Headquartered in Milwaukee, Wis., Olympus Group provides custom print solutions, as well as custom mascot characters, across a variety of markets including tradeshows and events, sports teams, entertainment and branded environments.

Olympus Group was met with the challenge of aging equipment with increasing downtime and waste. After reviewing various models, they knew they needed to take advantage of the latest technology.

“We needed to have a solution for printing both rigid and roll-to-roll. This allows us to maximize the use of space within our facilities while also increasing capacity and improving turnaround speed,” said Jason Ahart, COO, Olympus Group.

With research, and a few industry references later, Olympus Group decided to buy a Durst P5 350, an all-in-one hybrid, large-format UV LED inkjet press that prints both rigid and roll materials up to 138 in. (3.5 m) wide with 1200 dpi output. The P5 350 provides various options to this platform, brings expanded roll capabilities with controlled double-sided printing, allowing for fast media changes and innovative flexibility. The P5 350 is equipped with Durst Print Workflow software and exclusive Durst Analytics, turning the printer into a production unit from day one and offering enhanced production efficiency.

“Less downtime and significant efficiency gain has been achieved with the P5 350,” said Gamalier Roche, plant manager, Olympus Group/Orlando, FL. With a Durst P5 350 at both their WI and FL locations, Olympus Group’s multi-site custom print capabilities can now produce more in-house, mitigating cost and capacity concerns, while maintaining a high level of responsiveness, turning projects faster than their competition for their customers.
