KTI was looking for a way to increase its product offerings to its current customer base, and Monomatic provided the perfect opportunity. Monomatic has been around since the 1950s, with a strong presence in Europe, and offers products very similar to KTI’s current product line. The largest differences between the two product lines are size, speed and customizable options.
KTI offers nonstop unwinds and rewinds with roll diameters up to 50" (1270mm), web widths up to 72" (1829mm) and speeds up to 1, 000 fpm (305 m/m). Monomatic equipment goes beyond that scope with roll diameters up to 59" (1500mm), web widths up to 98" (2500mm) and speeds of up to 3, 280 fpm (1,000 m/m). Monomatic equipment also offers customers a more customizable product for custom applications, in addition to the standard KTI product lines currently available.
John Mitchell, international sales manager for KTI, will take on the role of North American sales manager for the Monomatic equipment through KTI. In addition, Monomatic will represent and sell the KTI product line throughout Europe, helping both companies expand their coverage and build their businesses.
KTI has been looking for a way to increase its presence in Europe for the past few years, and the alliance with Monomatic will help to accomplish this while also providing a wider customer base in North America with the sales of Monomatic equipment.
