Sigmajet, the Czech Republic manufacturer of wide format hybrid and flatbed UV printers, has today announced the transatlantic expansion of its business with the opening of a brand new US office. The company, formerly known as Grapo Technologies, was acquired by a group of private investors late last year, giving them the financial backing to significantly strengthen their position in the global wide format print market.
Strategically based in Washington DC, the new office will serve as the headquarters for the company’s US operations and its rapidly growing North American client base. The move was prompted by the installation of a second Shark printer - which churns out over 100m2 of high quality imaging per hour – at a North American customer, coupled with Sigmajet’s planned global expansion strategy. The move also supports the company’s drive for outstanding customer service, enabling the company to provide specialist local support to respond directly to customer demands quickly and efficiently.
Branislav Oravec, CEO, Sigmajet comments:’ We’ve had over ten years experience manufacturing high quality industrial UV flatbed printers, so we now have an established user base of more than 200 printers worldwide, with an increased amount of interest coming from the US.’
‘We are very pleased to become part of Washington’s vibrant and growing economy. Being serviced by three airports makes it a great location to support the whole of the North American market as well as being great for travel and lines of communication to head office in Europe’, Mr Oravec adds.
To support the North American market, Sigmajet is exhibiting on Booth 856 at the ISA International Sign Expo in Orlando later this month (March 22 - 24, 2012). On show will be the Gemini printer - with its 90m2/hour throughput, and its ten Xaar 1001 printheads featuring Xaar’s unique TF Technology™ – it is one of the highest performing products on the market today.
After the show, the printer will be installed for customer demonstration at the Washington office. Find out more about the Sigmajet printer range at www.sigmajet.com
