Esterlam International Doctor Blades is delighted to announce a new sales partnership with Pamarco Global Graphics.
Following a recent visit to America, the team from the UK have forged a brand new partnership with printing giant Pamarco of Roselle, New Jersey, which will enable their Doctor Blades to reach new markets and provide new global opportunities.
“This is quite ground breaking,” says John Hailey Esterlam Managing Director. “Creating another key partnership with one of the industry’s leading providers of proven, superior technology solutions for the printing, packaging and converting industries worldwide, means we can increase our growing market share in America.”
“Pamarco’s key expertise, especially within the corrugated and offset printing processes, will be a clear asset” added Esterlam Director Neil Hailey. “With this partner collaboration we are now able to offer a complete service package.”
Pamarco joins Esterlam along with long standing partner All Printing Resources (APR) Inc. in Glendale Heights, Illinois, USA, who are leading edge providers in the Flexographic industry “Having these two, highly prestigious companies on board really strengthens our penetration opportunities in the US,” added John.
Since creating the first concept of synthetic doctor blades in the early 1970s, Esterlam have more than 30 years’ experience in doctor blade innovation and design. Their product range has grown to include everything needed to improve printing and coating processes to expand potential markets or simply improve operator safety. They strive to optimise manufacturing procedures and offer a complete doctor blade programme tailored to improvement in press performance and profitability.
Their history and expertise in the industry has led to a worldwide presence through their extensive network of technical agents, who can supply their doctor blade products with full technical support globally. As a result, they work successfully with leading machinery OEMs, corporations and blue-chip companies worldwide.
Pamarco’s Flexo Division Vice President, John Rastetter feels the new partnership will greatly enhance Pamarco’s current leading product range. “We are very excited to have this significant opportunity to provide Esterlam Doctor Blades to our customers enabling them to produce better products. Said John. “We are very pleased therefore to be associated with a world leader in Doctor Blades – their premier blades product is a real strength. We cannot wait to start distributing the Esterlam blades to our customer base.”
Earlier this year, the company have also employed the services of local Plymouth marketing and design agency Mykreative, who will assist in the world-wide branding of Esterlam.
