Monday, February 24, 2003

Press release from the issuing company

New York City — One of the leading websites for investment and financial news and data has published an extensive interview with Yves Rogivue, CEO of MAN Roland Inc. The dialog focuses on advancements in imaging, with emphasis on MAN Roland’s DICOweb press. The interview appeared on The Wall Street Transcript (TWST)— a subscriber-based Internet service that provides executive-level insights on companies and industries. A portion of the feature can be accessed in a visitor section of the website at. . . http://www.twst.com/notes/articles/lxs044.html. "It’s important that decision makers in the financial community know about print’s capabilities as the leading communications channel," Rogivue said of the interview. "These are the leaders who run businesses and have the final word on how media dollars are spent. We want them to know that print is improving its position as the most powerful medium available." Toward that end, the MAN Roland CEO talked advanced printing technology with TWST, explaining the technology behind MAN Roland’s plate-free press. "DICOweb’s unique ability to image, erase and re-image jobs results in significant productivity gains for the printer who uses the new system," he said. "That level of responsiveness is particularly well suited to the type of shorter-run work that is becoming the norm in the printing industry, due to such trends as target marketing." Rogivue also discussed his company’s future strategies: "Our broader focus is on the widespread implementation Computer Integrated Manufacturing throughout the graphic arts. Yes, CIM is now a given in virtually every industry. But the graphics arts industry has always seen itself as a custom producer — a craft-driven supplier — in which each project is different from the rest. Now we have the technology to automate those variables and bring all of the advantages of CIM to our industry." In closing, the MAN Roland CEO discussed the staying power of the graphic arts. "Printing is and will continue to be preferred medium out there for many years to come," he said. "It’s browsable; it’s inexpensive; it’s tangible; it’s persuasive; and you can take it anywhere without the need for any type of playback device. So people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Steve Case may have their glory days. But Johannes Gutenberg continues to rule."
