Agfa invests in new UK showroom
Agfa has invested in new UK premises to house both its Radiology Service Centre and a new Inkjet Solutions showroom. The site is scheduled to open in March 2021.
The new facility is located in Rugby, Warwickshire, allowing easy access for visitors across the UK and Europe, and will be dominated by showroom space displaying demonstration models from the growing Inkjet and HealthCare Radiology businesses. The showroom is planned to house the latest wide format inkjet printers and presses, as well as a bespoke demonstration and training area for Agfa’s Asanti and Apogee software suite.
Bobby Grauf, inkjet sales manager UK and Ireland, commented: ‘We are delighted to announce such a significant investment at this time. Like many of our customers, we used last year to evaluate how we operate in an everchanging market. Inkjet is one of Agfa’s core growth engines and being able to bring more systems closer to our customers is key in achieving our goals. Together with our head office in Belgium and our factory in Canada, the new UK showroom will be an invaluable facility to demonstrate a greater variety of Inkjet solutions to a wider audience.’
Agfa-Geavert Group announced the closure of its printing plate factories in Pont-à-Marcq, France and Leeds in June last year. The Leeds site previously served as a showroom location.
