Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada), a leading provider of production printing systems, based in Mississauga, Ontario, has announced a national distribution agreement with Electronics For Imaging (EFI) to market, service and support the EFI line of wide-format and VUTEk printing solutions. The agreement is effective immediately, and the two companies have already started a comprehensive roll-out plan that will take advantage of Konica Minolta’s established, nationwide sales and service expertise and coverage.
The partnership between Konica Minolta and EFI has been established for some time, with Konica Minolta selling EFI Fiery Digital Front Ends (DFEs) for Konica Minolta digital printers and presses, and distributing the EFI H1625 LED wide-format printer. This recent agreement will also include all EFI wide-format inkjet solutions, including VUTEk superwide hybrid, roll-to-roll and soft-signage fabric printers.
“We are pleased to be able to announce our ongoing partnership with EFI with this national distribution agreement,” said Chris Dewart, President and CEO of Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada). “By combining the EFI line-up with our current wide-format offerings, we are able to provide our clients with more opportunities to differentiate themselves in their markets. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to help our clients expand their services and grow their margins, and now they can enjoy our partnership with EFI as we bring more wide-format solutions to Canada.”
“Konica Minolta is a longstanding and trusted partner of EFI globally, and we are excited about the expansion of this partnership with Konica Minolta Business Solutions in Canada,” said Ken Hanulec, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, EFI. “We have a growing base of joint customers in Canada who’ll benefit from the new opportunities available with high-end ,wide-format production solutions that provide exceptional value and quality.”
