In these times of economic uncertainty, we sometimes must look around at other vendors to try to be more efficient and find savings anywhere we can. However, with TKM I need not look. They are the full package when it comes to doctor blades. As a plant Manager they make my job easy because the foundation that they have built with us is solid with great customer service, increased machine efficiency, cost reduction, expertise in the industry, and blade quality. If I were to rate TKM I would give them 5 stars….

Dominion Packaging has been using TKM products since 2006. We have since added new printing equipment and TKM has assisted us with perfecting our printing quality on all machines which include flexo, offset and gravure. We experienced a problem with our end seals on our flexo press and their experienced product specialist came into our facility, inspected the process, found the issue, suggested how to correct our problem and did just that. TKM doctor blades provide a superior wipe and longevity, along with a competitive price.

For almost half a decade we have relied on TKM’s enpurex to keep our press operations running smoothly. Both the quality of the product and customer service has remained consistent, even during supply-chain issues, making TKM one of the few vendors we ‘order-and-forget.’ We highly recommend both the enpurex and TKM!

TKM doctor blades have been crucial to effectiveness of our press by reducing stops to replace blades and saving us money by eliminating score line damage on our anilox. Their amazing technical support decreased implementation of TKM products while giving us confidence that any issue is quickly resolved.
