UK manufacturer Rollem has appointed Lyon-based Ollagnier SA as its distributor in France. Rollem has been designing and building bespoke finishing systems for 80 years and its products range from feeding, numbering, perforating, trimming and scoring systems to sophisticated lines that may require extremely accurate slitting, gluing, folding and wrapping.
Rollem’s ability to process stock as diverse as lightweight paper to plastic is one of the reasons the company has been successful in developing finishing lines when other manufacturers have refused to even consider looking for a solution.
Most of Rollem’s systems are based around precisely engineered rotary technology, which enables much higher throughput levels and accuracy than can be achieved with equipment based on platen or fixed knife principles.
Ollagnier is the distributor in France for several leading manufacturers, including Autobond, Busch, Brandtjen & Kluge, Hohner, and Grassi, while it sells Heidelberg, Polar, and Stahl equipment to public companies in Algeria.
“We are constantly looking out for partnerships where we can represent a leading manufacturer producing equipment that complements our existing range and this new agreement with Rollem is perfect,” says Ollagnier sales manager Olivier Thion.
“Rollem’s equipment is used across a huge variety of industry sectors, from digital and commercial print to highly specialised finishing as well as niche areas such as labels, greeting and playing cards. The use of rotary technology reduces wastage and often allows the printer to incorporate more items per sheet, which obviously increases throughput and profitability.”
