Xeikon has announced a new cooperation agreement with Smart LFP for Poland. The new agent will be handling sales of all dry toner and inkjet printing presses for labels, flexible packaging, and folding carton, in a move that sees Xeikon expand its established presence in this key market.  

Established in 2019, Smart LFP was set up to offer professional integration of the production environment based on deep knowledge and long experience in the Polish printing market. It is based in Katowice, in southern Poland, where the well-equipped Smart LFP Experience Center offers on-site demos of solutions for large format printing, wall decoration, multifunctional digital cutting and ERP software. With the new appointment, the company is now adding to these core competencies with the extensive application-focused Xeikon portfolio of technology. 

The partnership will help Xeikon to extend their market share

“Xeikon is a pioneer of digital color printing technology with many years of experience in the global market, and this is a great fit with our own business model,” said Adam Ambrozkiewicz, business development manager of Smart LFP. “As a distributor of Xeikon, we can now offer our clients comprehensive solutions for the fast-growing labels and packaging segments. We have only just taken on this fantastic new opportunity, but it has been greeted with great enthusiasm, and we already have several projects underway. This is a very exciting development for us.”

“Although Smart LFP has only been in operation for a few years, this is a team of highly experienced print experts with many contacts in the industry. Their fast-growing operation and rapidly expanding product portfolio are perfectly in line with our own strategy for growth,” said Michał Kuczkowski, sales manager Poland, Labels & Packaging, Xeikon. “This mutually beneficial partnership will increase our activity in the large Polish market even further, reaching new companies and introducing them to many opportunities that Xeikon solutions bring to the labels and packaging space.

“We see a lot of potential to extend our market share by bringing local onboard experts, and we believe that Smart LFP will create additional sales opportunities, which will turn into more installations of Xeikon machines in Poland for various applications”, concluded Kuczkowski.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
