“Agfa Graphics is proud to extend its relationship in North America with MGI and offer innovative and technically advanced solutions to our customer base,” said Peter Wilkens, president of Agfa Graphics North America. “MGI’s product line perfectly complements our portfolio while giving our customers ways to efficiently produce a wide range of high quality products and open new revenue streams.”
The Agfa-MGI association began in 2010 with Agfa Switzerland, followed by other Agfa branches across Europe and in Australia. In North America, Agfa Graphics is the only national MGI distributor.
“We are very proud to name Agfa Graphics as our new distribution partner here in the US. We have a very long and successful history with Agfa Graphics and are very confident that this partnership will not be any different. We are looking forward to having a true nationwide sales and service organization, with whom market synergies run very deep, and believe that this strategic fortification of our presence in the U.S. will be mutually beneficial for both companies,” said Michael Abergel, executive vice president of MGI.
The Agfa Graphics portfolio now includes such MGI products as the Meteor DP8700 XL+, the JETvarnish, the iFOIL and other products.
