Mimaki USA, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, held a grand reopening event in December to celebrate the expansion and remodelling of its New Jersey Technology Center, located in the greater New York metropolitan area. Mimaki’s New Jersey Technology Center is now expanded to have more than 14,000 sq. ft. of space. Authorised dealers and VIP guests were invited for a day of tours and demonstrations.
According to Mike Trotter, northeast regional manager at Mimaki USA, the augmenting of space without relocating, makes it an ideal opportunity to showcase a reconfigured conference and demonstration centre in a location already familiar to the company’s existing dealers and customers. “Our main offices have been refreshed and our showroom floor has been expanded so visitors can now experience innovative workflows that create a wide variety of imaginative display graphics as well as finished products.”
Featuring new amenities in addition to an expanded office, conference and demonstration area; the 14,500 sq. ft. facility will also include a new Mimaki Café Bar, complete with a comfortable lounge area for visiting guests. The entire facility showcases furnishings and graphics that have been created using Mimaki products. Additionally, a replica Mimaki retail store displays a wide range of finished products that can be produced using Mimaki technology located on-site. The centre includes all lines of Mimaki products that cater to sign graphics, textile and apparel, industrial products, and 3D markets.
Meanwhile, this expansion project reflects the company’s continued commitment to its dealers and customers, joining a list of many new openings or expansions in recent years, while the technology giant marks the celebration of 20 years of serving customers in North America. In 2016, Mimaki USA opened a new office in Toronto (Canada); in 2017 it relocated and expanded its Boston office; in 2018 it relocated and expanded its Chicago office to Milwaukee; and in early 2019 the Los Angeles Technology Centre was relocated and expanded.
