GURNEE, IL – After a 10-year track record of success, the hubergroup USA Inc. and GFI Innovations are embarking on the next chapter of their partnership. The companies have entered into a preferred dealer agreement that benefits hubergroup’s brand network of customers for both offset and flexographic inks in the United States and Canada.

The hubergroup provides a wide range of products - including ink-mixing systems - for commercial, news and package printing applications. The company has a global sales network of over 150 offices and 40 regionally operated ink-manufacturing companies.

“Our relationship with GFI Innovations extends more than 10 years. Recently we have been very successful in the packaging inks market in the USA and Canada,” remarked Martin Weber, Group Managing Director for hubergroup USA, Inc. “Especially in this market segment, we see strong potential for our cooperative efforts with GFI by offering printers-integrated solutions for in-house color mixing. Our business has also been more active on the flexo ink side, and the market is growing.”

The hubergroup uses GFI’s AccuBlend-HV for offset litho inks and the new AccuBlend-LV for flexo applications. Both offer hardware and software systems that improve control over the ink mixing process, schedules and workflow.

GFI Innovations is a provider of precision formulation dispensing solutions used by printers of all types.
