xpedx Increases Commitment to Capital Equipment Strategy
Two xpedx Facilities Ensure Prompt Service, Showcase Equipment
Bill and Don will build regional xpedx sales teams that will be based in local markets but supported by a 32-member staff stationed at the company’s National Equipment Center (NEC) located at xpedx headquarters near Cincinnati, Ohio. More than 125 xpedx service technicians and managers who reside in local markets are centrally dispatched from the NEC to ensure prompt service for all equipment the company sells.
To showcase its equipment offering, the company will open the xpedx Technology Center in April this year. Providing U.S. print professionals with a single location where they can learn about, test and purchase new equipment and technologies covering all stages of offset and digital printing, the 11,000 square-foot facility will house pre-press and workflow technologies, Ryobi presses, as well as post-press/bindery equipment and technology from top manufacturers.
