Xeikon establishes direct organisation in Australia and New Zealand

Flint Group acquisition prompts greater regional synergies

Eede, the Netherlands

Xeikon is creating a dedicated sales, service and support operation in Australia and New Zealand. The new division will be fully operational in February 2017. The decision follows the acquisition of Xeikon by Flint Group following a thorough review of synergies between the companies.

Time is right

 “After assessing the opportunities for both companies we have decided the time is right to establish a direct sales and service organization in Australia and New Zealand. It will handle the full range of Xeikon digital presses and solutions for labels, folding cartons and commercial printing.”

Bent Serritslev, Managing Director Asia Pacific

Absolute Electronics

At the same time, Xeikon will cease its collaboration with dealer Absolute Electronics.

Great long-term service

“Xeikon would like to thank Absolute Electronics for their great long-term service and support in the region and helping us to build such a firm foundation.  We will work closely with Absolute Electronics during the transitional period to ensure our customers remain a top priority.”

Bent Serritslev, Managing Director Asia Pacific
