Based in Lodz, Scorpio is a distributor of machines and materials for the graphic arts industry in Poland, and will offer full sales and support for Kompac’s complete line of sheet-fed and roll-to-roll coating technology. The cooperation between the companies results from Kompac’s growth strategy in Europe, and Scorpio’s plans to broaden its offering in the post-press segment.
Krzysztof Pisera, business development director at Scorpio, said: ‘We see considerable potential for the roll-to-roll and spot coaters in our area, and Kompac’s coating solutions fit these expectations well. This partnership will allow us to provide our customers direct access to the latest UV and aqueous coating technology for off-line and online finishing production in the graphic arts industry.’
Thomas Hayes, Kompac Technologies president, added: ‘The appointment of Scorpio will greatly enhance access to these systems in Europe, as they have an extensive background in offset, flexography, and digital printing – which is perfect for Kompac’s priming and coating solutions. Its extensive knowledge and history within the print industry was a key factor in the decision-making process and we believe that they will be a valuable partner within our distribution network.
