Qualtech Digital Adds Kodak Nexpress Digital Color Press
ROCHESTER, NY—June 25—With the purchase of a Kodak Nexpress 2100 Digital Production Color Press, Qualtech Digital Inc. of Rochester, NY, is ready to take the services it offers to “the next level.”
“We looked at several digital presses before selecting the Kodak Nexpress 2100 Press,” said Lisa Giglio, President, Qualtech. “We do quite a few shorter run and quick turn projects. We’re also looking at entering the world of variable data printing, and the Nexpress Press has what we need to take our business to the next level.”
Qualtech was launched in 1986 to provide film outputs to advertising agencies and printers, plus produce blueprints for engineers. The coming of the digital printing age placed the company at a crossroads and led to its emergence as a digital print provider for advertising agencies, healthcare companies and colleges. Qualtech also provides wide format printing services for posters and vinyl banners.
“The quality of output from the Nexpress 2100 Press is a big plus. We were also impressed by the fact that we will be able to save money operating the system and substantially reduce our down time,” said Gerald Giglio, Vice President, Qualtech. “Many of the parts on the Nexpress Press can be replaced by the operator. They are trained on the system to handle this type of maintenance, which will cut our costs to operate the system.”
The Nexpress 2100 Press meets a variety of needs from entry level to very high volume environments. Customers are able to upgrade presses as they grow their businesses with options to select desired paper capacity and increase processing capability.
Lisa Giglio said another reason Qualtech selected a Nexpress Press is the chance to get involved with the Kodak MarketMover Network. “I foresee the MarketMover Network helping us expand our business beyond New York State,” she said.
The Kodak MarketMover Network connects print providers to an expanded pool of marketers who need printing services. Printers joining the KODAK MarketMover Network, powered by Four51, have access to the latest technology to build partnerships with other printers, expanding the opportunities to efficiently outsource projects. All Kodak solutions providers can join the MarketMover Network. Kodak Nexpress Digital Production Color Press owners will be the initial suppliers, but the MarketMover Network will expand during the next year to include other KODAK solutions providers as well. The MarketMover Network will help printers increase margins and operate their businesses more efficiently.
