SAKURAI APPOINTS SHREVE PRESS & GRAPHIC ASSOCIATES DEALERS FOR OFFSET PRESSES
Sakurai has announced the expansion of its Dealer Network with the addition of two new established dealers for its full line-up of offset presses. The announcement was made today by David Rose, General Manager, Sakurai USA, Inc.
Shreve Press Service and Sales, a successful new and used equipment dealer based in Maitland, Florida will be covering the state for Sakurai. This growing company, founded 40 years ago by Keith Shreve, now semi-retired, but still involved, was acquired last year by Jerry Long as part of an expansion plan and merged with FME, a new and used equipment, parts and supplies company also based in Maitland. "Monthly sales have doubled in the past six months and we anticipate that Sakurai will be a big part of our future success," said Jerry Long, President.
Graphic Associates, Inc., founded in 1968, is a Cleveland, Ohio based distributor of new, used, reconditioned, and rebuilt printing equipment. The company also provides supplies, parts, and the technical services needed to maintain the equipment and will be representing Sakurai offset presses on Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, Kentucky and West Virginia. "We're very excited to represent Sakurai. Since Sakurai is an established brand, there's already a solid customer base for their offset presses in our locations and we can't wait to make it grow with their new LED-UV Drying System," said Rick Patterson, President Graphic Associates, Inc.
