Major Commercial Printer Awards On-Demand Printer Contract to Xerox
Press release from the issuing company
ROCHESTER, N.Y.--Sept. 5, 2001--Following an in-depth competitive test, one of North Carolina's leading commercial printers is turning to Xerox Corporation for $3.5 million in digital production printing equipment, service and supplies.
AccuCopy of Greenville, Inc., Greenville, N.C., conducted an intensive evaluation of competitive offerings and decided to upgrade its digital printing fleet with state-of-the-art Xerox DocuTech 6155 printers and Xerox DigiPath scanners and software.
"We ultimately chose Xerox because the DocuTechs have sturdier and better engine technology, the offer was cost-competitive, and Xerox made it clear that they are willing to do what it takes to help make our business successful,'' said Tom O'Brien, president, AccuCopy.
AccuCopy reversed a decision to acquire competitive digital production printers - instead choosing to sign a three-year lease for Xerox DocuTech 6155s, several DigiPath Production Software licenses for managing the workflow, two Xerox scanners, and other software and accessories. "With this equipment, we can do things we couldn't have done before, such as higher quality, personalized marketing pieces,'' O'Brien said.
AccuCopy, founded in 1980, specializes in short-run printing and related services for print brokers, commercial printers, in-plant print shops, graphic designers and printing distributors who demand the highest levels of quality and service for their customers. Its annual sales of $7.23 million in 2000 place it on Form Magazine's annual ranking of the top 100 U.S. forms manufacturers.
