Printronix would like to announce that its Board of Directors has appointed Werner Heid, as new CEO of Printronix, effective March 30th. This appointment comes on the heels of the decision by current CEO, Randy Eisenbach, of his retirement this month.

 

Randy commenting on his retirement "It has been a pleasure leading a great organization like Printronix and working with many of the partners we have around the globe. I truly value our partnerships and all the great accomplishments we have done together these past 7 years. I am looking forward to traveling and spending time with family while watching Printronix' success with Werner at the helm."

 

Werner will serve as only the third CEO in Printronix' 40 year history. Prior to joining Printronix, he held the position as Senior VP at Logitech where he strengthened Logitech's worldwide consumer channel franchise. Prior to Logitech, Werner served as CEO of Iomega where he led a wide-scale corporate turn-around by creating a new line of innovation products to return the company to sustainable profitability.

 

Werner also was President of Proxima where he doubled sales in eighteen months ahead of Proxima merger in 2001 with InFocus and then served as Executive Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing for the combined company. Previously, he held various executive positions at Hewlett Packard, including running HP's European LaserJet & Printing Supplies division as well as introduced HP's 'All-in-One" OfficeJet worldwide.

 

"I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Printronix, a company with a rich heritage of delivering innovative solutions to enterprise customers globally. Through its 40 years of history Printronix's success has in large parts been possible through the strong relationships with our valued partner community. I am looking forward to working together with our channel partners to continue this success and to deliver solutions that enable the accurate movement of goods along our industrial customers' supply chain globally" said Werner.

DASCOM Americas Becomes Majority Stakeholder in Printek

Move will strengthen both brands presence in global business printing markets

Verona, Virginia (July 3, 2014) - DASCOM Americas, a recognized leader in complete business printing solutions and marketer of Tally® and Tally DASCOM serial matrix, specialty, and thermal printers today announced it has acquired controlling interest in Printek. Printek is a Benton Harbor, Michigan based manufacturer specializing in mobile and impact printers. Under terms of the acquisition, Printek will continue to operate as a separate and independent company under the legal entity Printek LLC. The acquisition and resulting strategy will allow both brands to increase their global footprint in new and underserved markets.

 

Ron Acorn, President of DASCOM Americas, said of the acquisition: "Printek has been a trusted name in the business transaction and mobile print market for more than 30 years. Their brand recognition and quality products, most especially in the mobile market, will help us strengthen our presence in this market segment, particularly in geographies outside of North America." He further added, "Printek LLC has a talented group of senior executives with many years of experience in research, development, engineering, and marketing. We expect that by operating the company independently, current Printek customers will see the same level of quality and service they have come to expect from the company."

 

Julie Payovich, who will continue to serve as President of Printek LLC says this new strategic relationship will not only allow Printek to continue to offer its customers the best in current mobile and impact solutions, but will also allow the company to further invest in additional research and development. She said of the new relationship: "This is certainly a winning combination for our customers. We plan to grow our operations base in Benton Harbor and will continue to operate our engineering, production, customer service, sales, marketing, and administration from our current location." She added the move will also allow the company to more rapidly bring pipeline products to market; "We have three new products that will launch soon. This accelerated launch schedule is a direct result of the investment on the part of DASCOM Americas, and the great relationship between our respective teams."

 

Payovich, along with Russ Corace, Executive Vice President of Engineering, and Chris Yeager, Director of Marketing will form the core management team for Printek LLC and will be minority stakeholders in the company. Tom Yeager, founder and former CEO of Printek, Inc., will no longer be involved with the organization.

DASCOM® Americas announces new Cerner® Corporation approved Serial Matrix Printers with DEC® Emulation
January, 2014

 

DASCOM® Americas, a recognized leader in complete business printing solutions and marketer of Tally® and Tally DASCOM® serial matrix, specialty, and thermal printers today announced several new mid-range serial matrix printers with DEC® emulation. The Tally DASCOM® LA2600 narrow, and LA2610 wide carriage models boast a host of features including standard connectivity choices of Parallel, USB, and Ethernet (10/100 BaseT).

 

The printers have also been approved by Cerner® Corporation, an important step in making the printers a good choice in the medical services community.

 

With print speeds up to 680 characters per second and a duty cycle that supports a workload of up to 20,000 pages per month, these printers also fit a very important niche in transaction forms and report printing.

 

Chuck Ward, Product Manager for DASCOM® Americas, says of the new printers; "The LA2600 exemplifies our continued commitment to develop new products that utilize emulations that are hard to find, yet very important in specific vertical market segments. DEC® emulations continue to be an important part of many environments and the LA2600 is a prime example of our willingness to invest in supporting this platform. The LA2600 printers combine this emulation with a variety of features and flexibility, giving users a high quality, new printer to meet their ongoing needs."

 

Ron Acorn, President of DASCOM® Americas, adds; "DASCOM® has a long term commitment to serial matrix and business transaction printing. We continue to add products and innovate because we believe this technology is important and very cost-effective."

 

The printers will be available through select national and regional North American resellers.

End-of-Support for Printronix Line Matrix P5220/5224
April, 2013 – Anaheim, CA

 

Printronix announced End of Sales of the P5000 Line Matrix Printer family in 2005. As these printers have aged, sourcing of parts and spares has become increasingly more difficult.

 

As a result, Printronix is announcing End of Support on all P5220/5224 Line Matrix Printers, including associated options, effective April 26th, 2013.

 

After this date, Printronix will no longer, for these printer models:
• Renew service contracts
• Provide spare parts
• Perform repair services
• Provide Advanced Exchange parts
• Provide replacement software and/or documentation

 

We will, however, continue to provide Genuine Printronix ribbons for the P5220/5224.

The newly announced Printronix P8000 Line Matrix printer family is the ideal replacement for these legacy printers. The P8000 supports most of the same features and functionality as the P5000 series, thereby enabling a smooth and easy transition. In addition, this new product family delivers increased ribbon yield performance, a lower cost of operation, higher reliability, powerful remote management, and is plug and print compatible with existing applications.

 

Printronix will no longer provide Technical Support for P5220/5224 Printers products. ThePrinterPlace will, however, continue supplying consumables and support this base of printers. Some new and refurbished units are still in stock.
