MARKHAM, ON, April 5 - PLM Group Ltd. announced today that it has agreed to purchase a new digital color production platform from Kodak. The NexPress 2100 SE will allow PLM to deliver both short run static and variable digital color applications to complement its digital product offering.
"This new variable color cut sheet press completes our current capital expansion project," said Marc Fortier Vice President of Digital Services. "Since the beginning of 2004 we have added cut sheet laser capacities and inkjet fire power with the VersaMark JetBlack imaging system. The NexPress addition allows PLM Digital Services to provide its clients with a broad range of solutions for variable imaging applications, both black & white and color. Over the last two years, we have completely re-engineered our product offering; this new digital colour platform will complement our current product offering and allow us to quickly migrate from basic static output to complex variable data using the same production device."
"Our customers' need for variable digital colour imaging will continue to grow as this technology becomes more and more affordable from a user standpoint," said Dave Stuart, PLM President and Chief Operating Officer. "PLM has always prided itself on anticipating client needs; and, as a result is always integrating the latest technological advancements into its production platform. Our commitment to providing our customers with the finest in digital imaging is clearly supported by our actions. In the late 90's, PLM launched PLM 1:1, and we recently purchased Mailer Magic and Optium to build our digital product offering. During the past two years, PLM has undertaken a major capital spending program for its Digital Services product line. The building phase of this program is now complete with the acquisition of the NexPress. All of these assets will now become the focal point of our new, state-of-the-art facility dedicated to digital services."
