Flexotecnica Reports Strong 4Q10 Press Sales
NEW BERLIN, Wis.—Flexotecnica S.p.A. reports a significant increase in sales in the fourth quarter of 2010, with over a dozen presses sold in that period worldwide, including the United States and Canada.
Flexotecnica’s new XG and XD presses have been selling well into all markets worldwide, in part due to its innovative waste reduction system that significantly reduces initial set-up waste when starting a new print job.
This new system was shown to numerous visitors at Flexotecnica’s factory in Tavazzano, Italy, concurrently with the “K” Exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany, and at the Converting & Package Printing (CPP) Expo in Chicago, IL. As a result of these demonstrations, several orders were place shortly thereafter for both XG and XD presses, including a multiple press order from a major international converter.
“Flexotecnica’s relentless focus on simplicity has resulted in this very inventive method to slash start-up waste, resulting in higher productivity and profits for its users,” states Tom Jacques, Sales Manager – North America for Flexotecnica presses.
Flexotecnica also introduced a new, compact, energy-efficient drying system at the same time, along with other energy saving options. “We are acutely focused on those aspects of printing that our customers can better control, in order to increase their efficiency and reduce their costs,” continues Jacques. “This new drying system achieves that goal by providing more drying for less energy expenditure. Simply put, it is yet another step ahead in the drive for increased profitably for our customers.”
Both the XG and XD models have been sold in North America, so this new technology will be employed in presses slated for delivery in 2011.
