Standard Finishing Systems appoints KBR Graphics new dealer in Ontario

Standard Finishing Systems, a leading North American supplier of print finishing systems, has named KBR Graphics the exclusive dealer for Standard Horizon products throughout the province of Ontario, Canada.  KBR and Standard have enjoyed a strong business relationship in the Quebec and Eastern Ontario marketplace for 22 years, so this move builds on that success.

KBR Graphics has well-established sales and service teams with decades of graphic arts experience. KBR takes pride in the lasting partnerships they have forged with Canadian customers by providing top-quality products, and they understand the key importance of keeping customers up-and-running with minimal down-time.  The company has factory-trained service technicians in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City and a well-equipped service fleet for expert on-site support.

“We’re delighted that we can now offer Standard Horizon in both Ontario and Quebec, especially because we already know the product line so well,” said Karl Belafi, Sr., president, KBR Graphics.  “We already serve hundreds of satisfied Horizon users throughout Quebec, and we look forward to helping customers in Ontario find the best finishing solutions available to meet their application needs.”

“This was a natural extension of KBR’s post-press success in Quebec, and we’re pleased that they will now represent our diverse line throughout eastern Canada,” said David Reny, Executive Vice President, Standard Finishing Systems.  “We depend on strong local dealers to provide immediate and personalized sales and service attention, and KBR has proven their ability to do just that.”

KBR Graphics will carry commercial-duty Standard Horizon saddlestitchers, perfect binders and three-knife trimmers, folders, collators, bookletmakers and cutters.  Their expert sales team is available to consult with customers to find the right solution to post-press application challenges. Factory-trained KBR service technicians will install, train on, and offer maintenance for all Standard Horizon equipment.

KBR Graphics will be demonstrating a full compliment of automated Horizon saddlestitchers, perfect binders and folders at Graphics Canada 09 in Toronto November 12,13 and 14, 2009 in booth #3419.
