WILMINGTON, MA—May 8, 2008—QuadTech and Prism announce today an expansive partnership agreement throughout North America and Europe. QuadTech, the world’s leader in press controls, will resell the Prism QTMS production management system through its direct sales organization as part of a complete QuadTech offering. The QuadTech and QTMS offerings complement each other for an efficient and profitable production environment for their customers. All QTMS products including web, sheetfed, packaging, gravure, and finishing counting systems, WIP and pallet tracking, insert and roll tracking, and management consoles are available direct through QuadTech.
“QuadTech has leveraged the knowledge gained from our printing heritage to be a pre- eminent designer and manufacturer of automated control systems,” said Karl Fritchen, President of QuadTech. “Prism QTMS adds counting accuracy and production workflow control to our product line for a complete production efficiency solution for our customers.”
QuadTech and Prism share a similar marketplace throughout the world and this partnership is the first step at leveraging a synergy in products and marketing that ultimately delivers a more complete solution to their customers.
