  • Synnex takes on Epson wide format series

    Epson is broadening its distribution partnership with Synnex Australia adding the Epson SureColor T Series range of high-speed large format printers to the Melbourne-headquartered information and communications technology distributor.

    The new deal comes hot on the heels of Epson’s appointment in July of Neopost Australia (formerly GBC Australia) as a national reseller of its SureColor S Series eco-solvent printers.

    “We are very pleased to have the Synnex Imaging and Printing Product Management team working with us on our T Series printers in these specialised market segments,” said Craig Heckenberg (pictured), business unit manager for Epson Australia.
“Epson and Synnex are long term partners with a proven track record in making a wide range of Epson printing solutions available to the Australian market.

    “We’re looking forward to their support to help us grow this important segment of the large format printing market,” he said.

    Synnex Australia is a fully-owned subsidiary of the Synnex Group, with its corporate home base in Fremont California, a business process services company and distributor of technology by OEM suppliers to more than 20,000 resellers globally. Synnex claims itself as the largest information and communications technology (ICT) distributor in Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

    Kee Ong, Synnex Australia CEO, welcomed the addition of the Epson SureColor T series to its range for customers at Synnex.

    “Our extensive reseller network can facilitate penetration into specialised printing markets for Epson,” sad Kee. “All our resellers are backed by Synnex’s comprehensive infrastructure, knowledgeable support and superior services. These enable our resellers with the right expertise and right product to advise their customers on specialised printing requirements.

    “Extending the partnership proves the existing value created by this long term relationship between Epson and Synnex is beneficial to our resellers,” he said. “Synnex is working closely with Epson to ensure the Just-In-Time availability of these cost-effective, high-speed, large-format, colour printers to our resellers through a well planned and executed go-to-market strategy.”

    For Epson, the 44 inch SureColor SC-T7000, 36 inch SC-T5000 and 24 inch SC-T3000 offer a combination of precision, performance and value with water resistant pigment inks, class leading print speeds and extremely low running costs.

    Designed for the production of plans, drawings, presentations, maps, and short run posters, they are compact, fast and flexible with low power consumption and reduced running costs.

  • Epson seals SureColor reseller deal with Neopost Australia

    Epson is broadening its national dealer network in the sign and display segment, appointing Neopost Australia (formerly GBC Australia) as a national reseller for the Epson SureColor S Series eco-solvent printers.

    “Neopost Australia has established itself in the past decade as a leading supplier to the large format signage, exhibition and display industries, so it is a welcome addition to our dealer network,” says Craig Heckenberg (pictured), business unit manager for Epson Australia. Epson’s strong product offering in this segment complements Neopost’s experience across this market.

    “Customers are telling us there’s a lot to like in the SureColor S-Series, such as advanced media handling, high output flexibility and exceptional colour gamut, giving a boost to their customer’s satisfaction, so I am sure Neopost Australia will have great success with these printers,” he says.

    For Chris Pettit, marketing manager, Printing and Finishing Solutions, Neopost Australia, the new addition awards Neopost Australia with an added dose of brand prestige.

    “As a market leader in print finishing solutions for the graphics industry, partnering with world leading brands like Epson enhances our product offering, backed by our national sales, service and support capabilities,” says Pettit. “The Epson SureColor S series allows Neopost Australia to expand its product portfolio and truly offer a one-stop shop for all large format print and finishing needs to new and existing print providers.

    “Epson is a reliable brand at an attractive price-point giving Neopost Australia the competitive edge as a leading supplier to the print for pay market,” he says.

    Barry Grant, Neopost’s newly appointed national manager, Sign and Display, says his team’s role is to assist the existing customer base of traditional printers to diversify their product offering to the growing signage market.

    “Our knowledge across all aspects of this market is as much a value-add to an existing sign-writer as it is to a new contender, and the speed, reliability and overall performance of the SureColor S Series printers certainly adds to our capabilities,” says Grant.

  • PacPrint debut for Epson SurePress L-4033A

    Epson is publicly showcasing its new high-speed SurePress L-4033A short run digital label printer for the first time at PacPrint13, with the MicroPiezo inkjet press taking pride of place on the company’s stand #1218 at the show.

    “It’s time for SurePress to make its Australian trade show debut, given its successes in the field,” says Craig Heckenberg (pictured), business unit manager for Epson Australia.

    Epson will run hourly demonstrations of SurePress at PacPrint next month, showing its versatility by printing on different ranges of coated and uncoated stocks.

    The SurePress L-4033A press joins its production sibling, the L-4033AW, which has a seven-colour AQ ink set, including white, that ensures customers can produce not only solid, opaque white printing but also precise colour-matching and accurate reproduction of spot and specialty colours. The Epson stand will also feature samples printed by the SurePress L-4033AW.

    The SurePress showing comes off the back of a growing popularity in the local market for the digital MicroPiezo inkjet-powered range.

    “SurePress installations are being driven by the need for better margins and the increasing demand for high-quality customised shorter run label production,” says Heckenberg, “so the response to SurePress’s flexibility and quality has been very strong particularly in some specialised areas like wine labeling.

    “Digital setup processes are cleaner and quicker, variable content is easily integrated into a the single print run. SurePress gives a go-ahead innovative look to the business, and profit margins are better – the whole business gets a lift when a SurePress is installed,” he says.

    The SurePress models print on a range of off-the-shelf substrates with no pre-coating required up to 12.6 mm thick and any width in the range 80 to 330 mm.

    It leverages the accuracy and precision of Epson’s MicroPiezo inkjet technology and SurePress AQ industrial-quality, water-based pigment ink that produces a broad range of colours for consistent results.
