CreaseStream and DataBind Announce New North American Distributorship Collaboration
LUTTERWORTH, England — September 16, 2016 — CreaseStream has announced a new exclusive distribution partnership with DataBind Corp. for North America, officially launching at Graph Expo, held this year at the Orange County Exhibition Centre - North, in Orlando, Fla., from Sept. 25-28. CreaseStream machines were specifically developed for the digital sector of the printing industry by UK creasing specialists Tech-ni-Fold Ltd, and set up as a separate company in 2011.
CreaseStream Owner Graham Harris explains, "DataBind impressed me with their knowledge of print finishing and also in knowing exactly how our unique range of stand-alone creasing machines would fit in alongside their established products. Not only do they have an extensive reach into US dealership channels, they also share a similar passion and vision to bring their customers the best solutions in the market."
Connecticut-based DataBind will firstly focus on distributing the established CreaseStream mini-series of machines, ranging from a standard manual version that is guaranteed to output up to six times faster than traditional pull down handle and foot pedal creasers, through to a fully automatic version that caters for longer print runs. These well designed solutions are ideal for processing greeting cards, menus, book covers, leaflets, brochures, tear off order forms and vouchers, etc., and will fit into a niche' area of the market where little else exists.
Jon Gasperini, VP of North American sales at DataBind, shares, “We are very excited to include CreaseStream’s fine products to our finishing solutions. They have developed easy to use, innovative creasing machines that are far superior to traditional ways of desktop creasing. CreaseStream’s machines put high speed, high quality creasing within the reach of any digital printer, in-plant or school! As another European manufacturer of the highest quality machines, their creasers will complement our product line and maximize profits for our customers.”
DataBind is the exclusive North American Distributor for Renz Punching and Binding Systems. It has over 50 years of experience in the finishing equipment and supplies market and manufacture the highest quality cut wire and plastic spiral at its plant in Connecticut.
During Graph Expo, the CreaseStream products will be part of an exciting array of DataBind solutions that also include UK based Vivid Laminating Technology. Harris concludes, "We will be in great company and part of a world-class offering, we feel privileged to have this platform to take CreaseStream to the next level and look forward to a fruitful partnership with DataBind."
