Zund America and MacDermid ColorSpan Forms Alliance
Press release from the issuing company
Dec 8, 2005, Phoenix, AZ – MacDermid ColorSpan, Inc., announced it has entered into a market alliance with Zund America, Inc., to co-promote digital workflow solutions featuring ColorSpan UV-curable inkjet printers and Zünd precision cutters for the display graphics market. As part of this agreement, ColorSpan will be displaying a Zünd precision graphic cutting system in their booth 1500 at the SGIA Digital Expo in Phoenix, December 8-10, 2005. Zünd will supply an “M” series cutter to MacDermid ColorSpan for their demonstration facility at its Eden Prairie, MN headquarters.
“Showing customers how much labor and materials they can save by printing directly to rigid display and sign boards with our line of DisplayMaker UV-curable inkjet printers is only half of the benefit of moving to a digital environment,” said Bruce Butler, Marketing Director of MacDermid ColorSpan, Inc. “The next logical step is to use the digital information to automate the cutting and finishing of the print to further reduce labor and improve throughput and accuracy.”
“We are pleased to enter into this market alliance with MacDermid ColorSpan” said Oliver Zünd, President of Zund America, Inc., “and are very impressed with the speed and quality of their UV-curable inkjet printers. We are convinced this alliance with ColorSpan will benefit customers in numerous ways. The ability to add shape to a printed media gives much more value to the end product."
