GEW expands its distributor enhancing global footprint

Partnerships in Pakistan, Kazakhstan for sales, spares and service support

L to R – Arman Zhumagaliyev, the owner of Print Store, and Marcus Greenbrook of GEW, confirm the new agreement.

Next Graphics have been appointed as official sales distributor for GEW in Pakistan, for all label, narrow web and sheetfed offset business. The company will also support customers in the country with spare parts and technical service support.

Next Graphics was initially established in the northern city of Lahore, Pakistan. They now have an additional office in Karachi, on the southern coast, enabling them to offer excellent geographical coverage across the country for both sales and service.

The Next Graphics team consists of 17 talented and dedicated printing professionals who are focused on providing first-class printing services for a range of industry technologies. They have established a strong reputation in the region, through their representation of many renowned industry brands such as Hanns Eggen, SBL Machinery, Daiso Japan and Rotatek.

Gauhar Hameed is the Founder and CEO of Next Graphics. He outlines his excitement regarding the new partnership, “By combining GEW’s expertise in UV curing systems for printing, coating and industrial applications with our top-quality products and trusted brands, we can offer a complete solution that delivers innovation, reliability and high performance. With our dedicated technical support and commitment to customer satisfaction, we will provide an exceptional service, helping our customers to thrive and stand out.”

Hameed highlights the depth of experience at Next Graphics, “We are celebrating the 15th anniversary of the formation of the company this year, marking a decade and a half of dedication, growth and innovation. Our co-founders bring a wealth of experience to the table, with a combined industry experience of over 35 years. We have been selling UV lamps and inks into the Pakistan market for many years, and we have a client-centric, adaptable approach to sales. This means we will always aim to provide the most innovative solutions, and we believe that GEW are the perfect partner for this approach.”

GEW’s director for International Sales, Marcus Greenbrook, comments on the new partnership, “We’re excited to be working with Next Graphics in Pakistan. We are already off to a flying start together, with the retrofit installation of an 8-lamp AeroLED system upgrade on a Mark Andy press, replacing an older E2C arc system. I am sure this will be the first of many such upgrades as they are often so simple, just requiring a change of lamp cassettes and a software update.”

Next Graphics have already hosted two highly successful sales symposiums, in Lahore and Karachi, which focused on informing customers about GEW’s latest developments in UV and UV LED for the label, narrow web and sheetfed offset markets. Greenbrook comments, “We look forward to taking part in and supporting Next Graphics with similar future events. We are excited to see the growth of our partnership, which will benefit customers old and new across Pakistan.”

GEW has also appointed Kazakhstan-based Print Store as its official distributor for Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. With immediate effect, Print Store are responsible for all label, narrow web and sheetfed system sales, as well as all spare parts and service support across these countries.
