Muller Martini to Represent Sitma Equipment Within the United States
HAUPPAUGE, NY—August 13, 2012—Finishing equipment manufacturers Muller Martini and Sitma USA have signed a business cooperation agreement whereby their customers will benefit from a wide range of systems for inserting and single copy film wrapping for the commercial printing and newspaper markets.
Sitma’s machines, capable of commercial inserting and onserting, boast highly innovative film and paper wrapping technology that serves as a benchmark for high-speed applications. The machines’ design allows for products of variable sizes to be processed simultaneously, making them ideal systems for co-mail, wrapping and personalization.
In addition to being eco-friendly, film wrapping provides a high level of protection in transport and ensures that printed products, along with inserts, coupons and dimensional promotions, reach addressees in excellent quality. This collaboration between Muller Martini and Sitma USA enables them to extend their range of flexible production systems equipped with intelligent automation, allowing customers to significantly optimize the use of their machines, while providing a higher level of investment security.
Muller Martini will market the machines, capable of both inline and offline applications, with Sitma USA handling all installation, maintenance, parts, and technical support.
The agreement represents a highly synergistic pairing of two global leaders with European roots and a solid U.S. client base encompassing similar customers and technology. Graphic arts decision-makers are encouraged to visit Muller Martini’s Booth #2017 at GRAPH EXPO 2012 to meet and consult with Sitma representatives and product specialists.
