Ricoh’s rapidly evolving portfolio will show FESPA visitors how they can profitably diversify their service capabilities and explore new markets.

Ricoh USA, Inc. has announced Cirrus Visual has added a new chapter to the story of its ongoing growth and partnership with Ricoh, adding capacity to support its digital print business, which has increased by 60 percent since adding Ricoh five-color presses in 2016. Since moving into a new, larger facility, Cirrus Visual's expanded service offerings, high-quality applications and fast turnarounds have proven incredibly popular, to the point that demand began to outpace capacity. With the implementation of a RICOH Pro C9210, the print provider has been able to further expand its digital print business, driving faster turnaround times, greater customization and more competitive pricing. At the same time, the C9210's vast media flexibility has greatly expanded Cirrus Visual's design team's creative toolbox.

At a time when customers expect high quality and fast turnaround, this flatbed delivers both in an intuitive way that allows operators to hit the ground running and produce high impact products for their customers.

Progressive printers and Sign and Display specialists’ needs for faster short run production, broader job capabilities and enhanced productivity will be met by Ricoh‘s two new next generation Ricoh Pro™ L5130/L5160 latex roll-to-roll printers.
