Press release from the issuing company

WAKE FOREST, North Carolina - Southern Lithoplate, Inc. (SLP) continues to expand the participation of Strategic Alliance partners to serve ever-growing numbers of existing and new customers in the commercial printing space. A new partnership just announced between SLP and Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for the printing industry, strengthens SLP’s broad portfolio of integrated systems that can help print providers operate more profitably.

“Xitron’s engineering team has been bringing prepress independence to the graphic communications market since 1977,” said Steve Mattingly, Senior Vice President of SLP. “Our two companies are committed to helping print providers achieve outstanding print results, significant cost savings and profitable growth. Xitron products make sure each job is ready to be output perfectly. This collaboration gives printers that operate new and legacy prepress devices excellent RIP, workflow and Tiff catcher options for high business performance.”

To bring total systems solutions to commercial printers, the SLP Strategic Alliance forms partnerships with key suppliers of equipment, software and consumables. Xitron engineers intuitive and affordable workflow management systems to drive digital output devices manufactured by the most popular vendors on the market today. Based on Global Graphics’ Harlequin RIP technology and Adobe’s PDF Print Engine, Xitron solutions streamline PDF preflighting, pagination, imposition and soft proofing. The company serves the printing industry with expert consultation and supports its Navigator Harlequin RIP, Sierra Adobe Workflow and other software with knowledgeable prepress specialists.

“We are excited to be able to complement SLP’s plate and CtP offerings,” said R. Patrick French, Major Accounts/OEM Manager for Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Xitron. “As a unified team, we can tailor a custom solution to fit both the customers’ requirements and budget!”
