Reiser signs deal with Repak

Leading machinery supplier Reiser has signed a sales agreement with Dutch packaging specialist Repak BV.

The move sees Reiser's UK arm act as sales agent for Repak packaging machines in the UK market.

Reiser began representing Repak in the USA and Canada in 2003 and the new agreement extends the co-operation between Reiser and Repak to the UK market, effective July, 2008.

Peter Mellon, MD of Reiser UK, said: "We initiated our business co-operation with Repak in mid-2003. The performance, reliability and quality of Repak packaging machines have greatly impressed both us and our customers in the US and Canada. These qualities convinced us to deepen our business relationship with Repak in the UK."
