The print industry is rapidly changing. Customers are focused on adopting digital printing strategies to enable business growth and stay aligned with the market and competition.  

Consumers have high expectations from print service providers and the technology that is used for their requests. Printing presses want to do more, with less, they want new technology and enhancements to set them apart from competition and to be able to offer end customers a better product. They are now investing in the latest technologies from IoT, Cloud and AI-based solutions to laser, digital and inkjet print solutions to drive revenue and profits. Personalisation is key to this, and only possible on Digital presses.

GM Global Links International, a UAE based group of companies specialized in printing & advertising, general trading, logistics and distribution and real estate has recently invested in their first Xerox® Iridesse® Digital Production Press to grow their business with revenue – driving digital enhancements for their printing press Pen Paper Industries LLC.

Sumit Prakash, Chairman of GM Global Links International group of companies said, “We were ready to invest in a digital production press that could help us expand our current applications, be able to work across multiple media capabilities and eventually take our business to the next level. After a lot of research, the final decision was between Fuji and Xerox.”

“We signed the deal with Xerox Emirates for our first Xerox® Iridesse® Production Press as this is the first and only xerographic digital press that can print CMYK and up to two Specialty Dry Inks, that include Gold, Silver, White and Clear, in a single pass, at rated speed, with spot-on registration. Also, the new Extra Long Sheets are made easy with the Xerox® High Capacity XLS Vacuum Feeder, will help us unlock more productivity for sheets up to 1200mm long which will solve many issues that we used to face before.”

“This made the most business sense for our printing press which opens a new world of opportunity for us to deliver a ‘wow’ factor to our customers. Xerox Emirates has the best post sales service which is critical for any business to maintain uptime.” Sumit concluded.

Simon Howells, General Manager, Xerox Emirates commented, “We are delighted to work with GM Global links and welcome this partnership. It’s all about high-value, high-impact applications and digital enhancements that add value to jobs produced on this press. I am confident that their investment in the Xerox® Iridesse® will contribute to accelerating the growth of GM Global Links. With the increasing shift to shorter runs, personalisation and value-added designs, GM Global Links will be well positioned to capitalise on the changing market dynamics”.
