Consolidated Graphics Installs Kodak Press
Consolidated Graphics announced plans to install a Kodak Prosper 5000XL press at the company's Automated Graphic Systems (AGS) facility in White Plains, Maryland. The partnership with Kodak will enable AGS to market full-color, on-demand publishing to its current commercial printing customers, and strengthens CGX's current leadership position in digital printing.
"Our close partnership with Kodak has allowed us to remain at the forefront of digital inkjet web technology, and demonstrates our joint commitment to seeking newer and better solutions for our market," said Ric Davis, CGX Executive Vice President of Operations. "The Prosper 5000XL Press will enable us to bring offset quality printing to customers who were previously limited by lower volume outputs and affordability constraints for their variable printing needs."
"We've seen an increased demand from our customers to affordably print four-color trade publications where economies of scale have historically limited runs to one or two colors. As a result of the Prosper's ability to image offset quality, full-color variable data on every page, AGS is positioned to respond to a world where print and communication is becoming increasingly personal," said Dustin Graupman, President of AGS.
"AGS and CGX have long established themselves as technology leaders in the commercial printing industry, and the Prosper installation is a continued effort to maintain that leadership position."
