Landa Corporation has decided that Komori is to provide all sheetfed platforms for what the company terms as Nanographic Printing Presses, first demonstrated at the quadrennial drupa tradeshow in May 2012.
The two companies, according to a statement from Komori, have now formalized their preexisting strategic alliance by entering into new agreements. Landa is to place orders to employ Komori sheetfed platforms on Landa's S10 printing press, which is scheduled for a commercial launch in the fourth quarter of 2014.
“Since we first started our collaboration with Komori, we have been deeply impressed by the company, its people and its culture,” stated Benny Landa, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Landa Corporation. “Komori is an outstanding partner for Landa, bringing an extremely high caliber of engineering expertise, second-to-none quality and performance, together with a fervent commitment and willingness to invest in the future.”
Komori has also formalized its license agreement with Landa, as part of the new agreements. Landa is to provide Komori with its trademarked printing technology and Landa NanoInk Colorants for incorporation into new Komori-branded presses.
“It is a great honour to be able to cooperate with Landa in bringing Nanography to market,” stated Yoshiharu Komori, President, Chairman and CEO of Komori. “Our teams have been closely monitoring Landa’s development and have been amazed with the progress made so far, which exceeds our expectations.”
