Government of UAE is serious about protecting the environment. That’s why authorities are encouraging companies and industries resort to environmentally friendly practices. Printers which to be fair have always been conscious about environment are showing huge interest in using Chemistry free or process free plates. One of the early users of chemistry free plates is Dubai based Kwality Printing and Stationery. The company has been using Agfa’s Azura chemistry free plates for more than 7 years.
The man at the helm of Kwality is H M Bhatia who joined his father in the printing business in Bombay in 1961. In 1976, he established Kwality Printing and Stationery in Dubai. The company specializes in commercial offset printing, stationary, packaging as well as paper bags and gift boxes. In addition, Kwality also offers promotional printing jobs and screen printing on caps, t-shirts, pens, PVC & corrugated displays. The company undertake all types of digital printing jobs including backlit, display stands, banners, posters, show cards, danglers, vehicles, floor graphics etc.
Seven years ago, Kwality Printing Stationery switched to Agfa Graphics’ Azura chemistry-free printing solution, as they were looking for an environment-friendly solution both for themselves and their customers. And so far they are happy with the results and the service Agfa offers.
First introduced in 2004, Agfa Graphics’ chemistry-free CtP plate Azura is used by many printers across the world. 2014 marked the 10th anniversary of the release of Azura. To celebrate this anniversary, Agfa Graphics decided to put twelve Azura users from all over the world in the spotlight over the following twelve months, ending at the IGAS trade show in Japan in Tokyo 2015.
Next to its Azura TS plates, Agfa Graphics recently launched Azura TU, the third generation of its chemistry-free printing plates.
