Presstek Broadens Worldwide Presence with DI Presses
Presstek's DI presses have received numerous honors worldwide, including "Product of the Year" from the British Association of Print and Communication (BAPC), "Golden Product" at PRINTING+packing 2006 in Slovakia and "Best Printing Quality" at the Digital Marzan 2006 trade show in Russia. The European Digital Press Association has also honored Presstek's 52DI performance and quality with an EDP Award.
"The productivity of the DI is so much greater than what we had before," said Dave Brown, owner of Contact Printing in Vancouver, Canada, who installed a Presstek 52DI in mid-March. "We can fit more work in the same amount of time, with the same operator - so we don't incur additional labor costs and are more efficient. With the DI's excellent quality, we expect to build new business and gain more business from our existing customers."
Tipolito Teco, a print shop in Brescia, Italy, already has benefited from its new 52DI, which was installed in January. For owner Guido Lovato, the press' advanced technology and compact size were selling points. "We are receiving very positive feedback from our customers," Lovato said. "They have definitely noticed the increase in quality."
Harry Körber, co-manager of Altstadt-Druck GmbH, based in Rostock, Germany, cites similar reasons for purchasing a DI. "The Presstek 34DI offers a powerful combination of faster turnaround times, higher quality color and increased efficiency, and its compact size was the perfect match for our limited space requirements in our prime downtown location," Körber said.
Petr Hendrych at MHA Outsourcing, one of the largest outsourcing services for business products and services in the Czech Republic, which owns a Presstek 34DI press said, "The purchase of the 34DI press enabled us to truly establish our own offset printing facility - we are no longer totally dependent on outsourcing - and it has also increased our finishing business."
