Pronexos and Apex International join forces
Pronexos (Almelo, The Netherlands) and Apex International combine their know-how and capacities in the field of advanced carbon fibre rollers. A cooperation contract was signed at the Apex headquarters in Hapert, The Netherlands. By teaming up, both companies will put themselves in an even stronger position to jointly support their customers in the printing and packaging industries.
“Our companies complement each other perfectly,” comments Pronexos managing director Leon Lagendijk. “Pronexos is a leading supplier of advanced CFRP rollers and relies on 40 years of experience in quality carbon fibre products. Apex International is the international leader in anilox and metering rolls and a top expert in the production of ceramic coated and laser engraved rolls for any purpose. Bringing these areas of expertise together forms a perfect fit.”
“The ever-growing market demand for lightweight and durable roll bodies in combination with the most accurate ceramic surface brought Pronexos and Apex International together,” comments Ken Ralton – owner of Apex International. “We have full confidence that the joint cooperation will be of additional value to the end users in the printing and packaging industry”.
The new partnership can be seen as another example of the increasing trend towards the use of carbon fibre in the packaging and printing industries. Modern carbon rollers provide significant benefits over traditional steel rollers, such as improved productivity by increased speeds, energy saving thanks to reduced weight and easier handling for safe replacement.
