Bryan S Ryan Lands Contract to Distribute KODAK NEXPRESS Digital Production Color Presses in Ireland
LA HULPE, BELGIUM -- Print services providers in Ireland can now broaden their portfolios and improve the quality of their products thanks to a new agreement between Kodak and leading digital and commercial print company, Bryan S Ryan. Under the terms of the non-exclusive agreement, Bryan S Ryan will now distribute KODAK NEXPRESS Presses, Kodak’s family of highly advanced digital production color presses.
Bryan S Ryan has been chosen because of its huge customer base and its ability to develop the Kodak brand in Ireland, one of Kodak’s key markets. The company’s success is built on adopting state-of-the-art technology, making it perfectly placed to convey to its customers the cutting-edge innovations of the KODAK NEXPRESS Press family range and the commercial benefits they deliver. Bryan S Ryan’s vast technical expertise, coupled with its excellent understanding of the challenges faced by Irish printers, have ensured the company has remained profitable despite the economic downturn – it recorded a €16m turnover in the last financial year.
A raft of new business opportunities
KODAK NEXPRESS Digital Production Color Presses enable print service providers to help their customers overhaul their print communications by producing short-run, customized, high-impact color documents. The sophisticated machines deliver superior image quality on a wide range of substrates. And because the NEXPRESS Presses are incredibly fast, highly reliable and cost effective, printers enjoy increased volume, reduced operating costs and higher margins.
With Commercial Print Business Manager and former Kodak employee, Will Doherty, leading the Kodak account, Bryan S Ryan is very confident the agreement will prove hugely successful: “It’s clear that there is a huge market in Ireland for technology as advanced as the KODAK NEXPRESS Presses,” says Doherty. “The NEXPRESS Press is ‘the printers’ digital press. And there is no click charge with the NEXPRESS Press, which means printers can manage their costs more closely. Plus the system’s Fifth Imaging Unit lets printers add a raft of applications, such as Dimensional Printing, inline coating, gamut expansion, spot colors, off-line glossing and secure MICR printing.
“We’re confident that the NEXPRESS Presses will be a big hit among the Irish print community. The machines represent an excellent opportunity for print houses in the region to develop new products and services, enter new markets and create new commercial opportunities.
“The agreement represents a logical and exciting step for us. The KODAK NEXPRESS Press will enable us to provide market-leading digital print solutions to the commercial print sector in Ireland, which will help strengthen our position in the industry.”
