Soma (Lanskroun, Czech Republic), a leading global producer of flexographic printing presses, plate mounters and slitter rewinders, has chosen DTM Flexo Services of Stoney Creek, Ontario as its exclusive sales agent in Canada. DTM Flexo Services will be representing the entire Soma range of equipment across the country. DTM Flexo Services is a flexographic printing and converting sales and service company. Its team has over 70 years of combined, hands-on technical flexo experience, and a deep understanding of flexo process – from pre-press to press to post-press. It represents some of the finest systems and equipment on the market today. DTM particularly specializes in solutions for CI Presses, plate sleeve mounting and de-mounting, corrugated plate clean applications, web inspection systems, and much more. Through its expertise and an extensive network of trusted industry relationships, DTM helps clients find the right product and technology to improve their profitability, primarily by increasing productivity and reducing waste. This experience and expertise allows DTM to advise its customers on the benefits of modern flexo technology and what that means in terms of ROI.
“DTM is delighted to be chosen as the exclusive representative of Soma’s range of flexo equipment, particularly its line of mid-web and wide-web flexo presses – a fantastic press range for all Canadian printers,” said David McBeth, DTM Flexo Services President. “Soma has made a strong impact in Europe, a testament to their technology, service and support. Companies are looking for technologies with added features, capable of handling high-definition plates, and expanded-gamut technology, but at faster speeds with no bounce. This is where Soma really has an advantage for our customers. More important and applicable to us, Soma has invested a lot of resources to strengthen its presence in North America. They have been building a North American operations infrastructure and have partnered with MacDermid to build a one-of-a-kind, Global Innovation Center designed to help the flexo and packaging industries explore groundbreaking solutions. And, they have been partnering with sales teams, like DTM Flexo, who have strong reputations within the market,” McBeth added
“The DTM management team has an excellent reputation, has been involved in flexo and packaging for quite some time, and is very familiar with many printers and converters in Canada. They offer Soma great expertise and access to the Canadian market,” said Garrett Taylor, Soma’s Canada and U.S. Sales Director. “Their unique experience allows them to understand and advise their customers about the benefits of Soma technology and how it impacts print quality and ROI. I’m looking forward to working together and growing the Soma brand in Canada.”
