ACG Nyström a market leading full-service provider to the textile industry, providing equipment and service as well as software solutions and consultancies, and Eastman Machine Company, an industry-leading manufacturer of cutting machines and solutions, enhance long-standing partnership to streamline sales, service, and support of Eastman automated equipment across Scandinavia, the Baltic States and Ukraine. ACG Nyström, part of ACG Gruppen, is now an exclusive supplier of Eastman’s automated line and will act as a hub for imported equipment, parts, and consumables. The updated alliance will result in shorter lead time and direct delivery within the European Union.For the past 20 years, ACG Nyström exclusively sold, installed, and serviced cutting equipment from Gerber Technology. With the recent acquisition by Lectra, ACG Nyström decided to cut ties with Gerber and strengthen its partnership with the American-based Eastman Machine Company.“Our unique partnership with ACG Nyström was established many years ago and I am proud to see continued growth and cooperation,” says Robert Stevenson, Eastman CEO. “Combined, we have over 200 years of experience in the textile industry, calling for a powerful partnership. I look forward to seeing the added capabilities our collaboration creates.” The relationship between Eastman Machine and ACG began over 100 years ago when Carl Axel Gustafsson sourced manual Eastman cutting equipment for his brand-new agency, A C Gustafsson AB, in Stockholm, Sweden. The Stockholm area was booming with textile manufacturers during the 1920s and ACG quickly solidified its position as an elite supplier of textile machinery. In September of 1961, Reimar Westerlind took over the company and has been leading ACG Nyström for the past 60 years. The executive team of ACG Nyström consists of Reimar Westerlind,Owner, Thomas Arvidsson, CEO, and Per-Martin Dahlqvist, Vice President. We are happy to have signed a new long-term agreement/partnership with Eastman, says Thomas Arvidsson.Eastman’s broad product range will create new opportunities for us at ACG Nyström, and together we have extensiveknowledge and experience, says Per-Martin Dahlqvist. Eastman Machine Co. and ACG Nyström will be co-exhibitors at Texprocess in Frankfurt, Germany during June 21-24, 2022. The duo will demonstrate multi-ply cutting on the Talon, and other material handling equipment, in hall 8 stand E52.
