GUANGZHOU, GUANGDONG, CHINA -- December 11, 2006 -- According to NPES, since 2001 China has experienced an annual average growth rate in printing sales of 14.65%. During this same period, the average annual growth rate for prepress sales is over 9%, while consumption of printing plates in China has almost doubled (97.7%) in the five year period. For printers in China, the CTP platesetter has become one of their most valuable production tools.
Located in Guangzhou China, one of China's largest cities and the capital of the Guangdong province, is Guangzhou YiFeng Printing Co., Ltd.. The mid-sized commercial printer, known for producing high-quality sales and promotional materials, uses the MAKO 8 platesetter to produce all their printing plates for daily production. After one year, the printer is now reporting a 35% increase in productivity and attributes the jump to violet CTP. For more information about ECRM and their offerings, go to www.ecrm.com.
Guangzhou YiFeng Printing Quote
Heading up the 14-year old innovative printing company is General Manager Mr. Li Weiwen. With a background in mechanics, the MAKO 8 appeals to Mr. Li due to its simple footprint design, and "cost-effectiveness."
"It's a real machine, simple, fast, direct, no tricky design, and very stable. I once output 300 plates in a day. The MAKO 8 is very well positioned in the market. I know because I was the first commercial printer to integrate a CTP workflow in the Guangzhou Providence. Our business has become even more popular because of it. And of course, our customers are very satisfied with our products and services." says Mr. Li, who is also the Executive Director of the Guangzhou Packaging & Printing Association.
