Graphic Enterprises Says North American newspapers investing again
Press release from the issuing company
North Canton, Ohio – 11th July 2003: Graphic Enterprises, Inc. (GEI) has announced significant new sales for Q2 2003, and states that for it, the US newspaper economy appears to be out of the doldrums.
“We have made sales across our full range of workflow, OPI, Internet proofing, hard copy proofing and ink presetting solutions,” says Bob Behringer, GEI’s president.
North American sales include Ink Pre-Setting to Florida Today and Miami Herald; 15 Black Magic color proofing solutions, eight of which have been supplied to The Globe and Mail, Canada; Internet Proofing to the Daily Advertiser, South Louisiana; and the Gainsville Sun; PuzzleFlow PDF workflow to Publishers Printing; and PageCheck soft proofing to the Indianapolis Star.
Outside of North America, GEI sells its products through partners. Its international sales are continuing to grow and the company reports new business from Seoul Systems, North Korea for its GUSS output management system; and multiple sales of Black Magic color proofing systems to First Graphics, South Africa and Asahi Systems, Japan.
“We have a hard-earned reputation for being willing to provide robust, non-standard solutions and interfaces,” adds Mr. Behringer. “It’s this focus on customers’ and their needs that I believe helps us maintain sales when the economy is tough. We were very busy during Nexpo in Las Vegas, and expect the result of that to be strong sales in this next quarter.”
