“We are excited to welcome Xeikon Café North America visitors to our new Innovation Centre,” stated Benoit Chatelard, President & CEO Digital Solutions, Flint Group. “This is just one element of the continued strengthening of our North American organization to ensure even better services for our growing Xeikon community there. We are also pleased to introduce visitors the two new digital presses from our Fast Feline family, recently launched at Labelexpo Europe. These include the Xeikon PX3000 powered by Panther UV inkjet technology and the Xeikon CX500 powered by Cheetah dry toner technology. Both are ideally suited for the North American market.”
The Xeikon Innovation Centre in Chicago is one of the few centres around the globe where people can fully experience the Xeikon solutions. The experience revolves around how printers can operate more effectively and more efficiently, going beyond only a printing press. It encompasses workflow, consumables, printing presses and converting equipment, and offers a broader spectrum of the production and business needs of printers and converters. The solutions hosted in the Chicago Innovation Centre cover all market segments Xeikon is addressing, more specifically Graphic Arts, Labels and Packaging. At the opening of the new centre, three digital printing solutions are displayed: the Xeikon PX3000, the company’s first UV inkjet digital label press just launched; the Xeikon 9800 duplex electrophotography (EP) printing press for the Graphic Arts market that runs at the highest production speeds; and the Xeikon 3500 wide-web, high speed EP digital press geared for carton packaging markets as well as wall decoration and signage industry.
Xeikon is also reorganizing to provide dedicated, local sales teams for all markets it is serving, including graphic arts segments, labels and packaging – and it is making investments in dedicated marketing, solutions & services and business development resources. “We are delighted to have Donna and James joining us as part of this North American growth strategy,” said Dave Wilkins, Xeikon VP Sales & Marketing US. “Both appointments are fundamental to the continuous expansion of our highly skilled and knowledgeable team dedicated to servicing the digital printing market in the U.S. and Canada. We look forward to them bringing their expertise on board and providing Xeikon customers with the highest levels of support and care.”
