Xerox and Fujifilm North America’s Graphic Systems Division announced a reseller agreement for Xerox to market and sell the Fujifilm J Press 720S in the United States and Canada, beginning on October 1, 2017.
The J Press 720S is a sheetfed inkjet press which Fujifilm positions as providing the quality and robustness of an offset press, as well as the versatility to handle short press runs. The J Press 720S has a 29.5 inch x 20.9 inch sheet size and runs both coated and uncoated standard offset stock, with full support for variable data and personalization.
“The Fujifilm J Press 720S has had strong success in the B2-format digital print category,” said Jeff Hayes, Managing Director, Keypoint Intelligence (InfoTrends). “A combination of high quality levels and a rugged design has made the J Press popular, particularly with commercial printers.”
According to InfoTrends, placements of B2 format digital printing devices will grow at a CAGR of 17.4 percent from 2016 to 2021 in the U.S. and Western Europe. Through this dealer agreement, Xerox will expand its cut-sheet portfolio.
“Our diverse cut-sheet and continuous feed inkjet presses offer our customers the flexibility and productivity needed to thrive in their businesses today,” said Andrew Copley, President, Graphic Communications Solutions, Xerox. “The decision to partner with Fujifilm expands our portfolio into the B2 inkjet space and gives our customers the most innovative production color options available on the market.”
Additionally, Fujifilm is expanding its inkjet product portfolio through its existing production colour reseller agreement with Xerox. The agreement adds three inkjet presses, the Xerox Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press, the Xerox Rialto 900 Inkjet Press, and the Xerox Brenva HD Production Inkjet Press, to Fujifilm’s inkjet platform which also includes the J Press 720S, as well as hybrid tag and label and wide format production platforms.
