Press release from the issuing company

LONDON, UK - 6 October 2008 - Sun Chemical has hosted the first annual Rapide Conference for the thirteen members of its Rapide Distributor Network to share knowledge and industry best practice in order to increase further its effectiveness in the market.

The conference provided the platform for members to learn about the latest product launches and new innovations which are likely to be introduced in the future. The team shared the Rapide Network's vision and discussed how commercial printers could benefit from a high level of customer support delivered locally. Presentations were also made on how consumables could complement the ink business and key areas where the Rapide Network could add value to the market.

The Rapide Distributor Network, established in October 2007, consists of carefully selected partners to deliver Sun Chemical's leading technology products to commercial offset printers, with the added benefit of a quick, local, professional service.

Steve Bell, Sun Chemical UK's Commercial Business Director, said: "We view the members of the Rapide Distributor Network as an extension of our own sales team. Therefore it is important to share knowledge and experience, and provide an open forum for members to discuss current industry affairs. By working together, we can all work better for our customers."

"The concept of the Rapide Distributor Network is to offer commercial printers a long-term, trusted partnership with a local distributor, which not only delivers premium ink and consumables product requirements, but is also backed up by Sun Chemical's global expertise. We believe strongly that this 'Total Print Partnership' allows the distributors to provide their customers with a quick and reliable, customer-focused service and can demonstrate real benefits for their business, such as enhanced productivity and increased efficiency."
