Agfa UK has confirmed that its new Rugby showroom will play host to all the the latest Kongsberg cutting tables that suit its wide-format solutions.
The new 3500sqft Agfa Inkjet Competence Centre, set to be officially opened across 8 – 9 July, will showcase the Kongsberg C60 next to Agfa’s latest wide-format inkjet printers, presses and workflow suite. Furthermore Kongsberg PCS, based close by in Solihull, will use the Rugby facility as its own local showroom.
‘The new arrangement with Kongsberg PCS perfectly complements our added value propositions,’ said Bobby Grauf, Agfa inkjet sales manager for the UK and Ireland. ‘Kongsberg PCS is undoubtably the market leader in digital cutting solutions. Being able to demonstrate Kongsberg cutting tables live in Rugby makes it so much easier for our customer to select the right printing and finishing solutions to suit their business.
‘Agfa’s global headquarters in Belgium and Canada are already demonstrating the seamless link between Agfa and Kongsberg systems, and now we can do the same much closer to home. Our aim is to help our customers navigate through the industry’s complex range of wide-format kit, so offering complementary products and services will make life much easier for them. We are thrilled to partner with Kongsberg PCS for the UK graphics market.’
Melanie Fox, sales manager UK and Ireland at Kongsberg PCS, added, ‘This is one of the first new reseller partnerships Kongsberg will enter since becoming a standalone company in April 2021, and we’re delighted that Agfa will be making our entire range of cutting systems, tools and automation solutions available to its customer base.
‘At Kongsberg, we have a passion for fusing technology and creativity to deliver the most robust and reliable digital cutting solutions. Kongsberg PCS and Agfa customers share a common demand for premium products that deliver optimum performance, and this new partnership will increase the availability of our innovative solutions for more customers across the UK. We are looking forward to kickstarting our new relationship with Agfa at the imminent showroom launch, where one of our state-of-the-art Kongsberg C series tables will be proudly displayed and available for customer demonstrations.’
