New UK Kodak NEXPRESS Reseller
Complementing Kodak’s existing sales team, ASL which works with over 6,000 customers in the UK and has supported many in moving to a digital printing platform, will offer Kodak NEXPRESS Presses to its commercial print customers through a network of 11 locations.
The NEXPRESS Platform incorporates the company's Fifth Imaging Unit Solution which allows inline coating, glossing, or a fifth colour to expand the printing gamut and reproduce spot colors. The platform is compatible with a wide range of substrates in many weights and sizes, and is marketed as offering a duty cycle of 5,000 A4/letter sheets per hour - suiting it particularly to the needs of small to medium-sized commercial printers, in-plants, and digital service bureaux.
Announcing the agreement, Darren Chard, UK Sales and Marketing Director for Kodak, said:
"Printers who have added digital printing to their portfolio of services are increasingly looking for technology that gives them the flexibility to move more high-volume jobs from their offset machines, while also delivering short-run and customised jobs with exceptional quality.
"Our partnership with ASL will help more printers across the UK integrate the highest quality production level digital print technology into their operations while receiving exceptional support and services from Kodak’s dedicated team of service professionals."
Will Doherty, Commercial and Industrial Printing Systems Director at ASL, added:
"Our vendor-neutral approach allows us to recommend the best technology for each individual client.
"The partnership with Kodak represents a significant milestone for ASL as we continue to develop our portfolio of products in the commercial print space. We are delighted to be adding the NEXPRESS platform to our range and look forward to working closely with Darren and his team."
