Fujifilm South Africa and Intamarket Graphics signed an official agreement on 14 August that entails Intamarket providing Fujifilm’s leading range of UV wide format inkjet products to the South African market.
‘In line with our vision to become a one stop solutions supplier to our customer base, we identified a gap in our portfolio: a range of high end grand format roll to roll and flatbed printers,’ said Gavin Turner, Managing Director of Intamarket Graphics. ‘With our focus on representing Blue Chip Companies and through engaging with Fujifilm South Africa, we came to a mutual realisation that our businesses complemented each other and thus formed a distribution partnership. We believe this will not only be a win-win for for both parties, but a win-win for the market as well.’
Speaking of the decision to partner with Intamarket, Fujifilm South Africa’s Managing Director, Takeo Hata, said, ‘Intamarket is a well known and respected supplier in the wide format print industry. Fujifilm’s excellence in this industry will complement Intamarket’s offerings and give an advantage to their customers in the market. We are extremely proud to appoint Intamarket as a distributor, as they provide quality brands and have a national footprint to serve their customers.’
‘Fujifilm South Africa will continue with direct sales of our products, but the partnership with Intamarket will allow both companies to combine our extensive market experience and will enhance Fujifilm’s market coverage and awareness of our unique print application solutions.’
Intamarket will exhibit the Acuity 15 flatbed printer on their stand at the Africa Print Expo. The printer is a highly-capable introduction model that offers smaller print producers entry into the world of high-quality UV flatbed printing. It delivers quality printing in the same robust platform as the Acuity 20/30 printers, at a price positioned for light production and entry-level industrial environments.
