Grafica appoints NSDS Group as representative for South Africa
Continuing its march towards global presence, Grafica recently appointed National Screen And Digital Supplies (NSDS), as its representative for the Southern African region.
Commenting on the development, Patrick Nolan, one of the senior officials at NSDS, said, “We are very excited about offering Grafica machinery into the growing market of South Africa.”
The enthusiasm of NSDS is such that they have already planned to showcase Grafica's machines in at least two major international exhibitions in South Africa, including FESPA-Africa, wherein they would be showcasing Grafica's screen printing machines. These plans are in addition to the recent exhibition, viz, Sign Africa held on March 18 – 19, 2015 at Durban International Convention Centre, South Africa.
Recalling his first tryst with Grafica, Patrick says: “I had visited the FESPA Eurasia trade show in Istanbul, Turkey, where I saw Grafica's nano-prinTag, DTG tagless label screen printing machine which was displayed by their Turkey distributor – Fatih Tekstil. Back in South Africa, I got in touch with Grafica for possible alliance. Rest is history … we are now moving in direct direction by showcasing their machine for first time in South Africa, at Sign Africa'15.”
“With our new association with India's Grafica Flextronica, we wish to offer the best possible range of screen printing presses, allied equipment and service solutions to our already existing large customer base in South Africa and neighbouring markets. We look forward to working together with Grafica,” concludes Patrick.
