M Partners, Hackbridge, Surrey, has announced that it has signed an agreement to partner with MGI Technology, the UK company that recently detailed its distribution arrangements for French digital equipment manufacturer MGI Digital Graphic Technology.
The agreement means that M Partners will be able to add the full range of MGI digital printing and finishing equipment to its ever increasing range of high quality print and packaging related products.
Commenting on the addition of MGI equipment, joint managing director Murray Lock said: “We are delighted to be working closely with MGI Technology. The products offer end users a real opportunity to add value to print production. MGI products are not just “photocopier” boxes, they allow printers to differentiate themselves from the ever increasing number of run-of-the-mill digital print producers. The ability, for example, to print onto envelopes, to print 6-page A4 products, or to print onto different substrates such as plastics, are all capabilities that can potentially offer a print business a new and innovative area of production that most digital print businesses cannot even entertain.
“The potential to add value for both the printer and for M Partners is essential. We are certainly not a manufacturer and not a “box shifter”. We must therefore seek specific areas of the digital market place where we, with MGI products, can make a difference and provide a capability that is not always available from other suppliers – something that allows our customers to make money from digital production.”
Commenting on the appointment of M Partners, David Evans, Managing Director of UK distributor MGI Technology, said: “M Partners is exactly the sort of partner that we have been looking for to expand the sales of MGI equipment in the UK. Many people view MGI as the best kept secret in digital print due mainly to its somewhat “chequered” representation history in the UK. We are convinced that by working closely with such high profile businesses as M Partners that we can significantly increase the sales of MGI products to UK print producers.” He added that M Partners were likely to be one of a number of industry partners.
MGI Digital Graphic Technology designs, manufactures and markets a full and innovative range of multi-substrate (paper, plastics and envelopes) four-colour digital presses, as well as a complete line of versatile finishing solutions, including the revolutionary JETvarnish® digital inkjet spot UV coater. Now seen as a key player in the global market, MGI has a portfolio comprised of several thousand customers in a wide range of sectors, including graphic industry professionals, Fortune 1000 companies, government agencies, plastic card manufacturers, silk screeners and photo labs.
In 2010 M Partners took on the management of both sales and service for Mitsubishi Litho Presses in the UK and Ireland. This representation joins established products such as GUK folding and inserting equipment, and Steinemann laminating products.
M Partners offers manufacturers considerable marketing and business expertise across both the printing and packaging sectors and provides high-quality national coverage for sales, support and technical service.
The Joint Managing Directors established M Partners Ltd in 2006 after gaining many years of industry experience in senior management roles at a major press manufacturer and used equipment dealer. They were responsible for corporate and product marketing for prepress, press, post press and service plus operational control for digital, consumables and used equipment divisions.
