Digital equipment business manager Chris Matthews confirmed that contracts had been signed at a Heidelberg press conference yesterday.
He said: "With digital printing you need specialist digital finishing machinery. The Morgana and Watkiss kit complement each other and they don’t conflict with anything we supply.
"On top of that, they are both UK companies so it’s a great fit. We think there is a nice dynamic here. Both companies are happy to work together, neither of them were asking for exclusivity."
As part of the agreement, both companies will have machines at Heidelberg's expanded national showroom in Brentford, which will officially launch on 6-7 July.
