DuPont de Nemours has appointed Rotocon as its new distributor to represent the Cyrel brand of flexo plates and equipment in South Africa.
The product suite is already available through Rotocon’s headquarters in Cape Town, and branch offices in Johannesburg and Durban.
Rotocon will advise customers on the optimum type of Cyrel plates, offer financing, and provide local service technicians for installation, operator training, and servicing of the equipment. DuPont’s local account manager, Kevin Naidu will also provide continued support.
Under the agreement, all Cyrel flexo plates and plate making equipment will be available through Rotocon including the new Cyrel 500 equipment designed to process smaller flexo plates of up to 66x86cm (26x34 in). The company will also offer the latest Cyrel Fast system, which uses no processing solvents and ensures plates are press-ready in 45 minutes, ideal for label and flexible packaging producers.
‘It is an honor to be appointed as DuPont’s local distributor in South Africa,’ said Michael Aengenvoort, co-owner and director of Rotocon. ‘We look forward to sharing the benefits of its innovative Cyrel flexo plates and equipment with South African printers of flexible packaging, tag and label, corrugated, and folding cartons.’
