Press release from the issuing company
In Response to Customer Demand for POP/POS
Franklin Park, IL, - Tukaiz LLC, a leading marketing services production company, is one of the first American companies to install an Agfa M-Press Leopard, and the first to install the 5' x 10' Automated, a flatbed inkjet press designed to deliver the highest image quality on a wide variety of rigid and flexible substrates for both indoor and outdoor applications. Tukaiz invested in the new system to satisfy an increasing customer demand for POP/POS (POPOS) materials, such as in-store displays; vivid 2-D and textured posters; banners and window and floor clings. POPOS is an expanding market segment that promises continuing growth in years to come.
The innovative M-Press Leopard will give Tukaiz the ability to output in two days what traditionally takes screen printing two weeks, and with higher quality and at reduced cost. This will allow Tukaiz to provide faster turnaround, at a competitive price point and with the consistent quality for which Tukaiz is known.
The manual-loaded M-Press Leopard will accept substrates that include backlit material, paper, self-adhesive vinyl, fluted display board, metal plates, corrugated board, PVC and most POPOS materials, and in sizes up to 62" x 129". The M-Press produces extremely high image quality using its advanced print-shuttle and page wide print technology.
"The marketing production landscape is changing and this press will support the need to increase time to market and a higher quality of POP and retail signage, which are reported to be the fastest growing segments of the wide-format market. We see this trend proliferating based on our own customers' demand," noted Carl Rozkuszka, executive director of operations at Tukaiz. "The quality of the M-Press is the best of any in its class. It's revolutionary, producing the highest caliber products on the most sought-after substrates, quicker than ever before," Rozkuszka added.
Tukaiz had been evaluating the M-Press since seeing it at DRUPA earlier this year. Convinced of its quality construction, productivity and reasonable operating costs, Tukaiz purchased the M-Press in September 2012. Because the system is about the size of a bus, the company had to remove a wall to take delivery.
