Oosterhout, 16 May 2019 – Effective immediately, The Siebold Company (TSC) is the authorised agency of QIPC-EAE in the United States, the Caribbean and Canada. The Dutch specialist for color control and registration equipment for the printing industry praises the technical knowledge of the new partner. TSC in turn is full of praise for QIPC's state-of-the-art and register control systems and EAE's press control systems.

Signing the Q.I. PRESS CONTROLS & EAE Authorized Distribution Agency Agreement are QIPC-EAE Americas Managing Director, Ronald Reedijk and TSC VP of Corporate Development, Chris Miles. Standing L-R: TSC Parts & Service CSM Brian Roach, TSC VP Press, Parts & Service Eugene Albright, QIPC-EAE Head of Sales Erwin van Rossem, TSC President Jim Siebold, TSC SVP Richard Palmer and TSC VP Sales & Marketing Bruce Barna.

At the request of the market
TSC has a prominent presence as a service provider in press equipment in the North American and Caribbean graphics market. It focuses in particular on newspaper and commercial printing and stands for total solutions for the industry. "For years, the market has required us to develop color and register control," said TSC senior vice president Richard Palmer. "A partnership with QIPC-EAE gives us the opportunity to offer newspaper and commercial printers the best solution in those categories”.

Proven technology
QIPC-EAE's mRC-3D and IDS-3D colour, cut and register control systems have proven their worth in practice for many years. Bruce Barna, Vice President Sales & Marketing at TSC said: "Our goal with this partnership is to provide our customers with the best solutions available in every press support category."

More attention to QIPC-EAE
The partnership is not only positive for TSC and its customers, it also gives QIPC-EAE the opportunity to expand its customer base. "Because the people at TSC have extensive technical and commercial knowledge of the industry's needs and requirements, the focus on our solutions will only increase," expects Ronald Reedijk, managing director of QIPC-EAE Americas. "This will lead to further growth of our sales in the US, Canada and the Caribbean, thanks in part to TSC's seasoned sales team, which is well established and has a good knowledge of the market.”

TSC expresses the same expectation. "Over 10,000 QIPC's state-of-the-art colour and register control cameras have been sold and there are more than 500 EAE-printing sites worldwide," said Christophe Miles, vice president of corporate development. "Our partnership will help QIPC-EAE significantly expand its customer base in the region where we operate."
