Printing company Marathon Graphics has expanded its range of services by purchasing several Xerox digital presses from Bytes Document Solutions (BDS). Most recently, the company invested in a Xerox Phaser 3635 MFP and a Xerox WorkCentre 5655 MFP. Over the years these have included a Xerox DocuColor 240 digital printer and a Xerox 6050 wide format scanner, printer and copier.

The company offers large format printing, banner printing, vinyl printing and cutting, canvas printing and stretched framing, as well as bulk photocopying services which are expected to substantially increase its revenue stream.
Jason Morris, co-owner of Marathon Graphics said, ‘Marathon Graphics is a family-owned business with more than three decades of experience. Our industry is constantly changing and it’s important to keep up to date with current market trends and ever-changing technology developments. We have high-level expertise in CAD plotting, plan printing and reproduction services, and we’ve incorporated digital printing into our offering to meet increasing market needs for these services.’
The Xerox DocuColor 240, the smallest device in its class, delivers up to 50 colour pages per minute while taking up very little space in a busy print shop. It has a ‘load while run’ function, which allows the user to replenish the toner without the need for interrupting a job run. This keeps productivity at its peak.
For wide format needs, the Xerox 6050 scanner, printer and copier, boosts Marathon Graphics’ productivity with quick print speeds, multitasking capabilities, and large media capacity. ‘The device fits easily into our workflow by supporting multiple data formats and print drivers,’ says Morris. ‘It consolidates the functions of several devices to become a centre for productivity, and it’s also easy to operate with an intuitive interface.’
The Xerox Phaser 3635 MFP multifunction printer, which has a large colour touchscreen, comes with USB flash drive printing and scanning which is not supported by many competitive products, and also has a larger standard hard drive. It’s compact, and yet offers a fast and efficient all-in-one solution.
The Xerox WorkCentre 5655 printer, copier and scanner has the fastest effective print speed in the industry due to the advanced design of the Xerox SMart Controller. It also allows document-related software applications to be accessed on the user interface to improve workflow and minimise time at the device.
‘The Xerox devices are allowing Marathon Graphics to grow and expand, while also achieving greater cost control and maximising uptime,’ said Paul Haglich, marketing manager for production systems at BDS. ‘Xerox’s advanced digital printing technology and services enable the right printing applications to grow your business and boost your profits. These presses provide end-to-end solutions for printing applications and help Marathon Graphics expand its client base and increase loyalty from existing customers.’
