With an ongoing commitment to develop new and innovative products and solutions, and the ability to showcase and demonstrate these technologies, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division has begun a significant renovation at its Technology Center in Hanover Park, Illinois.
Construction is underway to more than double the size of the current Technology Center with the new space expanding to encompass over 20,000 square feet to display everything from traditional offset printing to the latest technologies in flexography, wide format, and production inkjet solutions. The expanded Technology center will showcase Fujifilm Brillia HD plates and platesetter solutions, the complete range of award winning J Press sheet fed and roll fed inkjet solutions, and Xerox toner based production presses. Also featured will be entry to mid-range roll to roll, flatbed and hybrid wide format presses including the production powerhouse Inca Onset series of UV flatbed presses, the versatile Uvistar and the popular Acuity Advance Select and Acuity LED. The Graphium UV inkjet web press for labels, packaging and specialty print, plus the new Clarity flexo print for packaging will be on display. Fujifilm XMF workflow solutions including ColorPath color management software will also be demonstrated.
The current Technology Center in Hanover Park will continue to host customer demos and events throughout the entire renovation process.
“A key success factor in our future growth will be to showcase and demonstrate all of our innovative solutions at a centrally located Technology Center,” said Todd Zimmerman, vice president and general manager, FUJFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “The new world-class Technology Center will be an industry destination, and our Chicagoland location is convenient for customers to visit. This substantial renovation reinforces our dedication and commitment to inkjet leadership and innovations in print technology. We look forward to hosting many more events in Hanover Park, including our highly successful Technology Summits.”
The renovations are expected to be fully completed later this summer.
