Rigid and flexible packaging distributor Jet Technologies has partnered with a New Zealand-based printer paper and boards company.

B&F will be the sole distributor of Jet Technologies laminates and films in New Zealand, and will provide existing customers with service and support.

B&F is known for its slitting and distribution facilities, and the partnership will give the New Zealand market greater access to premium films including Soft Touch and Anti-Scuff laminates.

The partnership will also pave the way for new digital films in 2018.

B&F has invested substantially in an Atlas Titan SR800, a two metre-wide dual shaft slitter.

The Slitter Rewinder will allow customers to enjoy standard and custom widths alongside prompt delivery of slit rolls.

Jet Technologies’ local NZ expertise and product support will be ongoing via B&F.
