Fujifilm has announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with Germany-based print dealership Modico and confirms that Modico’s first customer is graphic design firm 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.
Modico’s first Acuity Prime 30 customer, graphic design firm Tom Fox, is headquartered in Schwendi-Hörenhausen in Germany. It manufactures fun, novelty products including LED coasters, “Walk of Fame” star mats, personalised boxes and band signs.
Winfried Wagner, Managing Director at Tom Fox, said he sought out reliable machines that could operate consistently at high speeds and with little maintenance required, in order 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 coming weeks.
Wagner says: “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 maximise 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 are able to maximise 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, professional and gave us excellent, straightforward training on the press. I look forward to seeing how our partnership develops throughout 2023 and beyond.”
