Sakurai USA recently hosted one of its most successful open house events to date, which attracted representatives from over 60 companies, as well as Sakurai dealers, agents and industry suppliers to its Corporate Headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois.
“We were very pleased at the level of interest and enthusiasm across our entire product line of offset and screen press systems as and ancillary equipment,” said David Rose, General Manager, Sakurai USA, Inc. “Customers were in a buying mode and multiple firm orders were accepted for both offset and Cylinder Screen Presses during the two-day run of our open house, which was remarkable in today’s still challenging economy.”
Highlighting the Sakurai Open House were live demonstrations of two sheetfed offset presses, including a Sakurai 6-color 675SDC with coater and a 4-color 80SD Series, with both presses operating at 15,000 IPH. In addition, Sakurai conducted live demonstrations of two Cylinder Screen Presses running specialty effects printing and spot coating on a Maestro 102AII and printed electronics on a MS-80SD with its industry first optical registration system.
“An added benefits of a successful Open House was that we solidified relationships with our customers as well as with the Sakurai’s dealers in attendance. In addition, we have expanded our Authorized Dealer Network to now offer coverage and service in all 50 states,” Rose added.
Also participating in the Open House to lend his support and welcome guests was Ryuta Sakurai, President of Sakurai USA, Inc. and Sakurai Graphic Systems Japan.
