ASL Group, one of Canon’s largest and fastest growing partners in the UK, has helped its customer, Spectrum Graphics,strengthen its offering through the purchase of a Canon imagePRESS C9010VP. The new device will allow Spectrum Graphics to produce exceptional quality prints, whilst helping it become more efficient and cost-effective.
ASL Group is a supplier to the production print market for both Graphic Arts, corporate and public sector print rooms offering print, IT and communication infrastructure to over 7,000 customers across nine UK sites. Having worked with Canon for the last five years, ASL Group is now one of its Silver Partners – helping the business to offer a high level of expertise and achieve continuous year-on-year growth.
Spectrum Graphics, a family run design and printing service based in Erith, Kent, was established in 1998 and offers a wide variety of print products in almost every print sector. It approached ASL Group in early 2020 looking to purchase a new device that would allow it to broaden its product offering and strengthen its quality of output. The business had worked with multiple print providers in recent years; however, it was experiencing difficulties with its existing product range and the service it was receiving from suppliers.
ASL Group worked with Spectrum Graphics to better understand its requirements, existing challenges, and future goals. Offering a consultative approach is a key part of ASL Group’s offering, and after exploring products from various manufacturers it was clear – for both businesses – that the Canon imagePRESS C9010VP was the perfect fit.
Spectrum Graphics purchased the Canon imagePRESS C9010VP, which boasts impressive colour, performance, and consistency. The device is capable of printing on heavier stocks as standard (up to 400gsm), as well as on a range of textured and creative media. Its functionality includes MULTI D.A.T. for ultimate image quality, and a Dual Fixing unit for full productivity on different media types. The purchase will help Spectrum Graphics grow into new markets, as it can now offer its customers a wider range of outstanding quality products with an extremely high level of consistency. Thanks to improved efficiencies, the device will also support Spectrum Graphics in making long term financial savings.
David Norris, Partner, Spectrum Graphics, commented: “The service we’ve received from Canon and ASL Group has been outstanding, with any issues or questions being resolved quickly and professionally. We’ve also been incredibly impressed with the print quality of the imagePRESS C9010VP, and we can now offer our customers quick and reliable turnaround times and the highest quality output.”
Will Doherty, Commercial & Industrial Printing Systems Director, ASL Group, commented: “We’re delighted we’ve been able to support Spectrum Graphics on its journey, helping the business identify a Canon product that uniquely fits its business needs. We pride ourselves on our consultative approach, and hope that the new device will open up exciting opportunities in the future.”
James Pittick, Director of B2B Indirect Sales Channels, Canon UK & Ireland, commented: “We’ve worked with ASL Group for five years, and are pleased we’ve been able to support them in welcoming Spectrum Graphics to our customer base. We’re looking forward to continuing our work with this partner, helping offer innovative solutions and products to both new and existing customers.”
