Sankyo primary business focuses on high-volume printing using four Web presses. They also were a non Kodak Customer with an equipment portfolio: Screen’s workflow and Output Device, Fuji Film GS’s plate and Xerox’s POD.
With no in house solutions, Sankyo outsourced short-run printing increasing costs and quality control. Top management recognized increasing needs for short-run on demand printing and were looking for a new press to meet the market demand and to bring the work in house. Kodak Japan proposed NexPress Gold solution to reduce their costs, differentiate from competition with GOLD feature, print in house and capitalize on growing market demand.
Mr. Sugiyama, President of Sankyo, said they will proactively expand their business promoting NexPress GOLD Solution.
