SOLON, Ohio – September 29, 2017 – Graphic Systems North America (GSNA), the exclusive authorized sales and service centers for RMGT presses in the United States and Canada, recently exhibited at the PRINT 17 trade show in Chicago to resounding success. Leading up to the show, RMGT publicized that the RMGT 9 Series press was the dominant 8-up press (36”/37”) in North America. By the end of PRINT 17, RMGT reports 23 presses being sold in 2017 alone, while achieving the milestone of selling the 50th 9 Series offset press in North America.
RMGT was one of more than 450 exhibitors at a show that drew more than 20,000 people through the doors. In the RMGT, Commit to Print booth, visitors saw the only offset press running live at the show. Again the RMGT 9 Series Press continued to fill the booth and isle ways with spectators hungry to learn more about offset and LED UV advancement. RMGT was one of a series of booths running live jobs in tandem—CRON ECRM was creating the plates for the RMGT 9 Series 8-color Perfecting Press with LED-UV and Coater, and because of the instant-dry capabilities of the press, the sheets were taken directly to the Horizon booth, where they were finished and distributed helping show real life application processes.
“We are incredibly pleased with how PRINT 17 went this year,” said Kian Hemmen, Western Regional RMGT Sales Manager, Print & Finishing Solutions. “We had a great crowd who were interested in how we are making shorter-run offset profitable—in some cases even more profitable than taking the job to a digital press. We are proving that offset isn’t dead by any stretch of the imagination, and there is still innovation happening in the space. We are exciting to work with many more printers in the coming months, as a direct result of PRINT 17.”
In addition, RMGT won a coveted MUST SEE ‘EMS award for the RMGT 920PF-8+CC+LED-UV 8 Color with Coater Perfecting Press in the Pressroom: Analog Presses category. In point of fact, RMGT took home the Best of Category honor for the press. “Winning the MUST SEE ‘EMS for the RMGT 920PF-8+CC+LED-UV 8 Color with Coater Perfecting Press is a huge honor,” said Hemmen. “We could not be more proud of this press. Our customers can’t stop talking about how much it is helping to grow their businesses and their bottom lines — this award just goes to show that the industry at large is recognizing the difference our presses can make.”
“At our annual GRAPH EXPO/PRINT show, we bring together our community of industry manufacturers, dealers, distributors and their attendee customers to grow their businesses and expand their knowledge through exhibits, education and relationship building,” said Thayer Long, President of NPES, in a statement. “Our promise for PRINT 17 was very clear: Learn it here, see it on the show floor, then go back to your businesses and do it! The show’s variety of learning opportunities provided attendees with education that will help them stay ahead as business and technology continue to evolve.”
