xpedx Now Authorized Reseller of Kodak Products
Eastman Kodak Co. has named xpedx as the company’s primary U.S. national authorized reseller for Kodak’s suite of commercial prepress products. Kodak also notified Pitman Co. that it is terminating Pitman’s right to distribute all Kodak products. This termination will take effect at the end of business on October 5.
“Kodak is expanding its relationship with xpedx because we believe it will support the best interests of our customers,” said Don Whaley, Director, Channel and Key Account Development, Kodak, North America. “Our top priority is to ensure that our customers have steady, seamless access to Kodak’s unmatched product portfolio and xpedx is the best national partner to deliver speed and excellence on a local level.”
Kodak has set up a dedicated customer number (800-929-9209) to handle questions and concerns on product delivery, availability and transition details.
Pitman responded to the announcement by noting that, in recent years, Pitman's product offerings have extended beyond conventional prepress solutions, which continue to become a smaller portion of its current business. The company has diversified its portfolio and invested in key growth areas such as packaging, pressroom products and industrial ink-jet solutions.
