Tod Leonard, president of The Printing Plant, and his team looked closely at several new digital presses in the market, evaluating equipment costs, running costs, print quality and service agreements. They had samples of current job files printed for review by several OEM companies and press manufacturers, and after all was said and done, they chose the Nilpeter digital UV inkjet unit.
“The improved speeds and web widths available with the Panorama allowed us to quote and win significant new business," says Leonard. "One of our new customers has over 850 prime labels they are in the process of redesigning, and they specified that we would only be awarded with the order if we would commit to printing the labels on the new digital Nilpeter press. We are thrilled to have the new Nilpeter Panorama and look forward to not only gaining new business from new customers, but also moving some of our current flexo jobs over and becoming more efficient."
Paul Teachout, VP of sales and marketing for Nilpeter USA, is pleased to continue the partnership with The Printing Plant, dating back to the 2011 with the installation of a 10-color FB-4200. “We are extremely pleased to continue our partnership with The Printing Plant, and very happy to provide them with the Panorama digital press line – a perfect fit for their needs," says Teachout. "This marks the first Panorama installation in North America and it has gone very well. We look forward to the continued growth and success in our cooperation with The Printing Plant."
