“With uncertain travel restrictions, it’s now possible to communicate with present and potential customers via Internet video services. However, shipping costs and delivery times have risen dramatically. So, we are expanding our ‘family,’ adding distributors in 40 countries where sea or air transport is required for delivery,” the company announced. “We welcome inquiries from interested companies.”

Marcello Strada provides partners with one demonstration machine and an initial supply of cardboard inserts. They also are establishing a warehouse to enable customers to purchase supplies through local delivery services. Moreover, all supplies are nontoxic and eco-friendly.

“As our network of distributors expands, we will participate in trade shows closer to our present and potential customers. We are represented at the Hotel Expo in Sofia, Bulgaria, the Print & Digital Convention in Düsseldorf, Germany, and PacPrint in Melbourne, Australia. As more distributors are added to our family, we will publish their information and additional shows on our website,” the company added.
