Kompac wins Ferrostaal contract

Formerly represented in New Zealand by Flint, the switch of agency has resulted in a new product range being introduced to the country in addition to the company’s IPA-reducing automatic dampening units, according to Ferrostaal New Zealand general manager Ian Gillanders.

As well as the replacement adapter units for the old-style presses, we are now doing the [Kwik Finish] offline coating machines,” he told ProPrint.

“They are reasonably priced and are niche machines — they can do flood-coat and spot-coat as well as aqueous and UV. They also have three sizes — the KF-20 which is a 20-inch, as well as a 26-inch and a 30-inch.”

Gillanders said the new machines are already generating interest in the industry.

Gillanders said that Kompac’s move to Ferrostaal was driven by both a desire to achieve improved representation, as well as his company’s growing portfolio.

“We represent a number of companies now — we took over Komori in March,” he said.

Ferrostaal has had a New Zealand presence under various guises for 30 years. It currently has five staff based in Auckland and one in Wellington, all of whom report to the company’s Australasian head office in Sydney.

Kompac is understood to have over 100,000 automatic dampening systems and 100 Kwik Finish units installed worldwide.
