CAMBRIDGE, UNITED KINGDOM – Prepress company Hamillroad Software announced today that it appoints Plastex, a flexographic plate-maker, to take its Bellissima DMS screening to the Slovakia and Hungary market.

Slovakia and other regions in Eastern Europe have received significant investment and grants to support growing businesses. Production companies within the FMCG space are receiving considerable investment from the European Union.

Plastex operates across two locations, supplying flexographic printing plates to printers across Slovakia and Hungary, and maintains direct relationships with brand owners.

Klaudia Maňúrová, Production Manager, Plastex, comments: “We approached Hamillroad after receiving interest from our printing clients who want to trial the Bellissima screening technology. We were intrigued to plate and print the ultra-HD flexo results ourselves.”

“We have over 20 years of experience in flexo plate-making, and our customers rely on us to provide them with cutting edge technologies to stay competitive. We look forward to working with Hamillroad and Bellissima to provide our customers with next-generation flexo. The whole team at Plastex is very pleased to secure a position within the growing Bellissima Network and can share this good news with our clients – a new horizon in flexo!”

Plastex will provide Bellissima DMS using MacDermid LUX ITP 60 and DuPont plates to its customers.

Commenting from MacDermid Graphics Solutions, Bryce Benson, Territory Manager Nordics, Baltics, CIS, said: “Bellissima screening along with LUX ITP 60 technology is a proven solution to improve quality and consistency in flexo printing. With multiple plate and screening software options available, we are pleased Plastex chose to work with Hamillroad using our plates.”

Danielle Kinsella, Marketing Director, Hamillroad, adds: “We are pleased to welcome Plastex to our network of Bellissima trade shops and converters – they are a fantastic fit, and we expect them to be very successful.”

“We’ve received significant interest in Bellissima from all around the world. The interest is coming from all stakeholders, but especially from flexible packaging printers looking to source plates. The network launched last month, and its members are already collaborating across projects with global brands looking to adopt Bellissima for flexo as a cheaper alternative to gravure,” concludes Danielle.
