PrintEx News: Kuhn invests in Ricoh
Walter Kuhn, CEO of Kuhn Corp, has signed a deal to purchase the Ricoh Pro C7210x digital press at PrintEx.
Speaking to Print21 at the show, Kuhn said it would enable his company to expand its short-run printing capabilities.
“It’s replacing one of our machines with better technology. It’s an all-around better machine.
“We did a fair bit of analysis on the output of the machine as well as the cost to run it, and believed it was the best investment,” he said.
According to Roberta Van Trier, senior account manager at Ricoh Brisbane, the deal was years in the making.
“We had an understanding on his business and what he wanted to achieve in output, getting close to offset with a digital product. Walter came in and had a demonstration, and I believe we were able to tick all the boxes for him,” she said.
Michael Leins, production analyst at Ricoh, said he was glad to strengthen the company’s relationship with Kuhn Corp.
“We’re always looking forward to having good partnerships with our customers and allowing them to be more productive.
“At the end of the day, when our customers are doing business, that’ll be good for us as well,” he said.
