Jet and Screen celebrate 10 year partnership
Jet Technologies and Screen GP are celebrating 10 years of partnership success as the two companies gear up for 2020 with new Screen products.
The partnership came into being when Screen added flexo CTP to its offset platesetter range, and turned to Jet Technologies in ANZ to be its distributor to the label market, a new area for the pioneering innovator.
“Screen GP is renowned for manufacturing and supporting great equipment, but locally our expertise lay in the commercial offset market,” Peter Scott, managing director at Screen GP said. “When talking to label converters in 2009, it quickly became obvious we needed some help, and that is when it all started with Jet Technologies.
“Since then we have combined our strengths to steadily grow our number of satisfied customers with our flexo CTP and inkjet label presses,” Scott continued. “Screen GP is happy with the partnership and we look forward to building on our success over the next 10 years.”
Combining Screen GP’s engineering and technical service with Jet Technologies’ market and application knowledge in the flexographic market, the partnership has been a success, with installations across Australia, and more recently in New Zealand and Indonesia.
When Screen GP launched its inkjet label press – the Truepress Jet L350UV – the partnership went to the next level. Over the years, Jet Technologies has provided substantial input into the features and performance of subsequent models and upgrades.
The L350UV, which Screen GP has just announced will have an upcoming new release, is now recognised as one of the world’s leading inkjet presses for narrow web, with installations all over the world.
“In a world of fast-changing partnerships, it’s refreshing to play a role in a partnership that continues to strengthen over the years and remains focused on customer service,” said Jack Malki, director, Jet Technologies. “The relationship we share with Screen GP is based on absolute trust and a great deal of respect, which is evident to all of our clients who reap the rewards of how seamlessly both of our companies work together.”
