Screen has announced a South African sales partnership agreement with Thunderbolt Solutions. According to Thunderbolt Solutions CEO Gerry Baker, Screen is a well-known and highly regarded company within the industry, particularly with regards to the quality and reliability of its products.

The agreement encompasses distribution of Screen’s flagship Truepress Jet520HD high-definition inkjet web press, which Screen recently announced has shipped over 100 units. ‘Thunderbolt Solutions was founded in 1999 and provides a vast array of services across the printing market,’ said Baker. ‘As such, our industry and regional knowledge allows us to offer Screen customers highly skilled technical services along with first-rate commercial and after-sales support. Our passionate team is dedicated to digital printing solutions in South Africa and consulting with PSPs on their digital transformation.’

The Screen Truepress Jet520HD series are high-definition inkjet web presses with a true print resolution of 1200dpi and precise droplet size control at up to 150 metres per minute. The addition of Screen SC inks continues to provide the same wide colour gamut and stability as the standard Truepress inks whilst also featuring Screen’s unique absorption technology unlocking an extended range of substrates.

Baker added, ‘We have previous experience through distribution of Screen CTP solutions for over a year. This is an exciting period in the development of inkjet printing, and we are looking forward to continuing to work with Screen to boost sales in South Africa.’

Steve Low, vice president service and support Screen Europe stated, ‘There’s a lot of interest in South Africa in the advantages in Screen’s inkjet technology. Thunderbolt Solutions is a distributor that perfectly matches our ambitions in the region, and their industry-knowledge is second to none. We’re looking forward to a long and successful partnership.’
