Agfa and Fujitex have signed an agreement on SYNAPS distribution in Japan.
The agreement covers the distribution of Agfa’s synthetic paper SYNAPS in Japan and adds to Fujitex’s offering to the local promotion and office printing market.
SYNAPS is a polyester-based print media developed, manufactured and marketed by Agfa. It comes in two versions based on distinct print technology for offset and elektro-ink (SYNAPS OM) and xerography or dry toner (SYNAPS XM). Both OM and XM products are available in a variety of thicknesses and OM includes also a self-adhesive type. Their use is driven by applications that require indoor or outdoor durability such as tags, signage, labels, posters and menu cards.
The agreement covers the distribution of SYNAPS Xerographic Matt (XM) in view of the strong position that Fujitex holds in the office printers and supplies market in Japan, a press release from Agfa said.
Fujitex will bring SYNAPS XM to the Japanese market through its own offline and online direct sales channels as well as via some of their customers, including one of the biggest stationery suppliers in Japan.
Fujitex is a global trading company located in Japan with annual sales of around $100 million.
