ASL becomes key UK supplier for Kodak’s Nexpress solutions

Kodak and UK managed-office services supplier ASL Group have announced a reseller agreement under which ASL will become a key supplier of Kodak Nexpress Digital Presses.

Complementing Kodak’s existing sales team, ASL will offer Kodak Nexpress Presses to its commercial print customers through its network of 11 locations across the UK.

“Printers who have added digital printing to their portfolio of services are increasingly looking for technology that gives them the flexibility to move more high-volume jobs from their offset machines, while also delivering short-run and customised jobs with exceptional quality,” said Darren Chard, UK sales and marketing director, Kodak.

“Our partnership with ASL will help more printers across the UK integrate the highest quality production level digital print technology into their operations while receiving exceptional support and services from Kodak’s dedicated team of service professionals.”

ASL works with over 6,000 customers nationally, delivering impartial advice and consultancy to companies looking to increase productivity, drive better business performance, and reduce costs. ASL’s Commercial and Industrial Print Division has just recorded its record year. It assists customers in moving to a digital printing platform with independent knowledge and recommendations.

“Our vendor-neutral approach allows us to recommend the best technology for each individual client,” said Will Doherty, commercial and industrial printing systems director at ASL. “The partnership with Kodak represents a significant milestone for ASL as we continue to develop our portfolio of products in the commercial print space. We are delighted to be adding the Nexpress platform to our range and look forward to working closely with Darren and his team.”

The Nexpress Platform allows inline coating, glossing, or a fifth colour to expand the printing gamut and reproduce spot colours. With reliable, consistent image quality and a duty cycle of 5,000 A4/letter sheets per hour, the Nexpress Press is ideal for small to medium-sized commercial printers, in-plants, and digital service bureaus.

ASL will start selling Kodak’s portfolio of Nexpress from October 2019.
