Anderson & Vreeland Represents Esko in Canada
MIAMISBURG, OH—November 19, 2013—The partnership between Esko and Anderson & Vreeland has been reinforced with the signing of an agreement allowing Anderson & Vreeland to represent Esko products in Canada. Anderson & Vreeland will represent the entire Esko product line, including all integrated hardware and software solutions for packaging and labels, sign and display, commercial printing and professional publishing.
Anderson & Vreeland has been an Esko reseller in the United States since late 2008 and, prior to that, was a long-time reseller of Artwork Systems products. In 2012, Anderson & Vreeland built a sales network in Canada, distributing products from its two locations in Montreal, Quebec, and Mississauga, Ontario. With Anderson & Vreeland's expansion, Canadian companies will be able to experience world class service supported by an integrated support team that includes client and technical services, a digital product specialist, field service engineers and a technologies team to support integration and address needs in both the prepress department and the pressroom.
"Our partnership with Esko continues to escalate based upon our similar cultures focused toward delivering customers not only best in class products and services, but also an approach to improve our relevance to our customers and the marketplace," comments Drew Elisius, Anderson & Vreeland Vice President. "Our experience working with Esko products in the United States offers us a great head start in Canada, assuring that our customers will benefit from the knowledge we have built over the years."
"Anderson & Vreeland has been an established and successful Esko reseller in the United States, and we have no doubt that they will become an important partner for us in Canada," explained Larry Moore, Esko's vice president of partner programs in North America. "They have a breadth of experience in all segments of print including a deep interest for flexography and will, in particular, offer emphasis to those in packaging and wide format printing."
The agreement between Esko and Anderson & Vreeland and the availability of products in Canada go into effect immediately.
