Gama International and Absolute are glad to announce their new partnership for the UK and Irish markets. Absolute, a company based in the UK and operating worldwide, specializes in ink doctoring and ink circuits for the flexo industry, and it is already a leading company in the corrugated and flexibles markets. 

The company designs and produces automatic control systems for inks, paints, glues and adhesives, web-guide systems and format counting systems for the packaging, labels, and converting processes. The British company will be the local distributor of Gama products in the UK and Ireland, enriching the list of dealers the Italian company can rely on worldwide. It will take care of the sales and post-sales service in terms of installations and spare parts. 

Absolute is a trusted world leader in designing and manufacturing carbon fiber-chambered doctor blade systems, with more than 15,000 successful installations worldwide. It is a key part of Pamarco, the largest manufacturer of anilox rollers globally, which serves different sectors such as flexo, coating and laminating, corrugating, embossing, and gravure.

Gama solution’s reach in various markets

Gama International, part of I&C-Gama Group, installed over 12,000 systems worldwide, and its solutions are sold to customers in the packaging, label, newspapers, and commercial printing markets and to manufacturers as OEMs solutions. The company is based in Milan, Italy, and it can count on a full team of marketing, sales, and after-sales people. For a wider presence in the American market, in 2016, Gama Americas was established based in York (PA).

“We know Absolute team since many years through Pamarco, which is already our dealer in the US, so we are confident about the mutual benefits of this agreement,” says Sante Conselvan, chief executive officer at the company.

“We have collaborated with Gama International for several years, and we incorporate their ink control systems on our hugely successful ink save, ink recovery, and print circuit washup systems. So, we decided to become their dealer in the UK and Ireland. I am sure our collaboration with Gama International will be fruitful since we trust each other’s approach to the market”, adds Antony Whiteside, chief executive officer at Absolute.


In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
