Contex Americas Reports Strong Sales in Early Q3

Friday, August 17, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Contex Americas, a division of Contex A/S, the world's leading developer of wide format scanning and imaging solutions, today reports that its early Q3 sales are up - more than 1.5 times that of the same time period in 2011. The company attributes this success to the recent launch of the updated HD Ultra, the market's fastest and most productive wide format scanner. The HD Ultra incorporates several new, customer-requested features that improve overall throughput by at least 30%. These new enhancements, along with attractive pricing and warranties, make the HD Ultra a highly demanded product.

"The strong sales this quarter are directly related to the success of the HD Ultra, as well as to our new distributor channel sales strategy," comments Steve Blanken, GM, Contex Americas. "With the HD Ultra, we took the world's best scanner and made it even better. This new technology has truly energized the wide format scanning market."

"We've just completed our month-end for July, and these are the highest Contex sales we've had since 2008," comments Doyle Cryer, Wide Format Specialist, Promark, a value added distributor. "Contex's wide format scanners are well-priced and backed with great warranties. It is truly a risk-free purchase of the highest-quality scanners in the industry."

Ideal for scanning maps, drawings, posters, or fine art, the HD Ultra is the newest scanner in Contex's suite of wide format scanning solutions. This scanner incorporates several customer requested features, including scanning speeds of 8 inches per second in color, new color spaces, and 48-bit color processing. The HD Ultra's color reproduction is unparalleled, giving users unprecedented control over scanned images.

The HD Ultra has received several industry accolades, including the Reader's Choice award from Wide Format Imaging magazine and 'High Honors' from Buyer's Lab Inc.
