ECRM Imaging Systems Inc., Tewksbury, Mass., and Agfa-Gevaert do Brasil Ltda. announced a marketing agreement that will enable Agfa Graphics to market, distribute and service ECRM computer-to-plate solutions in Mexico, Central America, and South America.
Announcing the agreement, ECRM cited a forecast presented at Graphics of the Americas 2009 that reported the 11 largest Latin American economies are expected to grow 4.8% this year to $5.837 trillion despite the recent downturn. With almost three-quarter of the region’s commercial printers indicating plans to invest in technology and equipment, the survey asked when those without CTP (79% of participants) planned to buy such as system. Half (49%) said that will happen either this year or next.
