(SDN) — STALWARTS of the Philippines graphic industry have welcomed the digital printing machines that Fuji Xerox introduced in the country.
Fuji Xerox Philippines unveiled in an Open House recently its Versant 180 Press, Iridesse Production Press, and DC5588.
Dewey Gan, Graphic Communications head at Fuji Xerox, led the unveiling of the machines as stakeholders, including the Graphics Industry’s leaders, observed and admired the state-of-the-art printing machines.
The company’s Marketing Communications Team helped entertained the guests and answered their questions to satisfy their curiosity. Curiosity that hopefully would lead to business deals — like customers’ adoption of the new machines.
One of the many customers or clients present at the event summed at sentiments of those who were present and able to see the machines for themselves.
“I really wanted to use Fuxi Xerox Graphic Communications machines. Seeing it personally made me craved for more,” the unnamed customer emphasized.
That sounds like a great beginning for the Japanese company’s products, a by-word among business organizations, big and small.
As well as the machines shown at the Open House, Fujix Xerxo also featured sample prints from Versant 180, Iridesse, and DC5588 that will keep businesses happy for their high volume and high quality printing that are best for graphic arts companies and businesses.
