In response to the growing plate demand in China and the Asia Pacific region, Kodak is opening a second production line for its Xiamen printing plate manufacturing facility. The expanded facility in China’s southeastern city will grow Kodak’s manufacturing capacity for offset products in the fast-growing market.

“China and the Asia Pacific region are key markets, and the expanded Xiamen plant gives us closer proximity and enhanced capability in serving our customers in this part of the world,” said Douglas Edwards, General Manager and Vice President, Prepress Solutions, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company. “The second manufacturing line in Xiamen will bring our offset production capability to the next level, as this operation will support the manufacturing of Kodak’s leading edge portfolio.”

The manufacturing line will produce CTP plates for the Greater Asia Region and will supply other regions with certain plates. The plant will support the development of current and new products.

“The expanded manufacturing line in Xiamen will introduce Kodak’s cutting edge production technologies, which will make the plant the most advanced plate manufacturing facility on our global map ,” said Diane McCue, General Manager, Printing Plates, Graphic Communications Group, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company.
