Ceramic Anilox Engravers (CAE), global manufacturer of advanced anilox transfer technologies, in conjunction with their independent sales support partner, UMS Global Graphics, are delighted to announce the strategic agreement with Stafford Corrugated Products Inc. The agreement designates Stafford Corrugated as the USA sales partner for a variety of CAE anilox roll, sleeve and glue set solutions, effective September 1, 2022. Representatives from CAE and UMS were onsite at Corrugated Week 2022 to launch the new partnership and showcase their products at the Stafford Corrugated booth #815.

Located in Durban, South Africa, CAE produces all transfer technologies in their ISO-8001 certified, world class facility. The company is known for its proprietary coating technology, wide variety of anilox cell profile offerings, competitive pricing and fast lead times. Through strategic sales partnerships, CAE has quickly become one of the fastest growing anilox brands, exporting to now 47 countries around the world.

After extensive market research, CAE, in conjunction with UMS Global Graphics, chose Stafford Corrugated Products to expand their reach into the US corrugated market. Located in North Carolina, Stafford recently opened a new 50,000 square foot building to house parts and supplies and offers sales support, warehousing and distribution throughout the United States. The company will now offer the CAE line of corrugated glue sets, and anilox rolls/sleeves to converters throughout the States. The anilox products are laser-engraved in eCell, yCell, Cobra, and HITT transfer patterns and coated with a proprietary, robotically-applied Black Pearl™ ceramic coating.

Paul Rich, Technical Director CAE, states “As a family-owned and operated manufacturer, we understand the value of collaboration and are truly proud of the strategic partnerships we’ve established throughout the world.  We are more confident than ever in the quality and innovation of our anilox products and look forward to offering these proven solutions to the USA Corrugated market. Stafford Corrugated Products have a great reputation of introducing first class quality products with first class sales & technical support to their USA customers and we are delighted to strategically partner with their team. Our customers truly respect CAE as a strategic print partner and not just another anilox supplier.  Taking into account the various developments, innovations and partnerships, the future looks very bright for CAE and our global customers.”

Sean Keogh, Director UMS Global Graphics LLC, comments “We look forward to working with Tony D’Aprile and his team and supporting them with sales and technical support, alongside CAE.  Our team is very excited to bring this innovative anilox technology to the US Corrugated market, through a highly-regarded partner like Stafford Corrugated Products”.
