Strengthens growing offering of print equipment for sign and display customers

Jacksonville, Fla. (January 04, 2017)Mac Papers, one of the largest industrial distributors in the Southeast, today announced that it has been named by CET Color, an award-winning manufacturer of digital UV wide-format printers and cutters, as a major distributor of its full line of equipment across the Southeast.

The agreement, effective October 1, 2016, aims to expand the range and sophistication of Mac Papers’ UV print equipment portfolio by adding a high-production line of affordable UV hybrid and flatbed printers. CET Color’s large-format vacuum table flatbed and hybrid roll-to-roll/flatbed UV printers utilize state-of-the-art UV curable ink sets that provide environmentally-friendly options to print on a wide range of substrates with a range of customizable, field-upgradable and easily maintained printer options.

“Because UV printing is the fastest-growing segment of our wide format business, and presents one of the biggest growth opportunities for our customers, the best value we provide as a distributor is the widest range of top UV printer options,” said Marty Davis, director of wide format & graphics. “Adding CET Color’s full line opens up new print potential and capabilities that give commercial printers more options to exceed customer expectations than ever before.”

The agreement furthers Mac Papers’ commitment to becoming the premier distributor for the commercial print industry, a company priority that was established in 2013. In 2014, the company signed on Mutoh and Kodak to its wide format lineup and then added Mimaki and Gandy Digital in 2015.

“We were searching for a partner with a solid reputation and a wide range of knowledge base in their industry,” said Javier Mahmoud, vice president of sales and marketing for CET Color. “Mac Papers is a perfect fit because of the company’s well-known expertise in the field of offset printing, and CET wants to align with a distributor of that caliber. This partnership benefits both companies by affording us the opportunity to expand our customer bases into new markets with which we haven’t previously connected.”

After participating in full-scale CET Color training program in January, Mac Papers technicians and wide-format specialists will be equipped to provide on-site installation and workflow expertise. In addition, Mac Papers offers a wide range of substrates compatible with CET Color’s equipment including rigid materials, banner rolls and vinyl.
