OKI Expands proColor Distribution Network in the Western U.S.

Monday, July 09, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

OKI Data Americas announces the addition of a highly-regarded West Coast printing distributor – K. Wilson & Company – to the proColor division’s expanding network throughout the U.S. and Canada. K. Wilson & Company now offers select models from the OKI proColor Series of high quality, commercial-grade, digital color printers – including the OKI pro900/905DP Digital Envelope Presses – as part of its broad range of pre-press, printing, finishing and bindery products.

K. Wilson & Company selected the OKI proColor printers to supplement its existing product line based on the devices’ impressive color printing capabilities, durability, ease of use, reasonable cost of ownership, and strong return on investment. With the addition of the OKI pro900/905DP digital printers, K. Wilson & Company is stepping outside the realm of traditional offset printing, helping expand the company’s customer base to include those who routinely engage in direct mail campaigns. The OKI proColor products represent K. Wilson & Company’s first foray into the digital printing – an industry evolution the company was excited to embrace.

According to the K. Wilson & Company’s Founder and President, Ken Wilson, “The addition of the OKI proColor digital color printers to our line represents our company’s desire to supplement our more traditional printing product portfolio. We are embracing new opportunities and targeting new markets, and the OKI pro900/905DP digital envelope printers help us reach these audiences with a compelling value proposition.”

Based in South San Francisco, CA, K. Wilson & Company provides sales, service and parts for new and used printing, bindery, finishing and mailing equipment within the graphic arts industry. Established in 1972, K. Wilson & Company serves Northern California, Northern Nevada and Hawaii, and has a reputation for being expert consultants.

“OKI is pleased to have K. Wilson & Company join the expanding proColor distribution network in service to the Western U.S. market. The proColor brand’s growth within the Flexographic, and graphic arts and production markets is impressive, and is a direct result of both the line’s superiority and the strength of our distribution network partners, like K. Wilson & Company,” said Rich Egert, General Manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group for OKI Data Americas.

The OKI proColor Series is an original and comprehensive line of printers that offers cost-effective digital printing solutions to the marketplace. These printers deliver professional, production-quality color output and color accuracy powered by embedded EFI Fiery and PANTONE support on select models. Different products and configurations offer specialized media flexibility including envelopes, continuous feed and variable data. All are revolutionizing digital printing at their respective price-points.

The OKI pro900/905DP Digital Envelope Presses deliver high–quality full-color envelope printing with variable data and variable graphics in a single pass, boasting print speeds of up to 36 ppm Color and 40 ppm Mono#. In addition to envelopes, the pro900/905DP handle paper stock up to 330 gsm, plus cut sheets up to 12 inches by 18 inches and banners up to 47.24 inches in length. In addition, these products are backed by a two-year on-site warranty#.

In addition, enhanced OKI proColor Financing options are now available to provide even greater serviceability and support within the OKI proColor dealer network. In turn, proColor dealers will have the flexibility and the ability to structure deals that meet each customer’s unique needs. Additional details and information about these financing offers will be available online or by contacting an authorized OKI proColor distributor.

All OKI products are built on parent company OKI Data Corporation’s history of leadership and innovation. Most of OKI’s color printing solutions feature Single Pass Color as well as proprietary digital LED and HD Color technologies. These technologies allow OKI Data Americas to manufacture products that require fewer moving parts for increased reliability and outstanding color output quality.

OKI provides live#, toll-free technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, with agents based in North America. In addition, OKI live chat feature is available to customers within the US and Canada seeking online support on weekdays during normal business hours within the Eastern time zone.
