HP Inc. yesterday reached a milestone 1,000 HP Indigo Series 4 presses sold as customer momentum for its 29-inch (B2) platform across commercial and labels and packaging digital printing applications grows.
“Supplying 1000 presses to customers in 65 countries is an exciting milestone. The introduction of the HP Indigo B2 platform at drupa 2012 set the stage for a massive disruption in printing, prompting print service providers to reevaluate their businesses,” Alon Bar-Shany, General Manager, HP Indigo, HP Inc., said at the annual HP Indigo 2019 Global Customer Event. “Today, adopters of HP Indigo technologies are enjoying double-digit growth thanks to their relentless drive to innovate and print different.”
Ryan Printing, a New York-based, print service provider, was recognized as the 1000th worldwide installation of an HP Indigo Series 4 press with its purchase of an HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press.
“The Indigo 12000 HD will be a perfect fit for our longer and large-size digital runs and our shorter traditional offset jobs, and will help enable us to open up new markets and capabilities,” said Al Ryan, Owner and General Manager of Ryan Printing, whose new press will expand production alongside its HP Indigo 7800.
