DeJong Printing to Become nexGen Grafix
On Friday of this week, Edmonton’s DeJong Printing Ltd. will begin operating under a new name, nexGen Grafix Inc., as Henk DeJong prepares to build upon his father’s 33-year success.
Henk DeJong has long been involved with the family business, but his father, Stuart DeJong, is now taking on a less active role with the company, which was founded in 1979. nexGen Grafix Inc. will continue to be based out of the same building and provide the same services – “This is strictly a change in name only.”
In January 2012, DeJong Printing installed a new 29-inch, 6-colour Komori Lithrone SX629C, its third new Komori press in the last seven years, which is now the company’s flagship offset machine. A couple of months earlier, DeJong Printing also installed a new 5-colour Kodak NexPress SX2700 to boost its toner production. The company first stepped into toner in May 2009 with the installation of a 12 x 18-inch Xanté Ilumina 502.
Today, the company lists three primary offset presses, including the Lithrone SX629C, a 4-colour Komori (20 x 29-inch format), and a 2-colour Hamada (12 x 18-inch format). According the Henk DeJong, the FSC-certified operation still produces about 70 percent of its work with offset presses, while the remaining 30 percent is handled by its toner capabilities.
