Aalborg, December 23 1999
January 1, 2000 SAXoTECH opens office in Norway. The branch office is placed in the Oslo area and manned with Norwegian employees, who are going to serve present and future customers.
After 3 years close cooperation with Luth Grafisk A/S as distributor of SAXoTECH products in the Norwegian market, SAXoTECH now takes over all sales- and support activities in Norway.
"Both partners have been very satisfied with this co-operation. However, for strategic reasons Luth Grafisk A/S wants in future to concentrate effort concerning consumables, CTP-solutions etc. Therefore SAXoTECH A/S and Luth Grafisk AS have come to an agreement to end the co-operation 01.01.2000, Market Manager Carsten Olsen declares and continues" I would like to emphasize that no perceptible changes in the existing installations will take place, because they are still going to be served according to the Support Agreement of SAXoTECH".
