Sakata INX worldwide operations announced that Italy’s Anteprima SRL will become a member of INX Digital, the digital arm of INX Group Limited. The agreement strengthens Anteprima’s ongoing relationships with other INX Digital members, along with its offerings of wide and super-wide format digital printing equipment, supplies and service.
“This joint venture adds important new dimensions to our ability to service digital printing operations throughout Europe and elsewhere,” said INX International president and CEO Rick Clendenning. “As an established leader with strong distribution and a solid customer base, Anteprima’s recognized engineering expertise further positions us to develop and deliver leading-edge systems and services to the fast-growing digital industry.”
Anteprima President Paolo Capano said, “The evolution of our relationship with INX attests to the success of our mutual efforts to date. This agreement opens avenues to additional resources and support for our existing operations, as well as additional new product development in all areas.”
Under the new arrangement, two Anteprima-engineered wide format printers, the San Francisco and UV-curable Milano, will continue to be distributed in the Americas by INX Digital member Triangle Digital INX Co. (TDI). Likewise, Anteprima will continue to distribute TDI’s lineup of digital ink products in Italy and other parts of Europe.
“Anteprima’s engineering expertise and involvement with equipment manufacturers, media and related supply sources ensures a steady flow of new opportunities for advanced-product offerings, along with integration know-how to help users move up to next-generation digital systems," Mr. Clendenning added.
Anteprima SRL, based near Milan, Italy, serves customers with a full range of digital printing inks, bulk ink delivery systems and related supplies, plus advance-engineered wide format equipment throughout Europe and beyond, via affiliated distributors.
