(PresseBox) ( Amstelveen, )
Screen has appointed Yam International as exclusive distributor in Russia and Ukraine for its range of flexo CTP products, which includes the new PlateRite FX870II, PlateRite FX870 and PlateRite FX1524.

Yam International is one of the main suppliers to the graphic arts sector in Russia, Ukraine and other Commonwealth of Independent States countries. It was founded in 1989 and, recognising the growing importance of the packaging and labels markets, created a specialist department to service this sector in 2001.

Andrey Dynkin, head of the flexo sales department at Yam International, says: "When a new generation of Toyobo CTP plates was announced in 2008, we started looking for a supplier of high-quality flexo platesetters. After some research it became clear that Screen was the best with its quality, stability and reputation. Screen, with its newly designed FX870 and FX1524 was also looking for a good distributor."

"We are looking forward to our cooperation with Yam on the Russian and Ukraine markets," says Screen's northern European sales manager Frans Kops. "I am sure that the vast knowledge and extensive experience of Yam as a distributor will help us to successfully introduce our flexo CTP systems."

New digital technology in CTP provides significant improvement in the quality of printing and reduces the time needed for making plates. High quality and minimum errors is the industry standard and many printers are expected to switch to CTP in the near future. "Together, Screen and Yam will offer high-quality equipment with excellent technical support," says Dynkin. "We can provide the best solutions on the market for people thinking about flexo CTP."

Dynkin goes on to say that customers will be offered integrated solutions of CTP, photopolymer plates, platemaking equipment and technical support. "The quality of Screen's equipment is very well known from offset and it is one of best solutions in the market. Yam is reliable and continuously growing. Our Toyobo plates are a high quality product. Now customers can receive the full package of high-quality equipment, high-quality consumables and high-quality technical support from one company, responsible for all aspects of the solution."
