Last week saw the inaugural print run of Warwickshire-based Emmerson Press’s new Jet Press 720S after a seamless installation process
A local Warwickshire manufacturer of refuse collecting vehicles has taken receipt of the very first job to run off a Jet Press 720S in the UK. "We received the artwork at 10am – with delivery required that afternoon," says Emmerson Press Operations Director Jamie Emmerson. "We knew immediately that on that timescale and at that sort of run length, it was a job for the Jet Press."
"The customer required three versions of an A2 Poster, 50 copies of each – and they had to be of the highest quality. The Jet Press was well up to the task, as we knew it would be. The customer loved the vivid colours we were able to produce and we were thrilled with the level of quality we were able to deliver to them with such a tight turnaround."
"We’re really excited to see our new press up and running," says Emmerson Press Sales Director John Emmerson. "Fujifilm has done an excellent job with the install and the training to get us to this point so quickly, and now we’re delighted that our customers have now begun to see for themselves what we’ve already seen on visits to working Jet Press installations in Germany and the Netherlands."
"The quality of work this machine is capable of, and the speed with which it delivers, has already impressed one customer – and from their feedback it’s clear it’s going to impress a lot more. Our capacity to take on new work has increased dramatically, and as a direct result we are now actively recruiting for an additional sales person to help bring that work in."
Says Keith Dalton, Director, Fujifilm UK Ltd: "We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Emmerson Press as it becomes the first UK print house to take advantage of this machine’s enormous potential. This company has given itself a clear edge over its competitors, and ultimately its customers are going to be the beneficiaries. We look forward to partnering with them in growing their business over the coming months and years."
Since its founding in 1981, Emmerson Press has been at the technological forefront of the industry. Never afraid to lead the way, in the 1990s it was a digital press trailblazer, and now – having closely followed the progress of the B2 digital inkjet market in recent years, it has again decided to lead the UK digital market by investing in the Jet Press 720S.
With a total global install base growing rapidly and now numbering nearly 80, Emmerson Press has joined an increasing number of print service providers across the globe who are profitably pioneering new business opportunities with the high quality, short run, on demand print the Jet Press 720S delivers so successfully.
The Jet Press 720S will be on display at drupa 2016 (Stand A25, Hall 8b).
