreement for the DuPont Cyrel portfolio of flexographic products in the United States. As a result of the agreement, DuPont and Pitman are extending their market reach and Pitman is combining sales and technical specialist resources to more effectively support Cyrel customers.

“Pitman is a distribution powerhouse in printing and has been strengthened with the resources Agfa Graphics has added since the acquisition,” says Wendy Andrushko, North American sales director – DuPont Packaging Graphics. “Working together, DuPont, Pitman and Agfa offer our Cyrel customers a win-win with superior products, service and support.”

Pitman has been a US distributor for Cyrel and Cyrel FAST products for over 35 years, and was acquired by Agfa Graphics in August 2010.

“We are pleased to extend our relationship with DuPont and look forward to future success as we expand DuPont’s market reach and penetration,” says Peter Wilkens, president of Agfa Graphics. “We are known for our best-in-class packaging product portfolio. Our goal is to deliver complete integrated solutions that maximize productivity and therefore, profitability for customers who are always striving for workflow improvements.”

Agfa Graphics offers consumables, hardware, software and services for production workflow, design and color management to the graphic communication industry. The Company's CtP and digital proofing systems have positioned it as a worldwide leader in the commercial printing and packaging industries as well as newspaper publishing markets.
