Aussie manufacturer reaches Europe

Trimatt Systems products will now be sold in European markets, following a deal with Leeds-based distributor CyanX.

Trimatt Systems is an Australian manufacturer of specialised and purpose-built finishing equipment for a range of post-press value-added tasks, with a focus on machinery producing personalised plastic cards: membership cards, ID cards, SIM cards packing and fulfillment.

Matt Johnson, managing director, Trimatt Systems says, “CyanX will be distributing the CardLine Series of products, and it is the exclusive distributor in Europe.

“Representatives from CyanX have made several trips to our factory and had training, attending installation sites in Indonesia and China, and are well set. They recently secured a deal for the first Trimatt system in Europe, the new Trimatt FoldLine, which is a finishing machine for feeding, gluing, attaching and plough folding.

“Our business plan was to develop a range of products for the local market, ensuring that we had a reliable platform in Australia, and now we are looking for homes in markets overseas. We have more than 100 installations in Australia, of various configurations.

“We have ramped up significantly, and have been successful in Asia, to the point where half of our business is now exports.”

The company was founded in 2005, and has been exporting into Asia for the past five years. It was founded by Matt and Sue Johnson, working out of their home, and now has 11 employees.

Matt Johnson says, “Over the past five years our main people recruiting has been in design and manufacturing, because of the quick-moving digital market that we are in. We have a focus on R&D, trying to identify trends and develop new products all the time.”

The CardLine system will glue a card to a carrier – often a mailer, package or point of sale card, and add a level of personalisation, whether text, graphics or barcodes, using inkjet technology.

CyanX says the SIM card packaging market has proven a big success for Trimatt globally with the Vodafone, 3 Mobile and Lebara brands using Trimatt equipment to satisfy packing automation, reducing costs in both labour and material.
