EFI Installs 500th VUTEk GS at Gigantic Color

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

EFI (Electronics For Imaging, Inc.), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced that Gigantic Color of Dallas, Texas is acquiring an EFI VUTEk GS5000r five-meter, roll-to-roll UV printer that delivers POP quality yet prints at high speeds required to produce billboards and banners. This is the 500th installation of the highly successful GS series of VUTEk printers.

"We are pleased to be adding this outstanding printer to our production floor," said John Bowers, Sr., owner of Gigantic Color. "We were looking for a reliable, very fast work-horse machine and wanted to work with an industry leader, a company with the latest technologies and one capable of addressing every possible application need. EFI and the VUTEk GS5000r best meet those requirements. But we'll also be able to offer higher resolution images than anyone in the industry, unique multi-layer white ink printing, plus the MCS Warranty in partnership with 3M. With the new VUTEk printer, we can serve our existing customers better and faster, acquire new customers and develop new applications such as printing onto rolled styrene."

"Gigantic Color is the ideal location for the GS5000r," said Scott Schinlever, senior vice president and general manager of EFI's Inkjet Solutions. "We believe that Gigantic Color's highly creative team will be able to do amazing things with this printer to serve its broad customer base in Texas and across the nation. And we are very proud to have them as our 500th installation of the highly successful GS product line, which has only been in the market for a relatively short period of time. Gigantic Color will also be able to take advantage of the capabilities of the Fiery proServer in streamlining workflow and color management."

EFI's Schinlever will be presenting the Gigantic Color team with an award during an on-site luncheon at the Gigantic Color plant on August 28, 2012.
