INX, Triangle Digital create Triangle Digital INX Co.

Press release from the issuing company

Schaumburg, IL - February 17, 2006 - Sakata Inx worldwide operations today announced an agreement with California-based Triangle Digital LLC, forming Triangle Digital INX Co. (TDI) to offer digital inks and application services to customers throughout the world in conjunction with INX International Ink Co. INX International and newly formed TDI are both subsidiaries of Sakata Inx. According to INX President and CEO Rick Clendenning, a key focus of the new enterprise will be smoothing commercial and packaging printers' expansion into the digital market, enabling them to "hit the ground running" in terms of digital products, print quality and productivity. "TDI is a win-win-win combination for customers, both short- and long-term," Clendenning states. "For one, Triangle Digital LLC is an established, recognized leader in the digital print arena, with considerable technical know-how, digital parts & servicing, as well as ink products. It's an excellent fit with our own INX International offerings and customer base. And, thirdly, Sakata Inx' global reach and raw material sourcing, its R & D capabilities and track record in developing all types of ink, bode well for future product advances with more digital ink systems precisely engineered for this market - even as new digital press technologies evolve. "In short, TDI brings customers the best of both worlds … to help printers deliver the full range of traditional commercial as well as digital print capabilities. And that's not all." INX "Team" approach ideal for helping commercial and packaging printers respond to unique customer needs. "It's easy to understand many commercial printers' interest in participating in the digital market's rapid growth," adds Brad Kisner, President of Triangle Digital LLC. "But it's also important to understand what's driving that growth. "The rapid increase of niche market products, customized and tightly targeted promotions - resulting in shorter print runs and faster turnaround - make streamlined digital systems vital to accessing this business," Kisner explains. "Although this brings printers a new (and typically, higher margin) revenue stream, the investment is still considerable. And it's not as simple as just installing a digital press and starting to run jobs." "This is where the combined, practical pressroom know-how that TDI offers can provide a critical edge," Clendenning asserts. "Current INX customers appreciate the easy, direct access we give them - not only to sales reps, but to application specialists, product development and technical support personnel. Readily available, multiple-discipline assistance can be crucial to making new operations productive and profitable, quickly." Application-specific expertise helps printers make digital investments pay. "Going forward," Clendenning continues, "key people in INX' commercial printing group will be working closely with Triangle Digital specialists, strengthening not only digital application expertise, but mutual insights involving both processes. While it's vital for printers to have application-specific know-how at their fingertips, it is also important for 'the left hand to know what the right hand is doing'; and vice versa. "This kind of combined TDI know-how and servicing capability will prove to be invaluable as printers develop and solidify both types of business in their operations."
