Grafiche Ambert Acquires a Scodix Ultra 6000 Press to Achieve Full-Service Print House Capacity

 Scodix, Israel, 3 February 2023 – Scodix, the leading provider of digital embellishment solutions for the graphic arts industry, today announces that Grafiche Ambert has acquired its very first Scodix Ultra 6000 Press. The ability to provide wider range in-house services and solutions to customers with little turnaround time have been cited as key motivators.

With over 40 years of experience in creating commercial applications within the publishing industry, Grafiche Ambert has printed well known book covers, leading magazines, and professional journals, alongside catalogs and other paper products. The company is looking ahead to maximize the full potential unleashed by the installation of its Scodix Ultra 6000 Press to provide a full-service print house, which has always been a philosophy for the company.

With the Scodix Ultra 6000 Press, Grafiche Ambert anticipates competing on a new level, ensuring a wider range of in-house enhancement capabilities and excellent product quality, with very little turnaround time.

“Investing in a Scodix press was the right answer to customer requests, as prior to the installation of the Scodix Ultra 6000 Press, we were having to externalise those processes, which cost us both time and money,” comments Alessandro Pistono, Grafiche Ambert’s Commercial Director. “Now, we can offer our customers cutting-edge enhancements and solutions in-house, all very quickly.”

The Scodix Ultra 6000 Press is renowned for its superior print embellishment solutions, with innovative technology that creates eye catching and unique products, requiring only minimal footprint area on the production floor with its standard press size. Using the new press guarantees that the team is fully equipped to answer the enhancement needs and requests of its customers, especially from the publishing houses who form its main customer base.

“We are delighted that Grafiche Ambert has acquired one of our presses and is already experiencing the benefits that Scodix technology brings,” says Franz Repp, Scodix President for EMEA. “The Scodix Ultra 6000 Press ensures excellent productivity with cutting-edge embellishment solutions that are designed to keep our customers ahead of the curve. We are very excited for Grafiche Ambert to achieve its goal of becoming a full-service print house, and we are honored that the Scodix Ultra 6000 Press has helped to make this possible.”
