Wednesday, February 06, 2002
Hudson, NH, February 5, 2002 Presstek, Inc. has named Partners Graphic Support Service & Supply as a distributor of its computer-to-plate prepress products in Canada. Partners will sell Presstek's highly acclaimed Dimension Series of CTP Systems and Anthem thermal CTP plates. In addition, Partners will supply PEARLdry plates to users of the KBA 74 Karat digital press. According to Peter Bouchard, Presstek's worldwide sales manager, "Partners Graphic Support Service & Supply is a very progressive graphic arts supplier providing an extensive portfolio of digital imaging solutions as well as traditional prepress and pressroom products to Canada. We are pleased that Partners' large customer base will now have access to Presstek's Dimension and Anthem solutions." "We are very excited to be distributing Presstek CTP systems. We feel the environmental benefits of Dimension Systems and chemical-free Anthem plates, will be very attractive to the Canadian printing and graphics industry. The graphics industry, Canadian government environmental ministries, printing associations, and end-users, have worked hard to establish the Clean Print P2 program. Together, they are determined to reduce the use, generation and/or release of toxic substances into the environment. Presstek provides Partners Graphic Support with the first CTP technology in Canada that directly addresses these goals. Eliminating chemistry and the need for processing equipment, combined with ease-of-operation, makes Dimension and Anthem a winning combination. In fact, in just two weeks we have secured our first sale in Ontario," said David Leetham, Partner at Partners Graphic Support Service & Supply.
