- First exclusive distribution of Intec Printers in India
- Will grow niche speciality printing market and provide best ROI to customers
HCL Infosystems Ltd. India’s premier Services and ICT Systems Integration, Distribution and Hardware Company today announced its exclusive tie up with Intec for distribution of its Speciality Printing Systems across the country. This is for the first time that Intec heavy stock and media printers will be distributed throughout India at a very competitive price point. The partnership will create market differentiation and enhance a fast growing niche market as it will provide commercial printers with heavy stock and specialist printing capabilities.
The exclusive partnership will bring special benefits for the printing and packaging industry in India as Intec’s cutting edge technology combines with HCL Infosystems’ vast distribution network. The Intec Specialist Printing Machine with printing above 300 GSM is beyond the capabilities of the currently available systems in India. Moreover this will be backed with a robust and trained HCL team which will help customers with effective technical support to make the most out of the machine. Service support will be provided by the Premium HCL Service under HCL Care, HCL Infosystems’ Service and Support Division.
Speaking about the tie up, Mr. M Chandrasekaran Sr. VP and Head of Office Automation, HCL Infosystems said, “We are delighted to partner with Intec and create a new niche market opportunity in the printing industry in India. This association will further complement and strengthen our portfolio and bring a world class product to Indian customers. There is hardly any alternative available for the Intec Printers in the Indian market; also service support has always been an issue with customers for such printing systems. Our widespread distribution and service network will further create the right mix in making a successful impact in the rapidly growing Indian digital print market with the Intec printing systems.”
Kerry Button, International Sales Director at Intec Printing Solutions Limited, says: “After the training that myself and Andy Withall delivered, HCL’s expert team are now doing what all good partners should do – they are slowly introducing the range to customers, which is a very sensible step indeed. It is all about ensuring that they do not over promise and under deliver and I am confident in their abilities. HCL’s efforts are paying off. We are delighted with the progress HCL is making.”
Industry players who migrate to heavy stock or specialised printing are expected to register substantial growth in their business. Customers of the Intec Printing System will enjoy low cost of ownership, faster return on investment, unique production capabilities which will open new markets and opportunities, easy to use compact design, compatibility with other digital presses and low maintenance with easy access to consumables. Apart from Heavy stock (300- 600 GSM) paper, the Intec speciality printer can print on any surface and substrate such as corrugated sheets, wedding cards and automobile bodies. This printing solution will bring immense business benefits for commercial printers, print shops and media companies, advertising agencies and organizations engaged in the graphic arts.
Intec Printing Solutions Limited, the manufacturer and distributor of colour heavy stock digital printers, is headquartered in Dorset, UK. Its roots date back to 1989 when founder and Managing Director Ian Melville established the company. Intec also has offices and warehouse facilities in Tampa, Florida, USA.
