Agfa Graphics and xpedx to End Business Relationship

Agfa Graphics has also invested heavily in its Branchburg, NJ, plate manufacturing facility to upgrade operations, and is working closely with its regional distribution partners. These strategic decisions ensure that the company is prepared and has the capacity and capability to meet demand. The recent addition of Pitman’s product portfolio and technical expertise also means that customers have a unique opportunity to work with a powerful partner for conventional prepress products as well as solutions for the key growth segments in print, such as inkjet, packaging and digital imaging.

Agfa’s Customer Care division and hotline (800-388-2432) are available in the event customers require additional information during the transition.

    It never ceases to amaze me at the spin companies can put on bad decisions. AGFA buys Pittman solely because of the huge amount of money Pittman owes AGFA. So what better way to get the money than buy the company? But then in the same breath, Kodak and AGFA both cut off their noses to spite their face.

    Perhaps this will all be for the best as far as printers are concerned. Tie yourself to a single distributor and make that game work well. Those in bigger cities will have more options but lots of printers will need to pick a distributor first and then go with their plates, ink, etc. That is the wave of the future.
