Tierps Tryckeri has become the first company in Sweden to invest in Konica Minolta’s AccurioJet KM-1 B2 digital press in a further move to make “inket the reality” for the print and packaging sectors. The company will unlock important new market opportunities as part of its business transformation with proven AccurioJet KM-1 technology.
Tierps Truckeri believes the investment will enable it to be at the forefront of infrastructure and technology developments.
”We have made a strategic choice with the first investment in an exceptional sheet-fed inkjet print system. Together with an infrastructure beyond the ordinary, we will undoubtedly make an impact.”
Håkan Monfors, Chief Executive Officer of Tierps Tryckeri
A comprehensive business case involving in-depth analyses of the entire business provided the foundation for the investment decision by Tierps Tryckeri with its almost 100 years in the industry. New-generation infrastructure support has been provided by Gibon Gävle.
“This first deal in Sweden underlines how Konica Minolta is strengthening its position in the cut-sheet inkjet market as the AccurioJet KM-1 expands rapidly into new regions. Coupled with the patented Dot Freeze Technology™ and its proven reliability and productivity, the AccurioJet KM-1 is not only transforming our customers’ business but is now the backborne for Konica Minolta’s growth in the industrial print sector. This is the first of a number of announcements we will be making over the coming months. It comes as we continue to invest heavily in our people, service teams and, most importantly, business support programmes for our customers. We really are on a journey to make inkjet the reality for the commercial and packaging segments.”
Mark Hinder, Head of Market Development, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe
