TC Transcontinental Printing, a sector of Transcontinental Inc., is proud to announce that it has invested more than $10 million over the past eight months in its book printing platform in Québec, mainly at its Transcontinental Interglobe plant in the Beauce region. These investments have enabled the plant to improve its manufacturing efficiency to better meet the demand from North American customers and the fast delivery times expected by the market, while reducing its environmental footprint. “These major investments demonstrate our confidence in the future of the North American book market and our desire to build our printing platform in growth verticals like this one,” said Jacques Grégoire, Chief Development Officer, Printing & Media at TC Transcontinental. “The timing is right for these investments with the signing of several contract extensions and new agreements with major educational publishers. They will allow us to remain competitive in the market and take on larger jobs to continually meet the growing demand from our customers.”
A recently purchased EFI™ VUTEk® 5r LED roll-to-roll printer from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq:EFII) is driving new business opportunities at Italian digital printing company New Decor System. The printer – the Rome-based company’s fourth 5-metre inkjet device – will be used to expand New Decor System’s range of high-quality large format prints as the company works to grow local and national demand.
New Decor System is one of Italy’s leading suppliers of digitally printed wideformat signage and graphics, including out-of-home advertising, backlit panels, banners, vehicle wraps and soft signage. The company’s CEO, Angelo Modica, has New Decor System in its 30 years of business, thanks to continuous investments in the most advanced technologies. With a range of machines that includes numerous small-format plotters and three-large format machines, New Decor System is able to guarantee deliveries in 24 hours throughout Italy.
“Large-format work is on the rise and the demands of our customers exceed our current production capacity,” Modica said. Superwide-format work in particular is currently the biggest drive on Modica’s business, a factor that led him to invest in the 5-metre LED printer from EFI.
The new VUTEk 5r printer will offer New Decor System the ability to print high volumes with high-definition image quality on a wide range of media. The company’s printer has four colours and UltraDrop™ Technology with 7 picolitre printheads and can print with exceptional uniformity in shading, gradients and transitions with high-quality images and text.
