Xeikon and JV Imaging Enter Joint Referral Partnership Program

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Northborough, MA and Itasca, IL, September 9, 2008 – Xeikon, legendary for pioneering the first digital color presses, and JV Imaging Solutions Incorporated (JVIS), a leading distributor of best-in-class technologies in the labels and packaging market, today announced that the two companies have entered into a joint referral partnership program. Through the partnership, JVIS will be able to offer its clients the next step in the move to digital printing by offering the Xeikon 3300 and Xeikon 3000 digital label color presses. In turn, Xeikon will be able to further strengthen its position in the ever-expanding digital labels and packaging market.

"We are thrilled to enter into this partnership with JVIS. They are a leading distributor in the labels and packaging space," said Michael V. Ring, Vice President of Sales & Chief Marketing Officer of Xeikon's North American operations. "JVIS is renowned for its focused product approach, workflow specialization and highly talented staff. At the same time, Xeikon is widely recognized as a leader in developing and delivering high-end digital color printing solutions. We are confident that this combination of talents will result in even higher levels of quality and service to our clients."

JVIS specializes in understanding customer workflow issues and offers unique customized solutions in the labels and packaging space. They only represent innovative manufacturers that can offer the highest quality products, while still maintaining the lowest possible cost.

"By forming this mutually beneficial partnership with Xeikon, we will be able to offer the unique capabilities of the Xeikon technology to our customers", said Jim Vertullo, President of JVIS. "In addition, we will be able to reinforce our original commitment to our clients: seeking out and exploiting new technologies that raise the quality ceiling in the labels and packaging space."

The Xeikon 3300, which was unveiled at drupa 2008, represents a quantum leap in label print quality, offering true 1200 dpi at four bits per spot. With a top speed of 63 feet per minute and a monthly duty cycle of 2,300,000 feet, it is an extremely fast digital color label press, particularly suited for short to medium print runs and just-in-time jobs. The Xeikon 3000 represents the entry-level counterpart of the Xeikon 3300. It is a perfect fit for label converters who are eager to enter digital printing but do not need the high speed and productivity of the Xeikon 3300 just yet. It is also an ideal press for label converters wanting to focus on niche applications such as paperboard packaging or textile transfer printing. With a top speed of 31.5 feet per minute and a monthly duty cycle of 1,500,000 feet, the Xeikon 3000 allows label converters to master digital printing at a more leisurely pace. The Xeikon 3000 can be upgraded to the Xeikon 3300 once the user is ready to go to the next level.
