Presstek’s Expanded Product Portfolio Well Received at Ipex 2010
HUDSON, NH—May 27, 2010—Presstek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRST), a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, today announced that IPEX 2010 was its most successful trade show since drupa 2008. Presstek’s Ipex presence was highlighted by the worldwide debut of the Presstek 75DI digital offset press. The Presstek 52DI-AC and Aeon, a no preheat thermal CTP plate, were also both demonstrated for the first time at a European trade show during Ipex.
"The positive response from the global print community to the 75DI and our expanded digital offset portfolio, as well as to our expanded array of CTP solutions confirms that our strategic initiatives are in line with today’s market requirements,” said Jeff Jacobson, Chairman, President & CEO of Presstek. “I have said it before and I will say it again: The time is right for Presstek. Our expanded portfolio of solutions is ideally suited to address many of the business challenges faced by printing firms of all sizes around the globe. Our environmentally friendly, automated digital solutions offer expanded capabilities, delivering increased productivity and profitability in the rapidly growing market for short-run, high quality color printing.”
Presstek’s theme for Ipex was “Bridge the Gap for Greater Profitability,” highlighting the fact that Presstek DI solutions are the optimum solution for bridging the gap between short run digital and conventional offset printing. The validity of this theme has been demonstrated around the globe, as print service providers increasingly choose Presstek DI presses to solve this critical business and production issue. The theme also builds on a September 2008 InfoTrends study which states, “The sweet spot for DI printing is the range of 500 to 20,000 finished press sheets, making DI printing services the ideal solution to profitably fill the gap between toner-based and conventional offset printing.”
