Press release from the issuing company

Birmingham, United Kingdom - Headley Brothers has opted for the KODAK NEXPRESS SE2500 Digital Production Color Press with Fifth Imaging Unit and new KODAK Dimensional Printing Technology to expand their digital product portfolio.  The key investment is part of a company business strategy to build its digital arm and take full advantage of added value applications.

Managing Director Roger Pitt states, "Headley Brothers continues to invest in a steady programme of development.  The KODAK NEXPRESS Press has many attractions for our digital short run business.  Our customers' needs come first.   Our mission is to 'Listen, Learn and Grow'.  The innovation on the NEXPRESS Press can offer us huge potential to add value to our products and surpass our customers' expectations.   The fifth unit with Dimensional Ink will make a real difference in quality to the look and the feel of many of our printed products - magazine and booklet covers, promotional materials as well as direct mail.  It also gives us a full range of tints and expands our colour gamut.  We also selected Kodak's digital technology for the robustness of the hardware and modularity of the software.   In this fast moving age we need to know that we can expand going forward.  We know that the Kodak software will offer us multiple options for the future."

Headley Brothers is a large, independent printing company based in Ashford, Kent.  With over 260 staff, the fourth generation family run business will celebrate 130 years of success in 2011. Traditionally a magazine and journal printer, Headley Brothers now offers its customers a complete array of print and media solutions. Services include: online file delivery & approval, web-to-print ordering and monitoring, web and print design, digital, web and sheet-fed printing, finishing and fulfilment and mailing and subscriptions.

"We see ourselves as a 'responsive' company – responsive to our customers needs and responsive to innovation," concludes Roger Pitt.  "The Kodak relationship is a new one but we believe they have the equipment and the technology that will take us into the future."

Pat Holloway, UK Marketing at Kodak comments on the deal: "The power and versatility of the NEXPRESS Press  makes it the ideal system for Headley Brothers to base its new digital department around. It will help the company enter new markets and capitalize on the trend for short-run, high-impact, variable data print jobs. We anticipate that it won't be long before Headley Brothers sees an increase in revenue and enjoys a fast return on its investment."
