Kodak is opening a second production line for its Xiamen printing plate manufacturing facility to enhance the company's manufacturing capacity for offset products.
The manufacturing line in the southern Chinese city will produce CTP plates for sale in Asia and support the development of current and new products.
Kodak previously announced expansion of its operations center, comprising customer service and internal operations, in Xiamen. In August 2009, Kodak also relocated its Southeast Asia-based logistics center to Xiamen to support its fast-growing business in the Asian market.
Kodak's plate portfolio includes flexographic, sheet-fed and web offset printing solutions for commercial, newspaper, and packaging printers. Kodak invented thermal plates in 1995 with the introduction of the Kodak Direct Image Thermal Plate product.
