DigiGraphics Changes Name, Purchases Facility and Buys New Equipment
MINNEAPOLIS—July 22, 2014—As an Imagine! Print Solutions-owned company since January of 2012, DigiGraphics has experienced tremendous growth, with sales increases of over 200 percent. To continue that success, and better align with Imagine!'s customers and prospects, and serve local and regional clients, DigiGraphics is changing its name to Imagine! Express Minneapolis and adding complete commercial printing and direct mail capabilities to its already impressive lineup of equipment and services.
Imagine!Express has purchased an 80,000-square-foot facility, which is next door to its current location near downtown Minneapolis, to accommodate the additional space required to install more production equipment. The company will be adding a new KBA 41" press with fully automated quality control and vision inspection systems, a six-color, small format Heidelberg, the latest Xerox iGen 150, and all the supporting equipment in bindery and mailing needed to become one of the predominant companies in the area. These capabilities will complement the already robust offerings in large- and grand-format UV printing, framing and interior décor solutions. The upgrades, additions and enhancements will create a single facility, and Imagine! Express Minneapolis will be a powerful local presence, driven by the strength of a thriving national company.
Bob Lothenbach, Imagine!'s president and founder said, "This name change, and more importantly this major investment we are making, will provide local clients, which made Imagine! what it is today, a company focused on service and quality, driven by technology. In addition, we would like to see Imagine!Express locations throughout the country, helping support our major clients in their local markets. This is the beginning of that vision."
