We were introduced to ICI through our partnership with print technology manufacturer Heidelberg, to which we provide digital production print technology. When our latest digital colour printer was launched, we installed a unit at ICI so its students and team members would have access to this unique technology with a fifth colour station for applying white, clear, neon or security pink to printed material. The system also came with the latest colour management software and in-line finishing.
After installation, we trained ICI team members and instructors to use the technology and leverage its unique features, in particular, the fifth colour station. We also made our service team available to provide a quick, expert response to any questions or technical issues ICI had.
As a result, Ricoh and ICI have a partnership agreement that is mutually beneficial. ICI receives the latest digital colour production print technology for its training, consulting and research endeavors. And Ricoh, in turn, is able to demonstrate its cutting edge production print technology to other printers looking to enhance their capabilities or expand their offerings.
