Fujifilm partners with Modico to bolster sales in Europe

Germany-based dealer for the Acuity Prime series

Acuity Prime 30 wide format press is easy to use and able to deliver numerous prints per day.

Fujifilm recently announced a strategic partnership with Germany-based print dealership Modico and confirms that Modico’s first customer is a graphic design firm, Tom Fox. The dealer is set to increase the market presence of the Acuity Prime series in Germany, France, Italy, and Spain – and has already sold its first two printers to graphic design business Tom Fox.

The strategic partnership will see Modico taking on commercial distribution responsibilities across selected countries in Europe for the flatbed series, which includes the Acuity Prime 20, 30, and L models. The dealer’s first Acuity Prime 30 customer, graphic design firm Tom Fox, is headquartered in Schwendi-Hörenhausen in Germany, manufacturing fun, novelty products including LED coasters, ‘Walk of Fame’ star mats, personalized boxes, and band signs.

Winfried Wagner, managing director at Tom Fox, says he sought out reliable machines that could operate consistently at high speeds and with little maintenance required, to meet the demands of his customers. The company has already installed an Acuity Prime 30 at its premises – and has invested in the larger model, the Acuity Prime L, which will be installed in the upcoming weeks.

Wagner said “Both the Acuity Prime 30 and Acuity Prime L wide format presses are easy to use and able to deliver numerous prints per day – the quality of which is at the high standard that our customers expect. They also have very quick start-up times, enabling us to print almost immediately after they have been switched on. This again helps us to maximize our productivity.”

Colm Garvey, dealer manager at Fujifilm wide format inkjet systems, comments “The Acuity Prime range was expertly designed from the ground up with the user in mind. That’s why it has won Red Dot, Good Design, and iF Design awards for its impeccable features. Our new partnership with Modico will help us to continue serving our wide format customers across Europe and will ensure they can maximize their ROI.”

Modico’s CEO Joachim Kuon, notes: “It’s a pleasure to be working with Fujifilm to sell the Acuity Prime range. Fujifilm has a proven record of excellence, and the team is collaborative, and professional and gave us excellent, straightforward training on the press. I look forward to seeing how our partnership develops throughout 2023 and beyond.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
