June 9, 2003 -- Xpedx, the exclusive Ryobi U.S. Distributor, has named graphco of Solon, Ohio as the dealer for Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania. In making the announcement, Don Trytten, Vice President/General Manager, says that the addition of graphco to our dealership family is a significant forward step in improved representation and quality technical support.
For nearly thirty years graphco has built a strong reputation for sales integrity and outstanding technical service. In recent years graphco implemented the infrastructure to support digital prepress. graphco developed the DCPS (DIGITAL COLOR PRINTING SOLUTION) as a system that combines the creative aspects of the computer with the automation and quality output of a multi-color press. graphco has backed these installations with a technical service group that has over 200 years of combined experience.
Ryobi is one of the industry leaders in offset printing presses and prepress systems. Ryobi presses are highly regarded for their quality, durability, user-friendliness and advanced capabilities. As a division of International paper and Ryobi’s exclusive U.S. distributor, Xpedx provides a single source of support for the entire Ryobi line of offset presses. graphco is at the front line of this support. graphco will rely on Xpedx for training, parts, and technical support.
Chris Manley of graphco says that the move to Xpedx ushers in a whole new dimension to the evolution of our company. With the broad product line, we will bring many new and exciting products to our customers. The Ryobi DIXtra incorporates the latest Presstek DI Technology. This product combined with the graphco support structure will be the next step to higher profits for many of our customers.
