“Commercial printers are looking for ways to…offer their clients more diversified products and services.”
EFI and Heidelberg USA have announced a new agreement under which Heidelberg will distribute the Vutek GS series of superwide digital printers to the commercial print market in the US. Under the agreement, Heidelberg will distribute EFI’s Vutek GS2000, GS3200, and GS5000r as well as the inks, parts, consumables, accessories, and upgrades related to these printers. Heidelberg will also provide customer and technical support for the Vutek GS series of printers including installation and training.
"We're excited to enter into this distribution agreement with Heidelberg USA. “Commercial printers are looking for ways to distinguish themselves and offer their clients more diversified products and services. Now we can reach those companies through a broader network,” says Frank Mallozzi, senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, EFI.
Heidelberg USA will house a GS3200 at its North American Print & Packaging Technology Center for demonstrations. The machine will be integrated into a complete Prinect workflow and will be color managed by Heidelberg’s Prinect Color Toolbox, which has recently been awarded the IDEAlliance G7 System Certification.
“Wide- and superwide-format printing are high-growth opportunities and Heidelberg has the right workflow, color management, service and Saphira consumables expertise needed to integrate these technologies into a print production environment,” says James Martin, senior vice president, marketing, Heidelberg USA.
