German printer chooses second generation inkjet device for ‘outstanding print quality.’

Fujifilm announces that print service provider Straub Druck + Medien AG is the first company in Germany to invest in its second generation J Press 720S digital inkjet press. One of the key factors that influenced the company’s decision was the ultra-high print quality of the J Press 720S.

The investment in the new press, which is driven and controlled by Fujifilm’s XMF Workflow, is part of the company’s long-term expansion plans, with the company looking to successively replace the existing in-house offset printing presses by the J Press 720S.

“The J Press 720S offers enormous potential with the excellent print quality that it delivers and the speed at which we can change between jobs,” said Francisco Martinez, chairman of the board, Straub Druck + Medien AG.

Founded over 130 years ago, Straub Druck + Medien AG is based in Schramberg in the Black Forest, Germany, and currently employs over 80 people. The company produces a range of high-quality printed products, both long and short run, including annual reports, brochures, scratch-and-sniff calendars and mailings for regional, national and international customers. It also offers a wide variety of processing and finishing options for all applications, and has huge experience in digital printing.

“Straub Druck + Medien AG’s investment underlines the enormous potential of the J Press 720S in terms of flexibility, cost-efficiency and high added value,” added Dirk Mussenbrock, regional sales manager, J Press Series, Fujifilm. “We’re looking forward to develop this partnership with a print service provider that sees the massive potential of the J Press 720S and high quality sheet-fed inkjet printing.”
