Friedheim International is pleased to announce that it is enlarging its equipment portfolio with the addition of a major new supplier – the VEGA Group – that offers a range of Italian folding and gluing machines for producing solid and corrugated board boxes of various sizes and thicknesses, plus box collecting.  VEGA equipment provides highly productive and cost-efficient finishing solutions for short, medium and high run applications across all market sectors: commercial print, digital print, converting and packaging.

In addition to the equipment mentioned above, VEGA offers further options including Braille embossing and double feeding, along with a custom design service to meet special customer requirements.  All of the machines will be available in the UK and Ireland with immediate effect from Friedheim International.

Managing Director of the Vega Group, Jacopo Nava, comments: “We are very pleased to secure this partnership with Friedheim International as we value their long-standing expertise in the finishing sector, their ability to deliver best quality sales and service to meet the business needs of customers, as well as the excellent relationships they have with their customers.  All these factors can only bode well for our joint future success!”

Says Mark Bristow, Managing Director of Friedheim International: “The addition of VEGA and its excellent and diverse product range is a clear indication of how seriously Friedheim views its involvement across all areas of finishing in commercial and digital print, as well as packaging and converting. 

“By offering VEGA’s range of multi-point folding and gluing equipment this is another strategic and highly positive move that takes Friedheim to the ‘core’ of both the carton and corrugated converting industries.  It is a move that we would not have undertaken unless we were fully able to support both the manufacturer and its existing and future customers!”   

Responsible for overseeing the smooth integration of the VEGA equipment into the Friedheim portfolio is John Harrison, who has more than 20 years experience of working with global suppliers of finishing and converting equipment to the graphic arts and packaging industries.
