MGI Technology, the UK distributor for French manufacturer MGI S.A., has announced an agreement with Agfa Graphics to distribute its range of digital printers in the UK and Ireland. Agfa already distributes MGI products in a number of European countries including Switzerland, where in 2012 Agfa Switzerland was awarded the MGI EMEA Distributor of the Year trophy.
Joergen Vad, Agfa Graphics Managing Director, UK and Ireland, said: “Our experience shows that the MGI portfolio is very complimentary to our own workflow and CtP products, so now with access to MGI’s proven digital printers it means we can offer even more added value for our customers.”
The agreement covers the full range of MGI equipment including the popular Meteor DP8700 XL versatile digital printer and the unique JETvarnish 3D, which takes digital spot UV coating to a new dimension, featuring increased throughput for flat spot UV jobs and amazing 3D raised effects.
Meanwhile, MGI will use its Ipex press conference to further discuss its strategic alliance with Konica Minolta, which covers mainly technology with MGI using Konica Minolta print engines on an OEM basis. MGI has also hinted that it will be previewing a new product lineup of digital printing and finishing solutions.
