Pankarte PLV, based in a 4000m2 building in Nordhouse near Strasbourg and close to the German border, was founded twenty years ago. Over the years the company has become a specialist in the design and manufacture of POS products, and its quality products and expertise are recognised by customers across the board in many household names from within the food, beauty and healthcare industries.
Already an Inca Onset user since 2010, the FSC-certified company has recently installed an Inca Onset S40 flatbed digital printer from Fujifilm to enable it to provide customers with top quality marketing collateral in the shortest turnaround times.
“We chose the Onset S40 printer because it is, quite simply, the best machine in the world,” says Michael Hartmann, managing director of Pankarte. “It is fast and produces great quality graphics, and the additional handling system has really sped up our production time. Our customers, many of whom are pioneers in their field, require suppliers such as us to push them to the limits. The Onset S40 allows us to do just this.”
The Inca Onset S40 prints at up to 470 sqm/hr (5,059 sq ft/hr) and offers ‘best-in-class’ quality and flexibility at a low cost per print. Providing outstanding levels of performance, it meets the high-volume, fast-turnaround production needs of specialist display print companies such as Pankarte.
“We are very, very happy with both the performance of the Onset S40 and the technical and sales support we received from Fujifilm – it has exceeded our expectations,” continues Michael.
“Pankarte is a key player in the French POS print market and has some important customers in Germany. We are delighted that they have chosen to work with Fujifilm and install an Inca Onset S40,” adds Philippe Vautier, Wide Format Inkjet Sales Manager at Fujifilm Graphic Systems France.
