XSYS appoints Arben Graphic Systems as distributor in the West Balkan market

XSYS, one of the leading providers of prepress solutions for the flexographic and letterpress sectors, has announced the appointment of Arben Graphic Systems as new distribution partner in the West Balkans, covering Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, North Macedonia and Montenegro. With this strategic agreement, Arben Graphic Systems is taking on the full breadth of XSYS’ innovative solutions portfolio for the benefit of new and existing customers in the region.

Founded in 2000, Arben Graphic Systems is a Ljubljana-based company that provides a wide range of best-in-class products to customers in the printing and packaging industry, including workflow and colour management software, plates, inks, prepress and printing equipment, and other consumables.

The new agreement with XSYS, which came into effect from April 12, 2024 includes the nyloflex® and nyloprint® flexographic and letterpress plate portfolios, and ThermoFlexX, Catena, and nyloflex® Xpress platemaking equipment, as well as Woodpecker surface screening software.

‘XSYS has the most comprehensive plate and prepress offering in the industry, a great fit for our business,’ said General Manager, Stanko Kukulj. ‘We strive to offer our customers the best possible solutions for all their printing needs and as a complete one-stop shop, there were some pieces missing in the puzzle. Now, with XSYS on board, we are completing the whole picture. We are extremely proud to be representing quality brands such as nyloflex®, ThermoFlexX, and Catena.’

As a growing business, Arben Graphic Systems is in the process of expanding its facility with a new purpose-built logistics building, warehousing and offices. Throughout its wide network, which includes local plants in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as Serbia, the team is known for its extensive expertise in flexo, gravure and offset printing.

In addition to offering service and technical support to customers, the company prides itself on the continual training of its staff members and close working relationships with its global supplier partners. As an added benefit, the Arben team often organises industry seminars and events for customers as part of its mission to inform and educate.

‘Arben Graphic Systems represents everything we appreciate in a partner: in-depth technical competence, wide industry expertise gained in the field and a well-developed local network,’ commented Paul Campbell, Sales Director Northern Europe and EEMEA at XSYS. ‘As a recognised industry supplier with excellent warehousing facilities and established logistics operations, Arben will be a great asset for our customers in the region and the global XSYS network. We look forward to a mutually beneficial collaboration.’
