Canon Production Printing has signed an agreement with Rodden Graphics to promote and distribute its LabelStream 4000 series UV inkjet press from the beginning of May 2021.
Through the arrangement, Canon Production Printing is set to continue and solidify its expansion in Europe to the Oceania label printing market. It comes on the back of identifying a significant requirement in the region for digital label printing, driven by increasing demand for manufacturing flexibility, on-demand production, high quality, and reliable output.
Local sales and service provider, Canon Production Printing Australia, will support the installation and servicing of the LabelStream across Australian and New Zealand markets via its service network.
‘We’re confident that we can assist label converters looking to extend profit streams via digital print solutions,’ commented Craig Nethercott, managing director of Canon Production Printing Oceania. ‘To support this growth, the LabelStream 4000 series will be available in both its core solution, providing the ideal introduction into the world of high-performance inkjet label printing, as well as its hybrid configuration, enabling a complete inline production of high-quality, self-adhesive labels and a fully integrated, single-pass label conversion line.’
Walter Vogelsberger, VP of digital packaging print at Canon Production Printing, added: ‘With its strong channel presence and established relationships, Rodden Graphics is a trusted partner for its many customers and will be able to increase the value it adds by offering the Canon Production Printing solutions to the Oceania label market. Australia is an important market in terms of growth opportunities, and the cooperation with Rodden Graphics is a perfect fit to provide customers with access to Canon’s cutting-edge technology supported by our excellent service network.’
‘We are pleased to partner with Canon and support its distribution for the Oceania market. We are confident that our network will play a key role in growing the presence of the LabelStream 4000 series and introducing its product portfolio to an increasing customer base in our region,’ concluded James Rodden, director of Rodden Graphics.
