Durst, OMET strengthen distributor relationship

August 1, 2018  By PrintAction Staff

Durst and OMET have formed a strategic partnership in North America that allows OMET exclusive access for sales of the Durst Tau product line, with full implementation expected by Labelexpo Americas 2018, where the new Tau 330 RSC will be showcased as a standalone label press system as well as in-line with the new OMET XJet digital-flexo hybrid press.

The new partnership, they explain, will provide label printers extended engineering capabilities, added services, and combined digital and flexo printing expertise from a single source. Furthermore the combined efforts will help extend the reach of both companies in North America, while OMET’s Chicago, Ill., office will help provide a central location for customer demonstrations and faster sample turnaround time. Durst has appointed Richard Thomas, formerly Business Development Manager for North American Label Segment, as the newly titled Director of North American Digital Business Initiative for Labels and Package Printing.

“We are delighted to expand our collaboration with OMET,” says Helmuth Munter, Global Segment Manager for Labels & Package Printing at Durst Group. “Bringing together our know-how and market expertise provides increased value for our customers and accelerates the digitization of the label & packaging market.”

“OMET is excited about the collaboration with Durst. “This partnership allows us to offer a complete system of printing solutions to our customers in North America. The interest in digital printing is growing quickly and OMET Americas now has the right answers for the market,” adds Claudio Semenza, OMET Americas Sales Director.
