SANTIAGO, Chile—Domino Digital Printing Solutions was delighted to welcome Francisco Fernández, director of Grafisoft, onto its stand during Labelexpo Europe 2019 when he came to sign the contract for a new distribution agreement with Domino. This new partnership will extend Domino’s presence in South America with Grafisoft becoming responsible for promoting sales of Domino’s N610i digital color inkjet label press and K600i monochrome printers throughout Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
Founded in 2000, with headquarters in Chile and offices in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Argentina, Grafisoft specializes in delivering integrated technological solutions to increase productivity and reduce cost to label and packaging converters, industrial manufacturers, brand owners and commercial printers. Through established business alliances with many of the leading technology brands in the graphic arts and digital printing industries, Grafisoft supplies industrial automation products and services, including an extensive range of printing technology, service and software solutions. Adding Domino to this list, Grafisoft will now promote, sell, train, service and support Domino’s N610i digital color inkjet label press and high-speed K600i monochrome printers through their existing sales and service network.
Manuel Hernández, business manager for Domino Digital Printing Solutions in Iberia and Latin America, said, “The Latin American label market is performing well with pressure-sensitive labels predicted to grow by 11 percent in value from 2018 – 2022 (according to Smithers Pira). Domino continues to see increased interest in digital inkjet technology from label converters in this region, so we are delighted to be expanding our presence in South America.
“We took our first step in August 2018, when we extended our distribution agreement with Sunnyvale, who had been the exclusive distributor of Domino’s range of coding and marking products in Brazil for over 30 years, to also include our digital printing solutions products. This new partnership now represents an exciting opportunity to drive growth and sales in these additional territories. Grafisoft has always placed great emphasis on delivering exceptional customer experience and service. We are confident that this, coupled with their digital and color management knowledge and expertise, will prove to be extremely successful for both of our businesses.”
Fernández commented: “We believe Domino is the market leader in providing digital inkjet printers and solutions, with its long and highly established brand name, heritage and trusted global reputation. We are convinced that inkjet technology is the future for the industry and we look forward to working closely with Domino, to mutually develop and grow our businesses.”
