He added, "The trend towards digital production makes this a very large and attractive market to enter."
Go2DigitalPress will provide dealers and brokers a means to buy and sell equipment, as well as an easy way to find much needed parts for the major manufacturers. Many times dealers are in search for parts to help them fix a used press and can't find what they need.
