Collaboration creates affordable digital label and print-on-demand packaging solutions for the North American Market

Ramsey, N.J. – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announced a strategic partnership with Memjet. Combining Memjet’s printing technology with the hardware expertise of Konica Minolta has resulted in the creation of digital inkjet print and labeling solutions that deliver the speed, quality and affordable cost of ownership that print and label providers need to succeed in today’s changing markets. These solutions will be showcased at the upcoming Labelexpo Americas 2018 (Konica Minolta, booth 5721), at PRINT18 (Konica Minolta, booth 1611 and Memjet, booth 1804), and SGIA EXPO 2018 (Konica Minolta, booth 3769). 

“The responsive nature of digital interactions has reshaped customer expectations,” said Kevin Kern, senior vice president of business intelligence services and product planning at Konica Minolta. “Today’s consumers expect sophisticated, customized communications each time they interact with a brand — even smaller brands with modest budgets. The collaboration between Konica Minolta and Memjet empowers that type of connection, making economical, high quality, customized printing a reality for print and label providers of all sizes.”
