Presstek, Inc., a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Graphic Innovators, Inc. to distribute Presstek DI digital offset presses and its portfolio of CTP systems. Graphic Innovators, headquartered in Elk Grove, IL, specializes in the sale of new and remanufactured offset presses to the printing, converting, and packaging industries. Graphic Innovators will be distributing Presstek products in the United States, Mexico and Brazil.
“We are thrilled to add Presstek’s family of DI digital offset presses and CTP products to our product mix,” said Paul Minasian, Vice President & General Manager of Graphic Innovators. “Presstek DI presses give us a terrific opportunity to offer short to medium run length solutions to our customers. And now, by offering Presstek’s CTP portfolio, we can easily bundle a platemaking solution with the conventional presses that we sell. Presstek is an excellent partner to work with as we expand our business.”
Presstek’s DI digital offset presses bridge the gap between toner and conventional offset printing, enabling print service providers of all sizes to cost effectively meet increasing customer demand for high quality, short run color printing with a fast turnaround time while providing improved profit margins with a small environmental footprint. Presstek’s CTP offerings include four- and eight-page systems, many of which are fully automated, and a complete line of thermal plates.
Joe Demharter, Presstek’s Vice President of Sales, said, “Graphic Innovators has strong relationships with many larger commercial and packaging printers in the U.S., Mexico and Brazil, all of which are important markets for us. Our partnership with them strengthens Presstek’s position in these markets and provides an excellent opportunity to generate additional revenue. We are pleased to be the first company Graphic Innovators has chosen to partner with as they add sales of new equipment to their already-established used equipment business. Graphic Innovators is a well-respected company, and we look forward to working with them in the United States as well as in Mexico and Brazil.”
