Aquaflex Appoints LPP Limited as Agent
DUNCANSVILLE, PA, USA - Aquaflex has taken an important step on the road to global product sales with the selection of an authorized sales agent for the UK and Ireland.
The US-based provider of flexographic press solutions announced today the appointment of LPP Limited of Manchester, England. LPP will represent all Aquaflex products in the UK and Ireland, as well as provide product service and parts.
This represents a milestone for Aquaflex, which, prior to its recent acquisition by the F.L. Smithe Machine Co., faced a very uncertain future. "The rebirth of Aquaflex is an exciting thing to witness," said Stuart Roberts, Aquaflex VP of International Sales. "In just over a year we have made tremendous strides in the US. Our customers are returning to us and sales are very strong due to product innovations and world-class service.
This is a formula for success we intend to take worldwide."
The principals of LPP, Les Bradley and Fred Osborne, have spent over 20 years in narrow-web printing equipment sales and service, and have extensive experience with the Aquaflex line.
"Aquaflex has always been a respected name," said Fred Osborne. "They went through a rough patch, but the product remained strong. Since F.L. Smithe took control, it's been nothing but good news. Now, they're taking that success and branching out in Europe and Asia. They are building a strong support base to expand product sales and service globally."
"Aquaflex has done an amazing turnaround," Les Bradley added. "There is a new energy in the company and a new determination to be an industry leader. We're looking forward to joining Aquaflex at LabelExpo Europe, and to introducing the new Aquaflex to the European label and packaging markets."
