Fujifilm Expands Chicago-Area Technology Center


Hanover Park, IL—With an ongoing commitment to develop new products and solutions, and the ability to showcase and demonstrate these technologies, Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems, is undergoing a significant renovation at its Technology Center in Hanover Park, Illinois.

The construction will more than double the size of the current Technology Center, with the new space encompassing more than 20,000 square feet to display everything from traditional offset printing to the latest technologies in flexography, wide-format and production inkjet solutions. The current Technology Center in Hanover Park will continue to host customer demos and events throughout the renovation process.

The expanded Technology Center will showcase Fujifilm Brillia HD plates and plate-setter solutions, the complete range of J Press sheet-fed and roll-fed inkjet solutions, and Xerox toner-based production presses. Also featured will be entry to mid-range roll-to-roll, flatbed and hybrid wide-format presses, including the Inca Onset series of UV flatbed presses, the Uvistar, the Acuity Advance Select and the Acuity LED. The Graphium UV inkjet web press for labels, packaging and specialty printing, plus the new Clarity flexo print for packaging will also be on display. Fujifilm XMF workflow solutions, such as ColorPath color management software, will also be demonstrated.

“A key success factor in our future growth will be to showcase and demonstrate all of our innovative solutions at a centrally located Technology Center,” said Todd Zimmerman, vice president and general manager, Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems. “The new world-class Technology Center will be an industry destination, and our Chicagoland location is convenient for customers to visit. This substantial renovation reinforces our dedication and commitment to inkjet leadership and innovations in print technology. We look forward to hosting many more events in Hanover Park, including our highly successful Technology Summits.” fujifilmusa.com
