KTI, a manufacturer of automatic splicers, turret rewinders and other web converting equipment, has agreed an alliance with Monomatic, an NSC Packaging company, out of Strasbourg, France, to distribute its products in the North American market.
KTI was looking for a way to increase its product offerings to its current customer base. Monomatic has been around since the 1950s with a strong presence in Europe and offers products similar to KTI’s current product line. The largest differences between the two product lines being size, speed and customizable options.
KTI offers nonstop unwinds and rewinds with roll diameters up to 50in, web widths up to 72in and speeds up to 1000ft/min. Monomatic equipment has roll diameters up to 59in, web widths up to 98in and speeds of up to 3280ft/min.
John Mitchell, international sales manager for KTI, will take on the role of North American sales manager for the Monomatic equipment through KTI. In addition, Monomatic will represent and sell the KTI product line throughout Europe.
