AUCKLAND, New Zealand, February 13, 2012 – To expand its business opportunities, New Zealand's largest printing company, Kalamazoo Group, will introduce two sets of Fuji Xerox's 2800 Inkjet Color Continuous Feed Printing System that has the fastest output speed in the Fuji Xerox product line; 200 meters per minute in full-color duplex. The implementation is scheduled for August 2012.
Kalamazoo has seen an increased focus on transactional printing, and its ability to encourage consumers to make a purchase decision or boost response rates. To take the next step as a company – catering to its customer's evolving needs, as well as giving it the opportunity to expand into different print sectors such as direct mail, offset transfer, short-run publishing and newspapers –, Kalamazoo decided to introduce Fuji Xerox's 2800 Inkjet Color Continuous Feed Printing System. With the system's high productivity and quality, Kalamazoo will have the ability to print a digital document fifteen times faster than what it can do on its current graphic arts equipment.
“We have worked with Fuji Xerox for a number of years and built a close, strategic partnership with the team,” said Steve Dsouza, managing director at Kalamazoo Group. “Our business is based on a mutually beneficial relationship – they understand our goals and work with us to achieve them. The introduction of the two printing systems provides us with an opportunity to further grow the business and compete on a global scale.”
Launched in July 2011, 2800 Inkjet Color Continuous Feed Printing System is designed to benefit transactional and trans-promotional printers – those who require high-volume, personalized print jobs with short lead times – and is set to break through the existing barriers of cost, quality and reliability that have previously stood in the way of these print sectors.
“The 2800 Inkjet Color Continuous Feed Printing System produces pages quickly and reliably, saving costs in labor and waste, and producing high volume, high value jobs.” said Alistair Egan, product manager, Production Services Business Group of Fuji Xerox New Zealand.
The introduction of this machine, which represents an outcome of research and technological innovation, has strengthened the Fuji Xerox product line, as the New Zealand transactional print industry catches up to Australia and the United States.
