The Gilman Brothers Company and Vanguard Digital Printing Systems have entered into a strategic alliance with the installation of a Vanguard VR5D flatbed UV printer at Gilman’s Connecticut headquarters. The addition of the VR5D printer will add greater opportunities for product testing and prototyping to the company’s Customer Experience Center (CEC), which already houses a ZÜND G3-2500 cutter. Visitors to the CEC will have an opportunity to see firsthand the printer’s performance when printing on Gilman Brothers products like INFINITY® styrene faced foamboard.

Visitors to the CEC will have an opportunity to see firsthand the printer’s performance when printing on Gilman Brothers products like INFINITY® styrene faced foamboard. The on-site printer will enable Gilman Brothers to offer prototype support for the wide format printing industry and will be available for premier customers needing prototype samples, sales kits etc. With the installation of the new printer, Gilman Brothers will have the ability to fully educate, discuss, assist and demonstrate various substrate options and potential applications.

 

“As we continue to exceed customer expectations throughout the entire supply chain – this is a perfect alignment with value added services. The ability to print our own in-house samples, offer 24-hour prototypes for printers, ad agencies and end-users will allow for not only seamless execution but test/develop new materials & technologies across the visual communications markets,” says Bill VanHorn, Director of Sales, Gilman Brothers.

 

“Gilman has been and continues to be at the forefront of driving value via their foamboard line of products. Their approach to the marketplace/supply chain is centered around a consultive approach across all levels of supply chain – it’s who I want to partner with,” says Dave Cich, CEO, Vanguard. Vanguard Digital Printing Systems introduced their flagship product, the VR5D wide format UV printer at the 2015 SGIA EXPO in Atlanta in early November, 2015. The VR5D utilizes a CMYK plus white ink system with the latest Ricoh Gen 5 print heads and proprietary BandGUARD™ technology. The Vanguard Digital Printing Systems flatbed UV printer combines revolutionary technology, industry leading quality and outstanding speeds to satisfy the most demanding environment. Vanguard is located in Suwanee, GA.
