IGT and Testprint BV Announce Agreement
AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands—IGT Testing Systems and Testprint BV announced that they have reached an agreement for international cooperation. This agreement promises to offer a complete product range, a high level of product expertise, and technical support to the international market. The two companies, active in the paper, ink, and printing industries, first formed an alliance during the period of 1966-1994, when each company represented the other’s product line in different parts of the world.
After both companies were placed under new ownership, the alliance was discontinued, and both IGT Testing Systems and Testprint concentrated independently on their own expertise and markets. But now, due to the globalization and liberalization of international trade in the markets served by both companies, they believe that their clients can greatly benefit from the synergy which will be the result of uniting forces again.
“We feel that the combined product range and our specific expertise in the application of methods will offer a tremendous advantage to our joined customer base,” says Wilco de Groot, IGT Testing Systems. “In addition to that, our organizations can make more efficient use of human and material resources which will translate in meeting market demands faster and more cost effectively while safeguarding high quality.”
“We used the past decade to develop a number of innovative test systems for use in the manufacture of printing ink, paper, and raw materials,” says Sander Lenten, Testprint BV. “Uniting forces with IGT again was a logical choice, especially because our portfolio of products and expertise has become more complementary than ever before. The synergetic advantage of our cooperation lies in the fact that we offer one window for technical support and service for a wide range of products. I am sure that our customers will appreciate the results of this exciting combination.”
