MOSCOW – The recently rebranded IM GROUP, previously Inkmaker Group, announced it has appointed Roll2Roll as the company’s new service agent and distributor for Russia.

Alfredo Ponzio, Area Sales Manager and Group Head Technician (EMEA) of IM GROUP recently met with Eduard Galperin, founder and General Manager of Roll2Roll, in Moscow to finalize the contract that officially grants Roll2Roll total rights to represent IM GROUP and its brands in Russia in the inks and printing sectors. Roll2Roll reportedly has many years of experience and knowledge of the market in Russia.

“We are honored. This is a significant move for both parties; IM GROUP is a recognized global leader carrying respected brands. It has grown tremendously and boosted its geographical presence through its recent acquisitions. It now boasts a portfolio of six brands that between them span the industries of paint, coatings, ink, specialty chemicals, adhesives, corrugated packaging, flexible packaging, pharma, food, cosmetic, textiles and much more,” said Galperin. “With Roll2Roll’s resources, network and in-depth intelligence of the local market we are well positioned to expand IM GROUP’s reach in Russia even further.”

“With over 70 installations, IM Group — through its brand Inkmaker — has always been a leader of integrated and automated ink-dispensing systems in Russia,” said Ponzio. “Now, with Roll2Roll’s collaboration, our market share is set to increase substantially.”

Roll2Roll was established in Moscow in 2003. It is a leading equipment, spare parts and consumables supplier for the labels and flexible packaging printing market, as well as for the production of corrugated cardboard and the processing of paper and film.

“Roll2Roll is one of Russia’s foremost distributors and represents many leading international brands. We are confident that this union will boost IM GROUP’s expansion through Russia and benefit both parties significantly,” said Gianluca Incerti, Commercial Director of IM GROUP.
