LexJet, a nationwide developer, manufacturer, and distributor of digital-printing equipment, inkjet materials, and software, had its contract extended to be a preferred print shop supplier for MillerCoors distributor print shops through 2017.
The ongoing agreement with Distributors Solutions LLC (DSI), Golden, Colo., runs through March 15, 2017. LexJet's contract was renewed based on its service, support, pricing, product breadth and on-time product delivery to the MillerCoors distribution network.
In July 2007, DSI signed an exclusive agreement with Coors (now MillerCoors) to negotiate and manage preferred supplier programs on behalf of the distributor network in a wide range of categories, including office supplies with Office Depot, a cell phone program with Verizon Wireless and AT&T, an updated fleet program with GM, Chrysler, and Ford, and the print shop supplies program with LexJet, among others.
Since the print shop supply program was initiated in late 2007, more than 400 distributors have actively participated in the LexJet/DSI Preferred Print Shop Supplier program, including some of the largest beverage distributors in the nation, such as Reyes Holdings, Coors Distributing Center, Superior Beverage, United Distributors, Glazers, Manhattan Beer Distributors, Mesa Beverage Company, Cone Distributing, Crest Beverage, Origilio Beverage, RMC Distributing, The Beer Company, and DeCrescente Distributing Company.
According to Ali Comeaux, General Manager, Distributors Solutions LLC, LexJet was chosen as a preferred vendor, "based on LexJet's competitive pricing, its record of outstanding customer service, and its enthusiasm for the program."
LexJet's custom program includes free and unlimited product and technical support, a flexible printer-financing program for aqueous, solvent, latex, and UV-curable wide format printers; free educational resources, which include the bi-monthly eNewsletter, POS Express; and a Web portal that allows program participants to view their orders and product history, track shipments, and access technical data sheets, product specifications, ICC profiles, application education and information, and more.
"DSI has been a great partner, and we are honored that they continue to see the value LexJet brings to MillerCoors distributors through the five-year extension of our contract," says Jason Metnick, LexJet vice president. "We will continue to bring value to the network and, most importantly, find new and innovative ways for our distributor customers to drive more sales at the point of sale."
LexJet's state-of-the-art distribution and tracking system allows timely delivery - including same-day and one-day delivery - through its nationwide distribution network. LexJet account specialists have access to real-time stock levels at all locations, and products can be tracked by participants 24/7 at lexjet.com.
"Our relationship with LexJet has been extremely beneficial and worthwhile. LexJet has lowered our costs and sped up product delivery times, while providing a wider selection of high-quality products, which is everything I'm looking for in a supplier," says Mike Duka, graphic designer for United Distributors, Atlanta. "Whenever we have any questions or concerns LexJet is always there for us, whether it's product information or troubleshooting any issues we may have in production."
