FedEx Office to Install Commercial Production Equipment
DALLAS—To help solve customer challenges, FedEx Office is accelerating investment in its infrastructure by adding additional commercial production equipment. The company is deploying new grand-format inkjet printing devices to its centralized production centers across the country for producing rigid signs, banners, posters, point-of-purchase materials, oversized prints and more. Also, it is expanding its workforce by hiring more team members.
The new high-speed equipment scheduled for installation by spring includes Agfa Graphics’ Jeti 3020 Titan inkjet printers and Zund G3 M-2500 digital table cutters—all of which will be critical for high-quality, grand-format production print runs. The company will leverage this technology to produce a variety of signage and oversized prints for various customers, from big box retailers with multiple locations across the country to large corporations and small businesses.
FedEx Office was recently awarded a four-year contract from Boeing, the world's largest aerospace company and manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems. Effective March 1, FedEx Office will serve as Boeing’s primary print provider, producing critical operations, sales and large-format printed materials.
Since May 2010, FedEx Office has deployed nearly 8,000 new printing devices to its U.S. and Canadian locations and recently installed new automated finishing equipment at its offset printing facility.
