MBO America Declares Inkjet Summit the 'Perfect Venue' for Showing Latest in Digital Finishing
MARLTON, NJ—May 20, 2014—MBO America—celebrating its 30th anniversary with numerous events, new programs, new headquarters and demonstration center, as well as the most comprehensive range of digital and hybrid postpress equipment in the marketplace—declared last month's Inkjet Summit, in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, a major success.
MBO America Director of Sales Lance Martin said that the Inkjet Summit was a perfect venue for the company to show off its latest successes and new equipment for digital and hybrid shops. Martin noted the well-targeted event allowed him to "reintroduce MBO to the digital inkjet crowd."
"MBO is one of the most well known, and well-established, finishing equipment companies in the world, and so the older printing firms don't realize that we are a completely different company today, having greatly expanded our product offerings over the past decade," explained Martin, whose advanced background in inline finishing, web controls, secure document finishing, press auxiliaries and system applications served him in positions with RR Donnelley, Gunther and MCSI.
Charlie Pesko, executive vice president, nGage Events, added: "We are thrilled that a finishing leader like MBO America has stepped up to further complete the circuit of technology being represented at the Inkjet Summit. MBO America joins the group of successful companies serving the burgeoning inkjet marketplace with great technology that certainly meets market needs."
Martin continued: "Given the success that MBO America had at this year's event, we are very much interested and looking forward to participating alongside the high profile attendees and presenters again at the next Inkjet Summit!"
The New MBO America: The Largest, Fastest, Selection of Traditional and Digital Finishing Solutions
The "new" MBO is the product of a decade of development and a highly precise acquisition strategy. The culmination of these investments will be shared during MBO America's first Open House in its new facility, scheduled for July of this year.
MBO America will showcase solutions covering digital finishing, diecutting, packaging, direct mail and more.
Beginning with Finishing
Martin relayed that he was able to demonstrate how companies like Philadelphia-based ANRO Printing/Direct Mail have benefitted from looking at its production workflows from the perspective of postpress; i.e., effectively, putting finishing first, at the Inkjet Summit.
"The advances made in our postpress systems and software influence the production flow tangibly," Martin told attendees. "For instance, the new MBO K8 RS is the world's fastest folder, capable of running 18,000 pieces per hour. With this machine, customers can maximize their press usage because job throughput times at the finishing stage are significantly reduced."
Beginning with Finishing will be the theme for MBO America's educational efforts, which brings attention to the impact of postpress on the bottom line.
"Teaching the market about these considerations is one of MBO America's top priorities this year," Martin explained. "If printers and finishers audit and subsequently change their production workflows without consideration for finishing, they are missing a tremendous opportunity to optimize the production process."
The New MBO America: New multi-functional headquarters
MBO America, one of MBO's worldwide offices, is in a new and expanded facility housing Americas headquarters, distribution, and a demonstration and education facility in the Philadelphia/New Jersey metropolitan area. Travel to and from the new building is easy, with numerous international and domestic airports a short distance away.
