Glunz & Jensen Opens Second Flexo Center in U.S. with Latest Platemaking Gear
RINGSTED, Denmark—December 18, 2015—In November 2015, Glunz & Jensen opened its first Flexo Center in Rosate (Milan) Italy, and is announcing the opening of its second Flexo Center—this time for the Americas market—located in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.
The U.S. Flexo Center contains a fully equipped demo center, featuring the latest platemaking equipment for narrow- and wide-web applications, including exposure units, processing/washout systems, dryers and light finishers, plate thickness measuring tables and plate mounting systems. The U.S. Flexo Center not only serves as a place for demonstrations, but it also provides support and product training for customers.
The U.S. Flexo Center will be further expanded to incorporate a demonstration and training center for Glunz & Jensen's offset platemaking products.
"We are ready to support the American flexo industry with a center for innovation, support and customer training," said Keld Thorsen, CEO at Glunz & Jensen. "Our newest center will enable the American customers to explore our integrated systems and automated solutions. We would like our customers to discover how our processing expertise really adds value for them."
Frank Newman, general manager at Glunz & Jensen Americas, also noted, "Our new Flexo Center here in Quakertown will be the center of attention for flexo platemaking innovation and product adaption. Innovation comes from the close dialogue and cooperation with our customers. Our new Flexo Center will become a tool enabling our plate partners and dealers to conduct testing and demonstrations which will help them to further adapt and optimize our products to the needs of their customers."
Two of Glunz & Jensen’s latest products are the Flex-in-One compact all-in-one unit for water wash flexo plates, and the FlexScanner which scans sleeves and adaptors for low/high areas, enabling trade shops and packaging printers to take full control of product quality, before going to press. Both products offer a fast return on investment and provide ease of mind for customers.
