Komori Europe and Highcon announce strategic partnership
Komori Europe Corporation and Highcon Systems Ltd have entered into a strategic selling agreement, further strengthening the existing Highcon relationship with Komori in Japan and America. Komori Europe is in the process of installing a Highcon Euclid III digital cutting and creasing machine at the Komori Graphic Centre Europe in Utrecht and will sell and support the entire Highcon product line in France, Italy, UK and the Netherlands.
The Highcon digital finishing solutions are the perfect complement to the Komori fleet of offset presses as well as the new Impremia IS29, 29-inch inkjet, sheetfed UV printing system. The Highcon solutions not only remove bottlenecks in the post press process by dramatically reducing set up time and enabling rapid turnaround of jobs, but also deliver increased design options with the ability to produce intricate cut outs, etching, variable data cutting, and the promise of accessible web to pack with the Highcon Axis. The potential of this combination is ideal for print providers who want to offer a wide range of commercial and packaging applications.
‘We are very pleased with this partnership that highlights Komori’s commitment to support our customers developing successful business models utilising both offset and digital print, from concept to final product. We are convinced that our European customers will benefit from the combined expertise of our two companies, allowing them to develop and deliver innovative applications and a faster time to market,’ said Peter Minis, marketing manager for Komori Europe.
Jens Henrik Osmundsen, Highcon vice president Global Sales, added: ‘We already have several joint customers and are proud that Komori, with its 100 year focus on reliability and quality, understands the true value that our technology can bring to their customers, whether offset or digital. We look forward to working together to expand the Highcon customer base.
The Highcon Euclid III digital cutting and creasing machine will be demonstrated during the Autumn Open House at the Komori Graphic Centre Europe in Utrecht on 4 and 5 October 2017. Registration is now open at www.komori.eu
