EFI and Konica Minolta expand on business agreement
EFI and Konica Minolta Business Solutions (KMBS) are strengthening their partnership. Under the new agreement KMBS and its authorized dealer network will sell and service EFI wide-format LED and UV inkjet printers.

The non-exclusive agreement will give KMBS access to the wide-format production offerings that EFI provides.

“This new agreement expands upon our long term partnership with EFI,” Kevin P. Kern, senior vice president, marketing at KBMS said. “The unique attributes of EFI’s inkjet products allow us to offer new capabilities to our graphic communications customers, providing them access to new markets for high-value print.”

“EFI has longstanding, successful strategic alliance with KMBS centered on the development of EFI Fiery products for Konica Minolta production equipment, and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to expand our partnership,” said Frank Mallozzi, EFI’s senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing. “We are excited that KMBS, with its extensive distribution and deep relationship with customers, chose EFI wide format products as a high-quality inkjet graphics platform to offer to its customers.”

EFI’s hybrid roll/flatbed wide-format printer, the EFI H1625 LED is the first product available in KMBS sales channels through the new agreement. The H1625 is a 65" wide printer with high-end imaging and uses four colour grayscale printheads.  It offers white ink, for projects like backlit signage and aluminum, and “cool cure” LED technology that reduces the printers energy consumption and costs compared to arc lamp UV and latex inkjet printers. It also prints on a wide range of substrates including media that cannot withstand high-heat drying or curing methods.
