(Taichung City, Taiwan) concluded a comprehensive contract for an Impremia IS29 29-inch UV sheetfed inkjet digital printing system and six offset printing presses. The following is an outline.
On 23 December 2016, Komori Corporation and Gain-How Printing concluded a comprehensive contract for an Impremia IS29 29-inch UV sheetfed inkjet digital printing system and six offset printing presses.
Gain-How Printing is the model for many printing companies in Taiwan, having won the 4th National Innovation Industrial Award from the Ministry of Economic Affairs. They have brought innovation to the printing industry of Taiwan by following a management policy of “Digitization, computerization and customization”.
Gain-How Printing completed relocation to a new factory in the Taichung area in 2013 and, since 2015, has continued to expand production by committing equipment at production facilities in southern Taiwan. In 2016, the company expanded its factories throughout Taiwan and focused on increasing equipment and showrooms. In addition, after achieving excellent results in Taiwan, it is also focusing on foreign markets. The company advanced into the Chinese mainland through a joint venture with a leading Chinese company, and it is actively expanding into international markets.
During this business expansion, Gain-How Printing has used Komori printing equipment throughout and is now operating nearly 20 Komori presses in factories all over Taiwan. Given the rapid changes in the printing industry, intensifying competition and digitization, Chairman Zhang of Gain-How Printing decided to conclude a contract for the Impremia IS29 digital printing system and six offset presses as the plan to increase production in the next term. The company will create a new printing future by strengthening offset printing and digital printing facilities.
Markets are changing with the times, and change that meets needs is required. Komori knows that the key to the success of a printing company consists of improving productivity through the combination of offset and digital and the flexibility to maximize the economic effect. Komori is working on these issues together with customers and will create a new future of digital printing.
