“Visitors to our stand were excited about the quality and capabilities we were able to show, especially with the JFX500-2131, and the preview of the JFX200-2513,” said Mike Horsten, general manager marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe, “Mimaki’s leadership position in the rapidly evolving wide format printing market was validated by the receipt of two Best of 2013 Awards, which was very exciting for all of us.”
Mimaki received the Viscom Best of 2013 Award in the Signmaking category for its CG-SRIII Series of Cutting Plotters.
