Paterson, NJ (PRWEB) July 19, 2008 -
Colter & Peterson announces that it has reached distribution agreements with agents in more than 41 countries worldwide to offer Prism-HPM and Saber paper cutters as well as C&P Peripheral from Knorr Systeme.
This marks the first time that Colter & Peterson, the largest independent distributor of paper cutters and paper handling equipment in North America, will be distributing its products around the world.
"Having installed over 2,000 machines in North America over the past 15 years, we feel now is the right time for us to approach the global market," says Bruce Peterson, President of Colter & Peterson. "We have a very powerful lineup with two ranges of paper cutters and a full complement of paper handling equipment. All our distributors will have a full package to offer customers."
Another factor influencing the opportunity to begin distributing products in Europe is that Colter & Peterson now has a partner in the United Kingdom to provide real time parts, service and technical support. "Being able to provide support directly from Europe gives us a base of operations to launch our products outside of North America," says Peterson.
