Agfa Graphics is expanding its operations in Canada with the opening of a new warehouse in London, Ontario.
The warehouse addition follows March 2014 news of Agfa opening up an enhanced demonstration centre in its Mississauga facility, which serves as the manufacturing site for the Belgian parent company’s high-end Jeti inkjet systems.
“Our objective is always to improve the level of services to our customers,” stated Ruben Silva, Managing Director, Agfa Graphics Canada. “By expanding operations we can provide a wider portfolio of innovative products that give a competitive edge to our customers and partners...”
In conjunction with its new warehouse announcement, Agfa stated it will soon introduce Duratex media to the Canadian inkjet market, as well as other wide-format medias, and Esko products.
Agfa Graphics’ Mississauga manufacturing facility recently began production of the new Jeti Titan S and HS flatbed inkjet machines, shown for the first time in early February at the C!Print exhibition in Lyon, France. These new machines incorporate the latest generation of Ricoh Gen 5 print heads with 1,280 nozzles. The Jeti Titan S is equipped with one row of print heads, but it is field upgradeable to two rows. The Jeti Titan HS (high-speed) is equipped with the two rows from the outset.
