Graph-Pak will take over from David Trigg to distribute the RE S.p.A. range of products in Australia and New Zealand.

Graph-Pak has signed a four year agreement to represent the RE range of brakes, web guides, web viewing systems, mechanical chucks, safety chucks and load cells in Australia and New Zealand

Graph-Pak owner Tom Ralph said it is with mixed emotions that he has taken over the distribution of the RE products from his old friend David Trigg in Adelaide as they have worked together for the last 25 years.

“David has been a loyal friend for the past 25 years and we have shared both good and bad times together. Unfortunately this is not one of those good times, as David became sick last year and this is now about passing on the business due to unfortunate circumstances.

“David and I worked together at Edward Keller for a decade in Sydney before I started Graph-Pak in 2005. We were both engineers and then I ended up moving into sales and took over the Edward Keller agencies that started the Graph-Pak business that exists two decades later.

“Since I started Graph-Pak, David has been my right arm – he has been doing my engineering in Adelaide and we have attended every trade fair together for the past 20 years,” Ralph said.

“This is another blue chip agency that has come on board for Graph-Pak. I want to make David proud of his decision to pass the business to us and also recognise the vote of confidence from the team at RE in Italy. Our engineers are involved with RE products on a daily and weekly basis, so it was an easy decision to partner with RE and add this famous business to our portfolio. It further complements our commitment to supplying great after-market solutions for existing and new clients.”

RE sales manager, Vittorio Pugliese, told ProPack he was very pleased to have Tom Ralph and the Graph-Pak team representing the Milan-based business.

“We have started this great collaboration following a recommendation from our friend David Trigg and we are looking forward to expanding our business together in Australia and New Zealand. Tom and Anthony from Graph-Pak are technically very experienced and we are always available for customer service and support,” Pugliese said.
