In November 2015, Glunz & Jensen opened their first Flexo Centre in Rosate (Milan) Italy, and now they announce the opening of their second Flexo Centre – this time for the Americas market – located in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, USA.
The USA Flexo Centre contains a fully equipped demo centre, 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 USA Flexo Centre not only serves as a place for demonstrations, but it also provides support and product training for customers.
The USA Flexo Centre will be further expanded to incorporate a demonstration and training centre for Glunz & Jensen´s offset platemaking products.
Keld Thorsen, CEO at Glunz & Jensen:
“We are ready to support the American flexo industry with a centre for innovation, support and customer training. Our newest centre 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:
“Our new Flexo Centre here in Quakertown will be the centre of attention for flexo platemaking innovation and product adaption. Innovation comes from the close dialogue and cooperation with our customers. Our new Flexo Centre will become a tool enabling our plate partners and dealers to conduct testing and demonstrations which will help them to further adapt and optimise 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.
