First sale of new Barberan HS Series to Linney

Fujifilm and Barberán have confirmed the first global sale of the HS Series single-pass inkjet solution for the sign and display market, to Linney, with the deal agreed on the Barberán stand at drupa on 30th May.

Linney, founded in 1851, is a full-service creative marketing agency, with more than 1,200 staff, offering cusotmers a full spectrum of digital services, alongside print production.

Charles Linney, Director, said, “Its so important for the business to keep on top of the changing technologies available in the industry, and something we watch carefully, The HS series really does feel like a huge step forward and will help us cater for the ever increasing speed to market that our clients need. Back in 2009, we were one of the very first adopters of the Inca Onset range – and our relationship with Fujifilm which began back then has been very important to us ever since. We strongly feel that the time for single-pass inkjet is here; we wanted something with reliability, speed, quality and excellent up-time in equal measure. On all of these measures, the HS Series has hugely impressed us. It’s 5-10 times faster than the previous technology, the quality is fantastic, and our operators have been mightily impressed. We’re excited to be investing in this press, and we’re delighted that it will be Fujifilm and Barberan partnering with us as we do that. Both of them have been fantastic to work with.”

Jesús Barberán, Owner, Barberán, adds, “We’re excited to be working with Fujifilm on the HS Series project and we’re delighted to welcome our first customer for this ground-breaking platform. Linney, like Barberán, is a family business. And like us, over the decades, they’ve grown by investing in the future and by leading the way in adopting new technologies. We look forward to a long successful future working together.”
