ROCHESTER, NY | Kodak is expanding its Gold Reseller Network to meet the needs of customers needing immediate access to products, service, and expertise. The Network is composed of highly trained and experienced channel partners who are committed to and aligned with Kodak’s vision for the graphics business, company says. Gold Resellers will carry Kodak’s full portfolio of solutions and services for prepress and packaging customers in regions all across the US and Canada.
“Our commitment to providing world-class solutions and meeting the individual needs of our customers is what drives us every day,” says John O’Grady, Kodak’s managing director, US and Canada Region, and VP, Eastman Kodak Co. “The introduction of this new distribution network will give our customers access to the solutions they need from trusted, proven suppliers who understand their businesses and the nuances of the graphic communications market. We are designing this network to give us maximum coverage while complementing the existing Kodak infrastructure.”
Reportedly, Gold Resellers help ensure that Kodak maintains more localized inventory, local distribution, enhanced sales coverage, and improved access for customers. Gold Resellers also develop important relationships with clients and are able to work with them to provide expanded services, such as financing and credit.
Kodak’s Gold Reseller Network includes: Advantage Litho Supply; G.E. Richards Graphic Supplies Co.; Mueller Graphic Supply; The Oldham Group; S+A Scharfstein (SAS) Graphic Supply; Spicers Canada; Spicers Paper; and the newest member, Great Western Ink.
Great Western Ink, with offices in Oregon, Washington, and California, has been providing ink solutions and printing supplies to clients since 1925. “Being named a Gold Reseller by Kodak is an important step for us and will improve the service we offer our clients,” says Keith Voigt, president of Great Western Ink. “Kodak solutions play a key role in our extensive portfolio, and we know our clients will benefit from this new, extended relationship.…”
