Fujifilm in major Max deal - Fujifilm to supply 200 Epson wide format printers on top of the 40 already installed in Max Spielmann branches around the UK.
Fujifilm has announced a major agreement with Max Spielmann to supply the leading high street photo chain with an additional 200 Epson wide format printers on top of the 40 already installed in its branches around the UK.
The deal follows a meeting at the PMA Convention and Trade Show in America last year between James Timpson, managing director of Timpson the owner of Max Spielmann, and representatives from Fujifilm.
Robin Hamblett, Senior Business Manager from Fujifilm, explains more: "During the meeting in Anaheim James Timpson made it clear he was keen to make speedy progress in enhancing the photo offering in Max Spielmann stores, so once we were back in the UK we worked closely with the team at Epson to provide them with the solution they required."
Following a thorough product evaluation the team at Max Spielmann decided the Epson 7900 24in was the printer to take their stores to the next level. This evaluation showed the Epson 7900 to out-perform its competitors in all the key areas - print quality, speed of operation and lower running costs.
The introduction of the Epson 7900 and its swift return on investment has accelerated the replacement of Max Spielmann's older equipment with the initial order for 140 units being quickly increased to 200.
Peter Wigington, Marketing Manager for Fujifilm Photo Imaging Group reacted to the news: "We're delighted to be able to help Max Spielmann increase their wide format presence and also pleased to announce that Fujifilm will now be supplying the chain with all their media. With over 200 locations across Britain, the management team at Max Spielmann needed to make the correct decision for them and for their customers so it's very encouraging that they chose us, this is a real 'feather in the Fujifilm cap'."
Max Spielmann’s Digital Director, Ivan Sestan says: “We are very satisfied with what Fujifilm have done on such a large project.”
