Associated Printing Productions Moves up to Canon imagePRESS C6010 Digital Press

Océ, a Canon Group company and an international leader in digital document management, announced that Associated Printing Productions, Inc. (APPi) has installed a Canon imagePRESS C6010 digital press.

The new system has already brought dividends to the Miami Lakes, Fla.-based commercial printing company. “The imagePRESS C6010 system has allowed us to expand our digital printing capabilities with more in-line features and more automation than ever before,” said John Beadel, Vice President at APPi. Beadel continued, “The consistent, high-quality of the imagePRESS has truly impressed our sales team and has facilitated our success in gaining new digital printing work.”

The award-winning company, co-founded in 1991 by Rick and John Beadel, has earned a reputation in South Florida as a leader in the high-end commercial print industry. APPi has continuously sought out the latest technology, new techniques, and methods of optimizing the print process. The acquisition of the imagePRESS C6010 digital press, which prints, folds, and stitches in-line, continues this long-standing tradition. “The imagePRESS C6010 digital press allows us to expedite and optimize the entire process. We’ve also been able to reduce our turnaround times without increasing staff,” said Beadel.

Digital Press Speed with an Offset Look and Feel

Commercial printers like APPi are choosing the imagePRESS C6010 digital press for its ease of use and its productivity, but also for its quality, according to Francis McMahon, Vice President, Marketing, Production Printing Systems division of Océ North America. “The imagePRESS C6010 digital press not only powers through demanding volumes at speeds of more than 60 images per minute, it also delivers vibrant color quality output with the look and feel of offset,” said McMahon.

The offset quality of the imagePRESS C6010 digital press has been a key motivator for the Associated Printing Productions’ sales team. “Our salespeople have eagerly embraced the quality and the consistency of the imagePRESS, and their enthusiasm has now spread to our clients. Our digital press department is busier than ever!” said Beadel.

Océ Sales and Support Staff: “Incredibly Impressive”

Print providers choose Océ for their high-quality, reliable products. But service and support are equally important, and printers like Associated Printing Productions choose Océ as well for their knowledgeable and professional sales and support staff. “I am incredibly impressed with the sales and support staff at Océ. In fact, I’ve never dealt with a more well-rounded group with such a high level of knowledge,” said Beadel. “It’s been a pleasure working with Océ and a good experience all around. I’d recommend them to anyone.”
