South African Ricoh Distributing Partner Secures 25 Ricoh Pro C751 digital colour presses
London, May 2012 – South African Ricoh distributing partner Nashua secured 25 Ricoh Pro™ C751s at drupa 2012. The deal was signed as a result of fast growing regional interest in high quality, cost effective, digital print as offset printers increasingly seek to efficiently manage a greater range of print run lengths.
Nashua managing director Dave Coutinho comments: “South Africa follows trends in the rest of the world quite closely so we are seeing a lot of offset printers adding digital for the first time. The Pro C751 offers offset printers the perfect start in digital printing.”
As for the capabilities of the press he comments: “Pound for pound this is probably the best machine at the show in terms of production colour. The demo was unbelievable and the image quality is excellent.”
Nashua already has nine sales lined up and Mr Coutinho adds: “Our customers are taking to it so well. It is easy to integrate into their operations and gives them the results they want.”
Peter Williams, Executive Vice President, Head of Production Printing for Ricoh Europe's production printing business group says: “This order is further compelling evidence of the market winning benefits of the Pro C751 series that is redefining light production. We look forward to helping even more companies in the region expand their print production capabilities with our highly effective digital production printing digital solutions.”
