NEWTON, KS—January 14, 2014—Bunting Magnetics and Electro Optic U.S. have announced a narrow web flexographic printing and converting partnership, which brings Bunting magnetic cylinders and Electro Optic U.S. flexible dies to the industry through the Electro Optic U.S. sales organization. Effective immediately, Electro Optic U.S. is the sole distributor of Bunting magnetic cylinders to label printers in the United States and Canada.
"Our collaboration with Bunting Magnetics brings together the finest magnetic cylinders and our world-renowned Electro Optic flexible dies. This alliance will streamline the supply chain and provide printers and converters with a single source," said Markus Marfurt, Electro Optic U.S. president.
