“The Korean labels and packaging market is one of the fastest growing in Asia,” states Bent Serritslev, Xeikon’s general manager Asia, Digital Solutions. “To date, we have successfully installed a large number of Xeikon dry toner based presses, predominantly in the label field and serviced the customer base direct from the HQ in Belgium, with both services and consumables. However, with the dynamics changing, we have decided to play a much more active role in in South Korea. To do that effectively, we wanted to work with local expertise to supply quality services, readily available spare parts and consumables.”
He adds that a more accessible presence in South Korea will make it easier for current and future customers to acquire and operate Xeikon digital presses.
“We have found a strong partner with S&I Systems Co Ltd,” he concludes. “It has a long and positive track record of servicing the Korean printing industry and jointly, Xeikon and S&I, expect to be a major digital player in South Korea.”
JK Yoon, S&I Systems' CEO, comments, “We are delighted to represent Xeikon, and we look forward to responsively servicing and supporting local operations as they focus on consistently delivering high quality results.”
