Graffin s.r.o. is involved in commercial and service activities in the field of deliveries of offset printing machines, semi-rotary offset machines, digital machines, and machines for finishing and bookbinding processing. The company’s activities began in mid-2003, when Graffin took over the exclusive representation of the Japanese brand HORIZON for the Czech market from Grafitec.
Subsequently, Graffin s.r.o. obtained exclusive representation of the Japanese brand of printing machines KOMORI for the Czech and Slovak Republics in 2005. The printing machines of Komori, the largest Japanese manufacturer, represent the real pinnacle in their field, with a rich history dating back to the 1920s. Komori’s brand position is very strong in Asia, America, and Europe, where it successfully competes with German manufacturers. In the 1990s, the machine manufacturer decided to strengthen its position in the newly emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe and gradually developed its distribution network there, which is successfully completed today. By the end of 2022, more than 95 Komori printing machines had been installed on the Czech and Slovak markets.
The Horizon brand traditionally has a very strong position in many European countries. Horizon machines designed for finishing and bookbinding processing also have a rich history on the Czech market dating back to the early 1990s, when the machines were sold through Grafitec. Graffin has been representing the Horizon brand since 2003, i.e., since its inception. In 2016, it acquired representation of MIYAKOSHI‘s semi-rotary offset machines and has also represented the Italian brand VALIANI for die-cutting machines since 2021.
