Kodak CEO Antonio Perez visited China this week to meet with customers, talk with business leaders at an AMCHAM China event and to announce plans to open The Kodak Regional Technology Centre in Shanghai. In an interview with Bloomberg, Antonio notes that demand for digital printing is increasing as companies in China are looking to transition into more dynamic business models.
As the second largest printing market in the world, Kodak is working with the industry to integrate new technologies that are transforming the publishing and packaging printing markets. The Centre, which is expected to open in the first-half of 2014, will showcase the latest developments in commercial printing technology, provide training to customers and partners, and demonstrate innovative new business applications. Our aim is to make this new Technology Centre a tremendous resource for our customers to learn about winning new applications and develop strategies to grow their businesses in China and across the Asia-Pacific region.
