Press release from the issuing company
ANDOVER, MA, March 7, 2007 -- Standard Finishing Systems has been honored by Xerox Corporation as the "2006 Outstanding Customer First / Service Support Finishing Partner of the Year." Presented for excellence in customer and service support, this award recognizes the significant contribution of partners to the success of Xerox and its customers. Standard has now been the recipient of a "Partner of the Year" award for four consecutive years.
"Standard’s contributions in 2006 were key to helping Xerox achieve our annual partnership sales objectives," said Jerry Murray, Vice President, Product Marketing, Production Systems Group, Xerox Corporation. "They also helped us increase customer satisfaction with excellent service support."
Standard offers a range of in-line and off-line feeding and finishing solutions in cooperation with Xerox, but the award was based primarily on the outstanding worldwide success of the Horizon ColorWorks Series of in-line bookletmakers for the popular Xerox DocuColor digital color presses.
"Standard shares this award with Horizon International, our partner in Japan, who had the engineering vision and expertise to develop an innovative all-in-one finishing solution for digital production color," said David Reny, managing director, Standard Finishing Systems. "Horizon engineering, Xerox color printing technology, and Standard’s comprehensive sales, marketing, and service support continue to be a winning combination for customers."
The ColorWorks Series of bookletmakers perform scoring, bleed trimming, stitching, folding, face trimming and stacking, all in-line, with end-to-end system automation and touchscreen control. The ColorWorks line is the product of a close engineering alliance between Horizon International and Xerox. It was designed from the ground up to meet the unique requirements of in-line digital color document production.
Standard Finishing Systems has been a Xerox Finishing Partner since 1992, offering a range of paper handling and finishing solutions that compliment Xerox black-and-white and color printers and presses. Solutions range from Hunkeler unwinders, rewinders, cutters and stackers for continuous-feed printers, to in-line and off-line Horizon folders, bookletmakers, and perfect binders. Horizon has worked closely with Xerox on a global basis with product development projects, marketing and field technical support.
The award was presented to Standard Finishing Systems in Rochester, New York on March 6, 2007.
