Prisco and Hostert Sign Exclusive Distribution Agreement
NEWARK, NJ—July 25, 2012—PriscoDigital has been appointed the exclusive distributor in the United States and Canada for the Hostert Automatic Loader designed for the HP Scitex FB7600/7500 industrial printers. PriscoDigital will market, sell, install, train and service the devices, along with ancillary products that are manufactured by Hostert-Pro in Germany.
The Hostert Automatic Loader provides a patented transport and alignment process whereby media is precisely aligned and setup for intake by the flatbed printer. This maximizes the printer’s efficiency, thereby saving on production and labor costs. The loader is compatible with both flexible and rigid media including foam, PVC, corrugated carton, thick paper as well as compressed cardboard.
Prisco will provide complete installation and training support to customers who purchase this state-of-the-art technology. In addition, all service and support functions will be provided by Prisco-trained engineers.
“Many customers are looking for technologies that they can immediately integrate into their business, and that will enable them to dramatically increase their efficiency and improve turnaround times, in addition to reducing production costs and saving on labor costs. They are also seeking ways to better differentiate their businesses from their competition,” remarks Steve Zunde, President of PriscoDigital. “The combination of novel technologies from our partners at HP, Esko and Caldera in addition to what we now are able to offer from Hostert will expand a print providers’ capabilities in a big way”
Joint Hostert managing directors, Gerd Wienen and Helmut Kraft, stated, “We are extremely pleased that Prisco will be our exclusive distributor in North America to represent and sell our digital printing and finishing solutions. With the strong national sales and technical support which Prisco has in place, together with their reputation for providing the very best service in the industry, we expect to see the Hostert brand name grow from strength-to-strength in the United States and Canada”
PriscoDigital is both an HP Scitex top-tier partner to commercial printers as well as an Esko and Caldera partner. The company is looking forward to talking with existing FB7500/7600 users as well as prospective new customers about automating their loading with the patented transport and alignment process which the Hostert-Pro can offer.
