Xeikon, an innovator in digital color printing technology, is continuing to expand its network of expert partners in the Asia Pacific region by teaming up with Philippines solution provider, St. Jude Consulting & System Services Inc. to serve the document printing market.
This respected printing industry distributor, with a head office in Manila, represents a wide range of products from well-known brands, as well as offers services and consumables for the graphic arts market. Its reputation for long-term customer relationships and its dedication to supplying quality after-sales services to customers in the Philippines fitting well with Xeikon culture and strategy.
“Our initial progress in the Philippines label market has been very encouraging,” states Bent Serritslev, Managing Director Xeikon Asia Pacific. “We are confident that, jointly with St. Jude, we will be able to extend this success further into the document printing market, particularly considering our robust portfolio of solutions that offer an attractive alternative in the high-volume digital market for books, brochures, large format covers and wall decoration. St. Jude’s dedication to customer service and exceptional after-sale support is well-respected in the country and we are looking forward to jointly working to grow the Xeikon installed base in the Philippines.”
“We see huge potential for Xeikon’s solutions in the Philippines,” comments Gynn Flores, Marketing Manager for St. Jude. “Print on demand is a clear trend, and offset printers are quickly adopting a digital strategy to complement their conventional print business. Offset printers are used to investing in high performance equipment, and we see Xeikon presses as a perfect fit for our discerning market, which want fast, affordable digital printing capability with no compromise in quality.”
She concludes: “Filipino customers also demand best-in-class after-sales services, and with our infrastructure and excellent support from Xeikon Asia, we are confident that we will be able to provide what is needed when it is needed, surpassing customer expectations.”
The Asia Pacific region is an important market for Xeikon, who has deployed a full contingent of sales and technical support staff there as well as opened two Technology Centres to further support its distribution network. Xeikon presses feature LED array based technology, exceptionally high quality dry toner electrophotographic printing, open workflow software and a growing number of application-specific toners that are gaining in popularity around the globe. “With a dedicated presence in the Philippines,” Serritslev adds, “we will be better positioned to create and support digital printing configurations that meet the specific needs of each and every customer.”
