Driven by higher customer expectations and the need to drive waste out of the production flow, printers supplying commercial, newspaper and packaging markets are seeking ways to ensure quality consistency throughout the production run, from one run to the next, sometimes at multiple locations. QuadTech's control and data management technology enables web-fed printers to deliver exacting quality and maintain a leaner, more productive workflow.

QuadTech president Karl Fritchen comments: "Ferag Australia has been a vital presence in Australia and New Zealand for over a quarter of a century. Their commitment to service and provision of state-of-the-art technology makes them an excellent match for us. We're certain that Ferag Australia's knowledgeable and dedicated staff will ensure fast response to our customers, whether for sales, service, or spare parts."
