C&T CHANNEL MATRIX extends its range for UK Die Makers
Tuesday 21. February 2017 - Leading supplier of specialist creasing matrix products and accessories to the print and packaging industries, C&T Channel Matrix (C&T), has developed a range specifically aimed at UK die makers.
In October 2016, C&T Channel made a strategic decision to part-company with its UK distributor, Partwell, allowing C&T to sell its newly extended and targeted range directly to UK die makers, printers and box makers.
Simon Shenton, Managing Director for C&T Channel Matrix explains: “The new portfolio of products will provide huge benefits to customers in terms of direct sales contact here in the UK, backed up by our own highly skilled technical support. In the past our product offering has been limited to profile rubbers but we are now pleased to be able to offer a full one stop shop concept to our customer, enabling them to source products from one supplier.”
The range developments have brought together one of the most extensive ranges of rubber profiles, fully supported by a comprehensive range of steel rule and accessories. The steel rule range is manufactured by the German supplier GNU, renowned for its superior quality and features cutting rule, creasing rule, rotary rule and many other speciality products. This is supported by a full portfolio of plastic parts such as carrot bolts, centre line blocks and edge protectors as well as a range of other accessories such as nicking chisels, glue and mallets. Furthermore C&T Channel is now proud to offer 1mm steel plates in over 20 different sizes, available immediately for 24 hour delivery.
Finally, the market leading rubber profiles such as SPRINTRUBBA and FLEXICREASE are now joined by a full range of Vulcolan, Open/Closed Cell and a special range called Crystal Face, most suited to corrugated conversion.
CONTINUED COMMITMENT TO THE UK DIE MAKERS
Simon concludes, “C&T Channel remain fully dedicated to bringing cutting-edge products to the market – die makers need the reassurance of dealing with one supplier who can provide a package of complementary products to ensure maximum efficiency in conversion”.
