Cape Town, South Africa – ROTOCON has expanded its brand with the official registration of its subsidiary ROTOCON Asia. The new company will offer the ROTOCON ECOLINE range of finishing equipment to printers and converters throughout Asia and provide local service.
Established in 2008 in South Africa, ROTOCON is a family-owned business led by German-born Michael Aengenvoort and his sons, Pascal and Patrick. ROTOCON has proven to be a reliable provider of high-quality printing equipment to the South African narrow web industry.
In 2018, ROTOCON established ROTOCON Europe to represent the ECOLINE product range, as part of ROTOCON’s own line of finishing equipment initially launched in South Africa in 2017. ECOLINE is also available to the North American market through ROTOCONTROL, led by managing director Marco Aengenvoort, Michael’s eldest son.
The ECOLINE economy line of finishing equipment meets the technology investment needs of smaller labelling operations and start-up ventures, which must carefully balance the highest possible specifications with competitive pricing. Various models are offered providing roll to roll inspection and slitting (vertical and horizontal designs), offline die cutting, booklet inspection, in-mould labelling, and digital finishing with embellishments.
Each ECOLINE model has a compact footprint, easy-to-use control panel and open machine design to maximize operator friendliness. Over 100 of these customizable models have been commissioned in South Africa and beyond in Mauritius, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Australia, and the US.
“Our entry into Asia is an exciting milestone for ROTOCON,” said Michael Aengenvoort, ROTOCON director and co-owner. “We are actively recruiting local distributors to represent the ECOLINE brand and expand our presence in this growing and dynamic market.” To reflect ROTOCON’s global reach, the company’s email and website domain is now rotocon.world.
