Mutoh enters into distribution agreement with Summa

Combo Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1604X printer & SummaCut D140FX cutter

Mutoh Belgium has entered into a distribution agreement with Summa Europe.

Under the terms of this agreement, Mutoh has been appointed as non-exclusive EMEA distributor for a selected number of Summa vinyl cutters, i.e. the SummaCut series (D60, D140 and D160, respectively 60 cm, 135 cm and 158 cm cutting width) and SummaCut D140FX (135 cm cutting width) drag knife cutters and the S-Class 2 160T (158 cm cutting width) high end tangential cutter.

The above-mentioned Summa cutter models will be marketed alongside Mutoh’s existing ValueCut series drag knife cutting plotters and will be distributed to Mutoh’s EMEA wide network of authorised resellers through the Mutoh sales offices Mutoh Belgium n.v. and Mutoh Deutschland GmbH. Mutoh will ensure the distribution, sales, marketing, training and after-sales support towards its reseller channel.

“We are delighted to cooperate with the best known brand for vinyl cutting plotters in the industry and to extend our product range with a number of Summa cutters,” says Nick Decock, Mutoh Belgium’s Commercial Marketing Manager. “The Summa cutters represent a great match for our high quality and multi award winning ValueJet series sign & display printers. Our ambition is to offer professional, productive and fully integrated dual-device print-to-cut workflow solutions. With the combo ValueJet printer and SummaCut vinyl cutter, we will be able to further exploit our dual-device print-to-cut philosophy, by offering two separate systems which offer a higher degree of flexibility, better tracking, higher accuracy and last but not least a much better productivity versus integrated print & cut systems”, Decock concludes.

“We are very pleased to cooperate with the industry pioneer and today’s market leader for eco-solvent wide format printers”, says Geert Pierloot, Summa’s Business Development and Marketing Manager. “The reputation of Mutoh’s Japan-built ValueJet printer line is very strong in the market. Our cooperation with Mutoh offers us the possibility to extend sales opportunities for our cutting plotters to Mutoh’s extensive network of experienced sign & display resellers”, Pierloot concludes.
