Vomela Specialty Company Installs Two Inca Onset S40s Inkjet Printers

June 11, 2012
VALHALLA, NY—June 11, 2012—Fujifilm North America, Graphic Systems Division, is pleased to announce a notable “first.” With the recent addition of two Inca Onset S40s in its St. Paul, MN, location, Vomela Specialty becomes the first North American printer to own and operate the entire suite of Inca Onset large-format digital inkjet printers manufactured by Inca and distributed by Fujifilm.

Vomela operates 18 locations in the United States and Canada. The company has grown through a series of strategic acquisitions over its 60 plus years in business. Vomela’s C2 Imaging affiliate operates an Inca Onset S70 in its Denver location and an Inca Onset S20 at its Vancouver facility. The two new Inca Onset S40s installed in St. Paul join an already impressive lineup of Inca equipment, including two Inca Spyder printers and an Inca Columbia Turbo. All of the Inca Onset printers include automation to maximize throughput.

Multiple locations and state-of-the-art equipment at select locations give Vomela tremendous capabilities and versatility.

“Our goal is to meet all regional needs, and get any job done at any of our locations,” said Mark Auth, president of Vomela. “Even with the arsenal of equipment we had, we were struggling to keep up with the increasing volume of wide format work we were seeing.”

In order to achieve their goal of being the printer of choice for all of their customers, Auth and his team began the search for new wide-format inkjet printing equipment to meet the organization’s growing needs.

“Once we pick a piece of equipment, we stick with it, and the Incas were proven performers for us,” Auth said. Confident of the capabilities of the Inca line, he set his sights on the Inca Onset S40, the latest offering from Fujifilm and Inca Digital. “We don’t make an investment like this lightly; we did our due diligence and found that the Inca Onset S40 was the best out there, with the newest technology and by far the best quality.”

Vomela is a market leader in the recreational vehicle, fleet and race graphic industries, and over the last several years has gained notable prominence in the retail graphics and in-store marketing segments serving major retail brand owners like Best Buy, Target Corp., The North Face and GAP/Old Navy.

“A good portion of our point-of-purchase display work has switched from screen printing to digital,” Auth said. The shift has occurred largely because of the requirements for regional customization, and shorter run lengths. Five to seven hundred sheet jobs make sense now with the Inca S40 because of its speed and faster turnaround time. “The S40 allows us to produce these smaller jobs faster and gives us flexibility in pricing which benefits our customers and gives us a great competitive advantage,” said Auth.
