Delphax Solution Incorporated (DSI – Mississauga, Ontario) an industry-leading digital inkjet press designer and manufacturer, has signed a reseller agreement with MD International Incorporated (MDI) located in Laval, Quebec. MDI is the latest company to formally sign up to DSI’s Sales Partnership Program that was announced in 2019, and enables MDI to represent DSI’s Elan line of high-performance colour and monochrome inkjet presses in the Quebec marketplace. “Having MD International represent us in the Quebec market provides a partner who understands production print, migration from offset to digital inkjet production, and the specific requirements of the Quebec marketplace,” said Richard Lee, CEO of Delphax Solutions. “Our products address a number of challenges facing print service providers in the region, and we are looking forward to working with the MDI team to offer our Canadian designed and manufactured solutions to ‘La Belle Province.’ ” Martin Charbonneau, President of MD International, added: “I look forward to this great relationship and I believe in inkjet technology. Delphax Solutions’ technology really impressed me in terms of quality and speed. MD International is proud to be Delphax’s agent in Quebec. There’s a definite need for this Elan inkjet solution for Quebec printers.”

The Delphax Elan 500 HD Press.

Driven by Memjet’s VersaPass technology with true 1,600 x 1,375 dpi CMYK printing, sheet sizes from 8” x 8” to 18” x 26” on a wide range of weights, and throughput of up to 500 letter impressions per minute, the Elan HD is “the leading choice for both variable and short-run publishing applications,” said the OEM. “The Elan platform has multi-year, production-proven reliability. Plus, its innovative design allows the system to be serviced by either DSI Technicians or customers’ own in-house technicians.” DSI and MDI will also be offering end users ‘No-Click’ options which, when combined with self-service option flexibility, ensures that the end user has “the most cost-effective offering of any sheetfed inkjet press in this class.” DSI’s HD M platform also extends this product’s performance to 400 impression per minute in monochrome – ideal for short turnaround, high-volume direct mail, personalization and book applications. Both solutions provide low total cost of ownership (TCO).
