Press release from the issuing company
YPSILANTI, MI – June 26, 2006 – Jetrion LLC, a leading supplier of inkjet printers, inks and custom systems, today announced the appointment of Jason Oliver as Managing Director, Europe. Oliver, formerly Director, Marketing and Business Development for Jetrion in the United States, will relocate to Germany to head the company’s fast growing ink jet business throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Dr. Kenneth Stack, President of Jetrion, noted, “Our business has been growing rapidly in Europe. We’ve had a strong demand for Jetrion’s advanced products and technology, particularly for our 3000 series UV inkjet printers in the European narrow web and packaging markets. The headquartering of Jason Oliver on the Continent reflects our intense commitment to meet the ink jet requirements of our expanding customer base in Europe.”
New MD Jason Oliver explained the latest initiatives in the region: “To better support our customers in Europe, we are rapidly signing up new distributors and hiring direct sales and service staff. As our customer base expands, we’ll be ready with outstanding support and new products.”
The process of building Jetrion’s sales and service capabilities and a network of distributors and partnerships throughout Europe is well under way. In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, TPF International recently signed on as Jetrion’s distributor and will host the site of a new demonstration center in Prague for the Jetrion 3000 series ink jet printers. Oliver will announce other new European distributorships in the coming weeks. Jetrion also will be partnering with its sister company, XSYS Print Solutions, in the narrow web market, and with its parent, Flint Group, in the commercial printing/mailing market.
Jetrion is a world leader in UV inkjet technology. The company’s flagship product, the cutting-edge Jetrion 3025 Inkjet System features breakthrough drop-on-demand (DOD) technology that delivers flexibility and print quality at a lower cost. The Jetrion 3025 inkjet printing system offers substantially more substrate printing capability than continuous inkjet (CIJ) or toner printing processes. The system is ideal for placement of durable images on high-gloss and film materials for production applications that require higher quality bar-coding, numbering and variable messaging on printed products. Co-developed with Graph-Tech AG of Switzerland, the Jetrion 3025 incorporates that company's proven MIC controller with image layout capabilities, simplifying production of variable codes and marks. The Jetrion 3025 provides the lowest running cost of available DOD marking printheads.
Jetrion offers a unique UV3000 Ink Program that provides customers with job- and substrate-specific UV inkjet solutions for its advanced 3000 Series UV inkjet printers. The program focuses the company's industry-leading UV ink technology, research resources and extensive, field-proven inkjet production experience on providing custom-developed UV inkjet inks for specific applications on virtually every type of film, foil or paper substrate.
