EFI Marks Its 500th VUTEk GS Printer Series Install with Placement at Gigantic Color
FOSTER CITY, CA—August 27, 2012—EFI announced that Gigantic Color of Dallas is acquiring an EFI VUTEk GS5000r five-meter, roll-to-roll UV printer. This is the 500th installation of the GS series of VUTEk printers.
“We are pleased to be adding this outstanding printer to our production floor,” said John Bowers, Sr., owner of Gigantic Color. “We were looking for a reliable, very fast work-horse machine and wanted to work with an industry leader, a company with the latest technologies and one capable of addressing every possible application need. EFI and the VUTEk GS5000r best meet those requirements.
“But we’ll also be able to offer higher resolution images than anyone in the industry, unique multi-layer white ink printing, plus the MCS Warranty in partnership with 3M™. With the new VUTEk printer, we can serve our existing customers better and faster, acquire new customers and develop new applications such as printing onto rolled styrene,” added Bowers
“Gigantic Color is the ideal location for the GS5000r,” asserted Scott Schinlever, senior vice president and general manager of EFI’s Inkjet Solutions. “We believe that Gigantic Color’s highly creative team will be able to do amazing things with this printer to serve its broad customer base in Texas and across the nation.
“And we are very proud to have them as our 500th installation of the highly successful GS product line, which has only been in the market for a relatively short period of time,” continued Schinlever. “Gigantic Color will also be able to take advantage of the capabilities of the Fiery proServer in streamlining workflow and color management.”
