Domino Digital Printing Solutions was delighted to welcome Francisco Fernández, Director of Grafisoft, onto their stand during Labelexpo Europe 2019 when he came to sign the contract for a new distribution agreement with them. This new partnership will extend Domino’s presence in South America with Grafisoft becoming responsible for promoting sales of Domino’s N610i digital colour ink jet label press and K600i monochrome printers throughout Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
Founded in 2000, with headquarters in Chile and offices in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Argentina, Grafisoft specialises in delivering integrated technological solutions to increase productivity and reduce cost to label and packaging converters, industrial manufacturers, brand owners and commercial printers. Through established business alliances with many of the leading technology brands in the graphic arts and digital printing industries, Grafisoft supplies industrial automation products and services including an extensive range of printing technology, service and software solutions. Adding Domino to this impressive list, Grafisoft will now promote, sell, train, service and support Domino’s N610i digital colour ink jet label press and high speed K600i monochrome printers through their existing sales and service network.
Manuel Hernández, Business Manager for Domino Digital Printing Solutions in Iberia & Latin America, says, “The Latin American label market is performing well with pressure-sensitive labels predicted to grow by 11% in value (US $ million) from 2018 – 2022*. Domino continues to see increased interest in digital ink jet technology from label converters in this region, so we are delighted to be expanding our presence in South America. We took our first step in August 2018, when we extended our distribution agreement with Sunnyvale, who had been the exclusive distributor of Domino’s range of Coding & Marking products in Brazil for over 30 years, to also include our digital printing solutions products. This new partnership now represents an exciting opportunity to drive growth and sales in these additional territories. Grafisoft has always placed great emphasis on delivering exceptional customer experience and service. We are confident that this, coupled with their digital and colour management knowledge and expertise, will prove to be extremely successful for both of our businesses.”
Francisco Fernández, comments: “We believe Domino is the market leader in providing digital ink jet printers and solutions, with its long and highly established brand name, heritage and trusted global reputation. We are convinced that ink jet technology is the future for the industry and we look forward to working closely with Domino, to mutually develop and grow our businesses.”
Domino has been developing ink jet technology for over 41 years and now has more than 700 global installations of its piezo drop on demand ink jet systems, including over 200 digital colour label presses, demonstrating that this proven and reliable technology is trusted by customers around the world.
