Xeikon, a manufacturer of digital printing equipment, says it will offer its customers complimentary first-time memberships to the Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI). The company says it has entered into an agreement with TLMI to make the offer to customers who acquire a new Xeikon 3300/3000 press.
“Our mission is to provide our members with the tools and resources needed to help them grow their businesses,” says TLMI President Frank Sablone. “With this generous offer from Xeikon, we’ll be able to share our knowledge base with an expanded group and play a role in strengthening the industry overall.”
According to Michael Ring, VP of sales and chief marketing officer for Xeikon, the arrangement between Xeikon and TLMI was implemented “to help companies within the tag, label and packaging industries fine tune their business initiatives in a shifting economy. This offer will give new Xeikon 3300/3000 customers a wealth of resources to tap into.” As a TLMI member, companies have access to TLMI’s financial ratio and benchmarking analysis, compensation analysis, quarterly trend reports, and a subscription to its bi-monthly newsletter. In addition, converter members are invited to attend TLMI's Converter and Annual Meetings, which are held at locations throughout North America.
“At Xeikon, we are constantly looking for innovative ways to provide our expanding customer base with the resources necessary to help their businesses succeed,” says Ring. “By helping our customers maximize their potential, we are invigorating growth throughout the industry as a whole. We are thrilled to embark on this new arrangement with TLMI. The organization’s vast understanding and expertise in the narrow web tag, label, and packaging industries makes them an outstanding partner.”
The Xeikon 3300 is a toner-based digital rollfed press with a top speed of 63 feet per minute. The Xeikon 3000 represents the entry-level counterpart of the Xeikon 3300.
