Bobst chooses Apex as Preferred Partner for its Web-Fed Division in Canada and the U.S.

In a recent agreement, Apex North America has become the preferred anilox manufacturer for Bobst North America’s Web-Fed Division – including its flexible packaging, pre-print and narrow-web presses. Apex and Bobst will work together to promote Revo narrow-web presses and the added value around a solution-based offering to the market – namely Bobst’s narrow-web presses combined with Apex’s GTT patent Anilox engraving. “This unique combination brings a clear intent to support our customers,” said the companies. “Apex remains the only anilox company to offer every possible engraving and roll composition in the market today, giving Bobst a complete and full anilox selection – from conventional to GTT to meet all of its web-fed customers’ printing and coating needs.
