Universal Finishing Systems is to distribute Italian company Primac’s range of automatic spraying, profile sanding and hot air drying systems in the UK.

The agreement will also see Primac supply Universal machinery to Italian-based clients.

Kevin Whittle, Universal’s managing director, said: “Our product lines are very complementary, and providing their equipment as well as our own will considerably enhance the range of solutions we can offer.”

Deeside-based Universal makes vacuum coating, UV curing and infra-red drying systems.

Primac, based near Pordenone, offers finishing technology for both mouldings and panels. It also manufactures its own automatic handling systems.
