Agelvis e.u. Moving VSOP from Colombia to East Europe

DG press coordinates the moving of a fully operational VSOP-850 hybrid offset press from Colombia to Eastern Europe, with local transporter and packer, Agelvis E.U.

Part of our service involves commissioning and reselling used presses. Plafilm, our Colombian customer, approached us several months ago to help him sell his VSOP-850 machine, which had been on sale for quite some time. Knowing our customers so well, our Service Manager, Frank Stoelinga, immediately made a connection with a Bulgarian company in our portfolio that was looking to expand its machinery to also print flexible packaging.

A quick recap of the swift transaction mediation

Frank Stoelinga, along with the Bulgarian customer, visited Plafilm in Cali, Colombia to inspect the machine. The visit by Frank and the customer to Colombia was successful, resulting in the purchase of Plafilm’s VSOP through DG press.

The press was sold in an “as-is, where-is” condition, including dismantling in Colombia, installation, and training in Bulgaria. DG press was responsible for the dismantling, which was carried out promptly with the assistance of two DG press personnel and a technician provided by the buyer. Transportation and packing was a major project. The services of local transporter and packer, Agelvis e.u. was enlisted, with whom our foreman Rob Hoogkamp coordinated the packing. Rob speaks of a great collaboration with the Agelvis team. All in all, it was a significant order for all parties involved, and we look forward to commissioning another VSOP at our other customer’s facility in Bulgaria.

In the words of the buyer: “When we met DG press at K-show in 2022, we discussed our plans to get into flexible packaging but we were lacking the appropriate machinery to embark upon this endeavour. DG press went the extra mile not just by bringing a suitable machine to our attention, but by providing guidance throughout the inspection and purchase process in Colombia. DG press has earned our trust to oversee the complete relocation and commissioning of the machine. It is evident that DG press is more than just a supplier; they embody the essence of a true partner.”

In the words of the seller: “We’ve had a splendid VSOP-850 up for sale for quite some time now, as circumstances have rendered it unused. We needed someone who knew the machine well and understood the market well. It didn’t take long for us to find this in DG press, a trustworthy partner known for its personalized approach. Our utmost praise goes out to DG press for finding a buyer for this machine, something we couldn’t do for a long time. The machine is packing up to leave, but we take comfort in knowing someone else will put it to good use.

Quote from DG press: “We take immense pride in facilitating a successful sale and purchase for both our esteemed clients: the smooth transition of their long-time machine sale, as well as the meticulous coordination of inspection, dismantling in Colombia, and installation and training in Bulgaria. We’d like to extend our gratitude to the incredible team at Agelvis e.u. Your exceptional professionalism and unwavering support over the past few weeks went smoothly and nothing short of remarkable. The seamless execution of tasks, including the handling of machine parts, efficient pallet packing and sealing, and flawless container loading, far surpassed our expectations.
