Matan Digital Printers appoints PriscoDigital as its North American distributor

Friday, September 05, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Newark, NJ, September 3, 2008 - Printers’ Service (Prisco) is pleased to announce that our PriscoDigital affiliate has been appointed North American distributor for Matan Super-Wide Format (SWF) digital printers, the inventor of Super-Wide Format technology. With this appointment, Matan is taking taken a major step towards penetrating the North American Offset Printing market. The synergy between Matan and Prisco, each a leader in Graphic Arts, promises to have a significant impact on the industry.

This development comes at a key juncture for both companies. Matan has greatly expanded its market presence as a result of the success of the Barak product line of SWF printers - the most advanced and versatile equipment available in the Super Wide Format market. Clients today enjoy the benefits of the 3.5 meter (11ft.) & 5 meter (16 ft.) widths and are able to run both rigid and flexible media on the same machine at throughput speeds up to 3400 sq-ft/hr. The rapid changeover between media makes these printers highly cost-effective, minimizing on ink consumption and media waste. Additionally, the use of UV-curable inkjet technology, combined with the use of recycled media make Barak particularly environmentally-friendly.

Prisco, a market leader in providing solutions to the offset printing market, is eager to bring these digital solutions to their existing customers, many who are now investing in inkjet technologies and applications, and will look to PriscoDigital as their partner in the super-wide market. This will allow Prisco to better meet its customers’ needs and further reinforce its position as the predominant supplier to the offset printing industry. Prisco has the largest sales and technical support infrastructure available. By servicing the market with over 100 sales and service professionals out of nine locations, PriscoDigital will provide both existing customers as well as new prospects with service and support second-to-none.

Steve Zunde, President of PriscoDigital, foresees great potential for this new union. He commented: "It stands to reason that when the best printer support services on the market are matched with the best technical solutions, you'll appeal to many printers who place quality, reliability and versatility at the top of their priority list."

For Mark Packman, Vice President of Sales for Barak in North America and Mexico, "PriscoDigital's appointment has come at the perfect time. "Being able to work with Steve Zunde and his skilled team is a major boost for us"

The strong synergy resulting from the Matan-Prisco connection will be presented to existing and potential clients at two keynote events this Fall: at SGIA'08 Matan's booth #1061 on October 15-18th in Atlanta, Georgia and at Graph Expo '08 on October 26- 29th in Chicago. Graph Expo event include a Barak3 system running live at Prisco's booth #4203, which will demonstrate to the industry the unique features and benefits of the Barak product line of technologically-advanced UV Hybrid inkjet systems.
