HP Inc. has announced a new method for print service providers of all sizes to acquire HP Indigo digital printing technology while saving capital expenditure, in the form of its new HP Indigo Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program.
The program, which is starting with B2 HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press units, offers previously owned presses at a more accessible price point. They are certified and resold after undergoing a strict renewal process to ensure they continue to provide reliable and quality production.
“Now is the time to plant the seeds for growth and invest in solutions that can capture opportunities for high-value work that will secure a profitable future,” said Haim Levit, general manager, HP Indigo. “This is why we are now introducing the HP Indigo CPO program, expanding investment options for print service providers to join the world of HP Indigo and access unique growth opportunities using the benefits of HP Indigo LEP technology.”
The program includes a portfolio of previously owned HP Indigo digital presses for commercial printing, labels and packaging. This includes the HP Indigo 10000, HP Indigo 12000, HP Indigo 7000 and narrow-web 6000 series.
“HP’s pre-owned program allowed us, a smaller offset printer, to bring in the same HP Indigo digital-offset technology with a lower financial investment more suitable to the size of our business, but still enabled us to provide our customers the advantages of HP Indigo digital printing technology,” said Brian Craig, president, Woods Printing Company, an offset printer in the U.S. that invested in a pre-owned HP Indigo 10000. “We have really seen growth in our high-end, short-run projects. Like most printers, we were seeing a switch to shorter run, higher frequency jobs. This press has helped us meet and exceed the needs of our customers more efficiently and with higher profitability.”
The pre-owned presses are carefully selected and inspected as candidates for renewal based on press age, print volume and condition. The renewal process includes the replacement of parts to the latest hardware, new software configurations including the latest digital front end, and a six-month warranty.
Pre-owned HP Indigo 10000 Digital Presses are now available under the CPO program in selected regions. Additional presses are expected to be available later this year.
