Uniprint plans to run Unsupported Film production with the ROTOCONTROL RSC Compact Slitter Rewinder
ROTOCONTROL today announced another RSC Slitter Rewinder Machine order in South Africa from Uniprint, the largest empowerment printer in the region. Pascal Aengenvoort, Director from ROTOTEC, the local Agent for ROTOCONTROL throughout South Africa led the discussions that secured the order.

We are confident that ROTOCONTROL will enable Uniprint to support this commitment with their market reputation and local support and service through ROTOTEC."
