Press release from the issuing company
GREENWICH, CT, July 20, 2005 – Komori America Corp., a leading manufacturer of printing systems and equipment, announced that it has joined forces with The Print Council, an industry coalition dedicated to building the market for print.
As a member of The Print Council, Komori will add its prestige and its resources to an ongoing campaign in support of print that includes many of the industry’s most notable businesses and organizations.
