                                    Introduction to the launch of PGM Graphics Solutions:


PGM Graphics Solutions has been founded by Claus Nielsen to establish a global market platform for buyers and sellers of pre-owned Gallus / Arsoma machinery and to offer specialist advice and service to its clients. The company started operation end of 2006 and has since then added new activities and agencies to its product portfolio: 

1.       Flexo Wash, Denmark:  Recently, PGM Graphics Solutions was appointed as Flexo Wash’s exclusive UK/Ireland distributor for narrow-web products, mainly consisting of:

       - FW Anilox Roll Washing machines and systems
 - PK Parts cleaning machines
PK92 Screen stencil washing machines
Sleeve & Plate wash machines

2.       SMO, Oschersleben, Germany, has appointed PGM Graphics as their exclusive distributors for UK/Ireland as well as Scandinavia for their newly designed machine: EDM200, the first ever designed semi-rotary UV-Flexo machine, specifically designed for short-run work, primarily working as an over-printing machine. This machine with its very small foot print, generates practically no waste during set-up and between job changes, it is fully servo operated and works with sleeve technology both for print cylinders and anilox rollers. Existing flexo printers have the additional advantage that they can maintain their existing pre-press workflow and choice of plate material etc. so as to match their main production, and due to the sleeve technology, they can run seamless printing as well. Ideal for labels, tickets and tags.

3.       Flexo Art, Sweden, has appointed PGM Graphcis as their UK/Ireland distributors for their chambered doctor blade systems for Gallus EM280 and EM410 flexo machines, as well as FlexoCompact UV-flexo printing units for Gallus R160 and R200 label printing machines.

4.       Direct Laser Engraving Machines: PGM Graphics Solutions is now working as independant sales agents for Lead Lasers, Holland, offering pre-press solutions for flexo plates and sleeves, letterpress plates, dry-offset plates and relief embossing tools.

5.       Service: PGM offers specialist Gallus and Arsoma service, maintenance and machine moves in close partnership with TQM Mechanical Services for UK & Ireland as well as other service partners in Continental Europe and ROW.

During the first half year of trading, PGM has already helped many clients buying and selling Gallus and Arsoma machinery in England, Sweden, France, Germany and Holland, with many new projects in the pipe line.
