xpedx to Show Expanded Technology Offering, Hold Drawing for Trip to its Technology Center

September 2, 2009
CHICAGO—Sept. 2, 2009—xpedx spent this year expanding its offerings with the equipment and services North American printers have asked for. It’s all going to be shown and discussed in the company’s largest-ever exhibit at PRINT 09 in Chicago, booth 1221.

It also will hold a contest for printers, awarding two U.S.-based commercial and/or in-plant printers an all-expense-paid trip for two to the new xpedx Technology Center in metro Cincinnati. The two-day trip is valued at approximately $2,500 per winner.

The company will demonstrate two new six-up and eight-up Ryobi presses that produce short-run color, specialty print and package printing. Ryobi’s new LED-UV curing unit, also demonstrated, substantially cuts power costs and speeds print job completion.

xpedx will also demonstrate and discuss ways printers can become more efficient and enter profitable new markets with job estimating tools, pre-press software, bindery and mailing equipment from top manufacturers.

In addition, services for mid-size and large printers including inventory management, kitting and fulfillment—as well as specialized expertise on everything from print shop efficiencies to new market opportunities—will be spotlighted.

“Printers are deepening ties with their most important suppliers to become stronger and more profitable,” said Steve Bowden, newly appointed executive vice president of sales and marketing for xpedx. “xpedx provides the services, equipment, supplies and collaborative support that printers need now.”

xpedx serves small, mid-size and large commercial printers, specialty and package printers, high-volume/data center printers, in-plant printers and publishers from more than 230 locations across the U.S., Mexico and Canada. xpedx has a large network of experts in every aspect of print production, print management, information technology, packaging and facility maintenance.

Here is what xpedx is demonstrating and discussing with printers at PRINT 09:

• Prepress. Efficient prepress is essential today. The xpedx booth will demonstrate and discuss how workflow and color management technology such as Kodak Prinergy Connect, Agfa:Apogee X Prepress, Xitron Xenith Sierra, Epson 9900 with SpectroProofer and EFI Colorproof XF v4.0 can help add value and efficiencies to printers’ businesses.

• Press. xpedx is the master distributor of Ryobi-branded presses and peripherals in the U.S. and now Canada. The 42-inch, eight-up RYOBI 1050-6 and the 31-inch, six-up 756G with power-saving LED-UV curing will make their North American debut at the xpedx booth. Both presses are six-color and fully automated with maximum speeds of up to 16,000 sheets per hour. xpedx and Ryobi say the presses will help printers significantly reduce makeready times, maximize operating efficiencies and expand into the package printing markets including flexo, corrugated and folding carton.
