Mark Andy has announced the unveiling of the company’s most recently updated showroom. Established in 1993 in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England, Mark Andy UK Ltd. was the St. Louis, MO, USA-based press manufacturer’s first international sales and service location. Since opening, the company has enjoyed great success throughout the UK and nearby countries with more than 300 installations. The showroom and service center is a key location for converters to view the latest technologies from Mark Andy and Rotoflex.
The newly opened showroom currently features two Mark Andy Performance Series machines - a P3 10" (250mm) and a P7 17" (430mm) - as well as a Rotoflex VSI 330. The Mark Andy presses are equipped with the Performance Series innovative and award-winning print platform, as well as a variety of accessories including rotary screen, foil units, and lamination solutions. The Performance Series offers visitors the opportunity to view the first in-line narrow web flexo machines certified for HD Flexo. The Rotoflex VSI, with Genesis advanced control system and eDrive 2.0, demonstrates an integrated drive and motion platform for managing sensitive web tension and material movement from unwind to rewind.
The UK location is staffed by a complete team of print technicians, sales and customer support personnel to provide access to anything a converter may need, from maximizing existing equipment, reviewing new equipment and technology, solving workflow and application challenges or gaining quick access to parts and service.
“The UK showroom is an exciting opportunity for leading converters to experience our award winning equipment in action,” says Mike Russell, international sales director for Mark Andy. “The technologies we are able to demonstrate on-site, as well as the capable support staff, make it an ideal showplace for visitors from around the world.”
