Ricoh Donates Pro C900S to Cal Poly
Ricoh’s Production Printing Business Group has donated a Pro C900S digital color production printing system to California Polytechnic State University’s Graphic Communication Department. The announcement was made on the first day of the PRINT 09 trade show in Chicago.
At the press conference, Dr. Harvey Levenson, head of Cal Poly’s Graphic Communication Department, noted that Ricoh’s short-run color technology is part of what students are already learning at the San Luis Obispo, Calif.-based school.
“Ricoh’s leading technology offerings will provide our students and industry professionals with experiential learning that will allow them to gain practical knowledge of the industry’s latest innovations,” he said.
With this donation, which includes training and ongoing service by Ricoh’s IKON division, Ricoh will become an active member of Cal Poly’s “Partners in Education Program.” The Pro C900S will become a standard part of the school’s academic curriculum, and it will be used within Cal Poly’s student-run printing and publishing company, University Graphic Systems. This alliance further supports Ricoh’s commitment to the graphic arts and to continue as a major player in the production printing space.
