Digital Printing Providers Merge
Published: October 25th, 2012
Digital Printing Solutions Technologies and Graph-Tech USA have announced a merger that combines 35 years of digital experience and the product and imaging applications unique to each company.
Joining forces in a new 12,000 sq ft Fort Pierce, FL facility, DPST will continue its brand and customer focused marketing strength as a division of Graph-Tech USA.
According to Roger Potvin, founder of DPST and Card Systems & Ink Solutions, “This gives both DPST and GT-USA the opportunity to enhance our product both on the ink side of the business as well as in application and equipment technology, while improving service and response for our current customers as well as those entering the market. Many new entries to variable information printing need just the kind of support and training we provide as a regular part of our relationships.”
Markus Portmann, founder of Graph-Tech, noted that GT-USA has decades of expertise in inkjet systems and controllers, technical service, repairs, and custom systems consulting.
“The synergies of the combined companies will greatly expand our ability to integrate cutting-edge technology into standard as well as customized systems. We see this as another way to streamline customer support and provide added value to the entire digital printing experience,” he said.
DPST and GT-USA have been working closely on projects for some time. Mike Mitchell, DPST’s director and co-owner sites his company’s focus and dedication to customer service and support as the foundation of the merger. “This merger will allow us to continually improve the creative, cost effective solutions we have worked at from the start. We see this contributing to even more helpful and timely responses to industry needs and demands,” he said.
The new center for the combined digital technology will offer complete demonstration systems, inkjet repair clean room services, advanced customer/operator training, and ink development and research all geared to the growth of high-speed print related products and service.
