June 3, 2004 -- Domino Printing Sciences plc, one of the world’s leading ink jet and laser technology companies, has emerged victorious from the ‘print olympics’ of drupa 2004, having closed several key orders, obtained hundreds of strong leads and signed off an OEM agreement with Heidelberg. All of this, coupled with its inclusion on the drupa highlight tours, ensured that there was a constant flow of traffic to Domino’s stand in Hall 15, where the latest in its range of variable data printing solutions was on display.
Domino Marketing Manager Sheila Richardson is extremely pleased with the way in which Domino was received at the exhibition. “From day one, there was a great deal of activity around the stand and, from the quality of visitor enquiries we received, there seems to be a significant and genuine interest in our product solutions.
“I have read a number of articles both during and since drupa that have commented on the excitement and interest surrounding variable data printing at the show and, judging by Domino’s experience in Hall 15, I can certainly back this up. “
David Ellen, Director of Domino’s Commercial Printing Division, is equally upbeat. “drupa has been an enormous success for us”, says David. “Not only have we closed several key orders, including one for 15 of our C6000 outer case coding solutions, but the finalisation of our OEM agreement with Heidelberg at the start of the show has really laid the foundations upon which we wish to build further business. The opportunities for expanding upon agreements such as this are endless and we see this as being key to the future of Domino’s ongoing success.”
drupa also saw Domino sell one of its JetArray, continuous inkjet variable data solutions, to Inkfish in the UK. Steve Garbett, Inkfish Operations Director placed the order - which includes the possibility of two further units in the next fifteen months - having met with Domino’s sales team early in the show. Inkfish will use the JetArray primarily on a new polywrap line, as well as on an envelope inserter.
Additionally, DB Hess of Illinois, USA, ordered an equipment package comprising Domino’s Editor GT Controller, Jet Array continuous inkjet printer and a Bitjet binary printer – all of which were shipped directly from Domino’s stand after the exhibition. The equipment will be used on the company’s Sheridan 850 Saddle Stitcher to offer inside/outside inkjet printing capability, as well as the flexibility to print graphics, true type fonts and barcodes.
Another US based Domino customer, Royle Printing of Wisconsin, purchased two Bitjet 212 inkjet printers at the show, for use in a similar inside/outside inkjet printing application. The Bitjets will be used on a new Muller Martini Prima B Plus, 12-pocket saddle stitcher and will work in conjunction with the company’s existing Domino JetArrays.
