All systems are fully supported by Xact’s own team of specialist engineers and technical sales personnel. Their expertise ensures customers receive the highest levels of service from initial specification, installation and commissioning of systems through to achieving and maintaining optimum performance levels throughout their operating life.

Xact have always recognised that high quality products demand high quality after sales and technical support.

We also understand that reliability and minimal downtime is essential to the smooth running of your business. All equipment undergoes rigorous testing by the manufacturer and is re-checked directly before installation to ensure utmost peace of mind.

Working closely with your own technical staff, Xact have a strong technical team to integrate new equipment into your existing set up:

Internal – Technical Service Manager based at our office controlling engineering support
Field – highly trained specialist engineers, based across the country, carry out all installations and service calls

Quality assurance – ISO 9001 quality management accreditation and ISO 9001 accredited manufacturing plants.  ISO 14001 accredited environmental management system.
Regular preventative maintenance – through customised service agreements

Training programmes are completely tailored to your requirements to ensure your Matthews equipment is up and running as quickly as possible, and to minimise
operator error.

In-depth maintenance training or basic operator training is available and will take place on site at the pace of the trainee.

The reliability and maximum efficiency of a machine is maintained by the use of the right consumables. Matthews inks and cleaners are the highest quality on the market and are
specifically designed to maximise the effectiveness of Matthews systems.

If required we will keep a record of your usage and contact you when we expect you to re-order to ensure no problems arise from low stock.

We also have fast access to a wide supply of spare parts to minimise potential downtime. Our internal team aims to progress your requirements as efficiently as possible from
initial enquiry through to installation and on-going consumable and service support.
