Agfa Demonstrates Excellence in Inkjet with Double Victory at EDP Awards

Mortsel, 29 May 2024 – Agfa, a global leader in inkjet printing solutions, proudly received two prestigious European Digital Press Association (EDP) Awards for two of its recently introduced inkjet innovations.

Each year, a panel of independent experts of the European Digital Press Association (EDP) reviews printing products that are new to the European market, evaluating them in terms of productivity, quality, usability, cost, and environmental impact – granting awards to the most groundbreaking ones. For the twelfth time, Agfa was honored for its innovative power when it was presented with two awards during the official award ceremony at drupa in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“We are proud to have our inkjet printing solutions rewarded once again with this mark of quality and innovation”, said Arnaud Calleja, Vice-President Digital Printing Solutions at Agfa. “These prestigious awards are a testament to our position as a leader in inkjet technology. With our portfolio of powerful printing beasts, we enable print service providers to grow their businesses by achieving remarkable print results and increasing both productivity and printing efficiency – regardless of their markets or applications.
