Heidelberg’s stellar reputation and involvement in the flexo arena make them a perfect choice for a partner,” said Scot Benson, Vice President and General Manager at MacDermid Printing Solutions.
“We have built our reputation upon providing some of the best products in the industry. We chose to distribute MacDermid’s products because of the superior quality of their new products and their rising position in the marketplace,” said Jerry Wynia, President of Heidelberg Canada.
