Sandy Alexander Expands Its Out-of-Home Media Capacity
CLIFTON, NJ—April 6, 2011—Sandy Alexander, one of the nation’s leading, high-end commercial graphics communications companies, has acquired another Durst RHO UV inkjet production digital printer, a five-meter-wide 500R for “soft” out-of-home media. With the purchase of its fourth Durst UV inkjet digital printer, the company continues to expand its presence in the $10 billion market sector.
President and CEO Mike Graff said, “Our explosive growth in the wide- and grand-format business has been due to our industry leading color expertise. With the advanced color management workflow available with our printers, we can provide the highest color consistency and brand equity for our clients across a multitude of deliverables—from the smallest postcard to stadium wraps, all under one roof. And in today’s marketplace, clients are demanding brand consistency on a global basis.”
Graff also pointed out that the environmental credentials of the Durst printers make an excellent complement to Sandy Alexander’s leading environmental position in the industry including a carbon neutral wide & grand format facility and Sandy’s powering of its operations with 100 percent wind energy.
In addition, Graff noted, “With the most advanced color management, most effective and economical large-format imagers ever developed, combined with our cutting-edge environmental position, we have molded Sandy Alexander into the unquestioned leader in the out-of-home marketplace.”
The RHO 500R prints six-color, 600-dpi images on a wide variety of roll media at speeds up to 4,300 square feet/hour. It also is able to print three independent images from three separate job queues at the same time to achieve efficiency and handle a broader range of applications. The printer operates unattended, uses less ink than a comparable superwide platform, and minimizes operational cost due to its high productivity, advanced workflow and remarkable versatility.
