Presstek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRST), a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, has signed a distribution agreement with Adler Gruppe & Addxxion, a leading distributor of graphic arts solutions in Egypt. Under the terms of the agreement, Adler Gruppe will distribute and service Presstek’s complete product portfolio, including thermal plates, CTP solutions and DI® digital offset presses.
Mohamed Shoukry, CEO of Adler Gruppe, says, “Presstek systems fit perfectly with our tradition of supplying customers with solutions that enhance quality, streamline production, and reduce costs. Presstek’s products will also help our customers establish more sustainable working practices – something that is becoming increasingly important in our local market.”
Jack Dean, Presstek Area Sales Manager, states, “The partnership with Adler Gruppe means more print service providers in the Egyptian market can take advantage of our cutting-edge solutions. This collaboration will significantly bolster our presence in the region, and enable our customers to capitalize on Adler Gruppe’s vast expertise and experience. Presstek’s chemistry-free solutions are designed to help printers create a safer work environment, reduce their environmental footprint, and more competitively serve eco-conscious print buyers. These are all important decision criteria for printers in the Egyptian market.”
Presstek has one of the broadest portfolios of CTP solutions in the industry. The company pioneered chemistry-free CTP more than two decades ago. With Presstek’s chemistry-free Aurora Pro thermal plates, users simply image the plate, rinse it in water, and print. Its thermal imaging chemistry-free platesetters range from 2-page to 8-page solutions, meeting the needs of print businesses of all sizes. Polyester plate imaging and workflow solutions are also available.
Presstek’s highly automated, sheet-fed, four-color DI digital offset presses are the most cost-effective solutions for fast-turnaround, short-run, high-quality color printing. DI presses simultaneously image all plates on press in precise register, eliminating the need for offline platemaking. Presstek DI presses offer one of the lowest costs per sheet at run lengths of 500 to 20,000, while delivering up to 300 lpi quality and stochastic screening – without incurring additional time or expense. The DI can go from digital file to sellable color within ten minutes, which means more jobs can be completed in less time.
