Agfa Graphics is helping SpeedPro Imaging, a national printing and graphics franchise, establish itself as the leader in large-format printing. For these efforts, SpeedPro just named Agfa Graphics a Preferred Partner.
Agfa Graphics has been nurturing a long-standing relationship with SpeedPro and is in step with helping the franchise provide the necessary tools for its Studios to be more profitable.
"Our comprehensive offering of integrated and innovative inkjet solutions; equipment, inks, media, workflow, technical expertise, and unmatched coast-to-coast service, means we can help SpeedPro Studios become more efficient and profitable at a level no other manufacturer can," said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America.
Agfa Graphics has a long history of providing its customers with a complete business solution that goes beyond high-quality equipment. The company offers award-winning technical and expert services to its customers, including SpeedPro Imaging and their Studios. These extensive services translate into the knowledge and support SpeedPro Studios need to run a productive and profitable business.
Many SpeedPro Studios have purchased Agfa inkjet equipment in recent years and are taking advantage of the partnership. For example, Rich and Lynne Arrington, Owners of SpeedPro Pittsburgh North in Pennsylvania, purchased an Agfa Graphics Anapurna H3200i LED. The investment is helping the franchise gain new large format business from a wealth of corporate, industrial and research organizations in Pittsburgh.
Mike and Denise Retherford, owners of SpeedPro Orlando, Florida, recently purchased an Anapurna H3200i LED as well. The Retherfords know that SpeedPro's model is to put a studio owner in the best position for success. The Retherfords recognize that differentiating their Studio at the top end of the large format printing market would pay dividends.
The Anapurna H3200i LED delivers high throughput and high quality. LED UV curing saves energy, time and costs and allows for the widest media mix in the market at all print quality levels.
"Partnering with Agfa Graphics makes it easy for SpeedPro Imaging Studio owners to get access to a unique combination of innovative products, technical expertise, nation-wide distribution, and service, helping them achieve the lowest cost of ownership," said Jodi Olin, Vendor Relations Manager and Consulting, SpeedPro Imaging. "Agfa Graphics equipment is exceeding expectations delivering consistent quality and helping our Studios grow."
