Since mid-2014, Beswick has represented Apex International’s range of products for the printing and packaging industry.
Bruce Beswick, Managing Director of Beswick, stated, ‘Apex anilox products are approved and deployed by all leading machine manufacturers in the flexo, offset and coating industry. We were very happy to add these products to our range.’
Riaan Hopley, who is responsible for the web fed division within Beswick stated, ‘Apex is always at the forefront of new innovations in the flexo printing industry. We recently attended a sales meeting in Hapert, the Netherlands, where we were given technical training on the newest innovations. Among these are: Bellissima DMS, the ultimate in flexographic screening, which delivers a previously unobtainable level of image reproduction for flexo.
‘Apex supplies Carbon Fibre rolls, which have a high rigidity, low deflection and provide increased speed, higher productivity and safer and easier handling. Last but not least, the GTT 2.0 Anilox technology was also presented. GTT has been on the market for almost a decade, however, over the past year, the new version 2.0 was launched. The level of consistency, reproducibility and repeatability has become even better. The patented laser engraving technology, in combination with the constant-beam and the extreme hard ceramic layer are responsible for achieving this.’
Joris Cabri, head of sales at Apex Europe, commented that the cooperation with Beswick is an important one to Apex, ‘Beswick and Apex share the same norms and values when it comes to customer service and providing high quality products. The technical skills of the Beswick team make a difference when it comes to offering a total package of products, service and advice. This year we celebrate our anniversary of working together for five years and I hope we can continue our cooperation for many more years, in the interest of the South Africa printing and converting industry.’
