We were given the most outstanding after-sales support and (Matthews has) continued to solve any issues we faced during the past five years.

(Matthews) helped us to upgrade our system and we achieved high quality printing with substantial savings.

The outstanding performance of Matthews, and our Sales Rep in particular, motivated us to make another investment with confidence. We shared our success story with our sister companies and several plants are currently purchasing or planning to acquire Matthews systems.
