2nd Consecutive Win for MGI in Annual Industry Program to Honor Print, Packaging & Publishing Market Leadership
MGI 2016 & 2017 DPS Magazine “Readers’ Choice Awards
MELBOURNE, FL – For the second year in a row, MGI has received a DPS Magazine “Readers’ Choice” Top 30 Award for innovation in print technology. The leading monthly periodical addresses key trends and applications in the digital print, packaging and publishing market segments. Each year the publication’s dedicated readership community recognizes the most influential and significant vendors, products and services in the world of print.
“Our readers are interested in the latest technologies. They continuously choose some of the most technology forward vendors within the digital print and finishing, packaging, and publishing space,” says Tom Tetreault, editor-in-chief/publisher, DPS Magazine.
Using its website metric system, DPSmagdirect.com, the magazine calculates readers’ interest in companies throughout the year. This is done via requests made on print and Web editorial and advertisements as seen in the magazine, on the website, or in DPS Magazine’s weekly eNewsletter.
“We’re happy to see MGI return to the Top 30 list this year as the company continues to offer innovative solutions for the graphic arts,” adds Tetreault.
Year in Review
The announcement of the award appeared in the yearly retrospective November issue of the magazine. In 2017, MGI standardized the implementation of the intelligent and adaptive AIS SmartScanner print registration on the entire JETvarnish 3D Series of digital enhancement presses.
It also greatly expanded its global alliance with Konica Minolta to provide expanded, international service and support to customers. U.S. product launches included: the Meteor Unlimited Colors Series of integrated, inline digital printing & foiling production presses; the JETvarnish 3D Evolution, world’s first B1+ size digital enhancement press and the JETvarnish 3D Web, world’s first roll-fed digital label & flexible packaging enhancement press.
Kevin Abergel, MGI Vice President of Marketing & Sales, stated “We’re very proud of our 2nd straight DPS “Readers’ Choice” honor because it reflects the collective voice of experts, users, operators, print buyers, brands and executives across the entire spectrum of the print, publishing and packaging industries. This distinguished accolade is especially important to us since it highlights the industry contributions of our entire company, as opposed to just a specific product or individual application.’
“We greatly appreciate the valuable work of DPS Magazine to inform and educate the marketplace. Our deep thanks goes to their entire readership community. We look forward to continuing our tradition of digital print innovation in 2018.” concluded Abergel.
