After 10 Years, QTI Asia-Pacific Dominates with More than 200 Customers
Press release from the issuing company
Multiple System Orders and Repeat Customers Are the Backbone of Success
Singapore – September 20, 2002 -- In testament to its rapid growth, QTI Asia-Pacific celebrates its 10th anniversary in September, having grown its customer base to more than 200 in its first decade of operation.
QTI Asia-Pacific’s dominance in the region is exemplified by the fact that in 1997 they received the biggest single order to date from a newspaper printer in Hong Kong. The order included 35 towers equipped with QTI’s Register Guidance System (RGS) IV Series X and 40 webs controlled by the Print-to-Process Controller (PPC) 3000X. Since then, the same customer added QTI’s RGS V Series N to a 7-tower double-width press and recently purchased an additional 32 towers of QTI’s RGS V Series N. QTI Asia-Pacific’s largest commercial web offset customer has installed 14 RGS IV Series X systems and 12 PPC 3000 X systems on a variety of presses. Multiple system orders and repeat customers have been the key to QTI Asia-Pacific’s success.
QTI Asia-Pacific has developed a strong presence in the Asian region by consistently meeting and exceeding customer needs. QTI Asia-Pacific is a branch of QTI, which is headquartered in the United States. "We are backed by the research and development capabilities of 200 engineers at QTI and by the organization’s financial strength," says David Mitchell, QTI Asia-Pacific’s manager. QTI has a 23-year history of delivering advanced technology to the web offset printing industry. The company’s innovative products and superior service have fueled QTI Asia-Pacific’s success. Further evidence of its strength and stability is the achievement of two important milestones in 2002: the first auxiliary equipment manufacturer to sell a color control system in Korea, and the sale of its 50th register guidance system in the People’s Republic of China. QTI Asia- Pacific customers are located in many countries in the region, including China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, and Taiwan.
QTI Asia-Pacific opened its doors in 1992 and expanded within one year, more than doubling its size. The additional space accommodates more equipment, training, and after-sales service. "We have seen a steady growth in business since we opened our doors," says Mitchell. "We attribute that to QTI’s leading-edge technology and the good relationships we have developed with our customers. It’s a combination we are very proud of."
