NUR Macroprinters Installs 300th NUR Fresco Wide-Format Inkjet Production Press
Press release from the issuing company
LOD, Israel--Sept. 27, 2004-- NUR Macroprinters, a leading supplier of wide-format inkjet production printing systems for the out-of-home advertising market, announced that the 300th NUR Fresco wide-format inkjet production press to come off its manufacturing line - a NUR Fresco II model - has been installed at Vincent Printing in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Vincent Printing is one of the largest screen printers of billboards in the United States. With an equipment roster that includes printers from a variety of suppliers, including a NUR Blueboard HiQ superwide printer, the company considers itself a true, one-stop print shop equipped to handle the production of the widest range of out-of-home advertising materials.
According to Doug Casey, co-owner of Vincent Printing, when the need to expand his production capacity recently became apparent, he approached NUR Macroprinters. He chose the NUR Fresco as it is known worldwide for its speed, productivity and reliability and the new NUR Fresco II models are even faster and more versatile than the original versions.
Commented Casey, "We have other wide-format printers in-house that can handle paper for billboards but we believe versatility is important in this business. We therefore chose the Fresco to extend our capacity."
As a longtime NUR Macroprinters customer, Casey has followed the company's activity over the past few years and stated that "the new management team, both in Israel and in North America, has done a good job of turning the company around. Once again the company is moving in the right direction. Today we consider their customer service and technical support to be excellent and the response time for solving problems, when there are any, is excellent as well."
Casey plans to use the new NUR Fresco to increase production capacity in several areas, including the production of transit advertising materials - especially bus kings, queens and tails printed on PVC - and transit shelters.
