JHF, the respected China based manufacturer of wide-format production devices for textile and display, GrandRIP+ and TextilePro will be recommended for sale throughout JHF’s sales channels worldwide, helping users access the full potential of their 3.2m and 5m roll-to-roll engines and latest launches in textile production printing.
The relationship between the French software powerhouse and JHF has evolved over the last year as part of Caldera’s commitment to strategic partnerships with best-in-class fellow manufacturers. JHF has been digital inkjet printers since 1999, with domestic sales rising substantially in the last few years. Proactive in developing new print technology and providing regular updates to its platforms, JHF demonstrates considerable commitment to research and development, to quality assurance and to achieving the standards demanded by printers on the world stage.
GrandRIP+ will be recommended with JHF’s strongest line to date, the R7000Pro and R3700Pro, its UV-curable wide-format printers in 3.2m and 5m sizes respectively. As with all JHF products, these machines are within the scope of the company’s CE Certification and ISO 9001 international quality standard – as are new textile market entrants, the JHF T3000 soft signage printer and P30 industrial textile engine. Both will be made available with with Caldera’s TextilePro software from now on.
Caldera sees JHF as a natural partner, being one of the forces in the China market that have become increasingly concerned with quality over cost as a major driver. “In China, we see the emphasis on price losing ground with a more sophisticated client base which wants to compete globally,” comments Yan Changning, Vice President, JHF. “JHF has led the way in helping Chinese companies enter international markets by adopting recognized standards for color and production.
“We are driven by our desire to become one of the best printer manufacturers in the world,” Yan continues. “To do this, we listen to our customers and match our technology to their needs, both with new machinery and with regular updates. Partnering with an outstanding software manufacturer like Caldera gives them the tools they need to hit international quality targets.”
Valery de March, Caldera’s OEM Director, recognizes the efforts made by JHF to create a world-class product. “JHF perfectly knows the added value of a solution such as Caldera and the interest it generates when they address more demanding international customers. Globally, we are very happy to be collaborating with JHF. As a business, their team brings enthusiasm to the table and their growth over the past couple of years has been phenomenal. We look forward to collaborating to take that even further – for Caldera, for JHF, and for our users around the world.”
