Founded in the mid-1980s, imprimerie RGI is a commercial print business in Saint-Thibault-des-Vignes, east of Paris. For nearly 40 years the company has been producing a huge range of applications for a wide variety of clients and, over this time, it has developed a deserved reputation for exceptional quality and outstanding customer service.
In early 2022 the company decided to make its first digital print investment and, after carefully considering all the options on the market, they installed a Jet Press 750S High Speed model from Fujifilm.
“Covid-19 has changed everything,” says Jean-François Le Borgne, Associate Director, RGI. “It’s changed the way we work, and it’s really turned our industry upside down. We were already seeing a market trend towards targeted, high quality, short run print jobs and the pandemic has massively accelerated that trend.”
Despite an existing, strong relationship with Fujifilm, having been a plates customer for the past ten years, the company directors were determined to carefully consider all their digital press investment options to ensure they picked the right option for their business. “It’s nice to be able to develop our partnership with Fujifilm, but we picked the Jet Press 750S High Speed model on its merits,” Le Borgne continues. “Its capabilities quickly won us over, particularly the excellent quality and the ease of use. We’re an offset print business and the Jet Press fits seamlessly into that environment with minimal changes required to our processes.
“Now we can offer our customers short run jobs, in B2 format, at the same exceptionally high level of quality they’re used to, allowing us to grow our business with existing clients, and to find new ones as well.”
“We’re delighted RGI chose Fujifilm and the Jet Press 750S High Speed model when making its first major digital press investment,” says Taro Aoki, Head of Digital Press Solutions, Fujifilm Europe. “The Jet Press is designed to deliver the high quality, short run commercial print the market is increasingly demanding and the Jet Press High Speed model can accelerate the transition from analogue to digital. This investment puts them in the best possible place to face the future with confidence.”
