Rochester, NY-based Eastman Kodak Co. has named xpedx as the company’s primary U.S. national authorized reseller for Kodak’s suite of commercial prepress products.

“Kodak is expanding its relationship with xpedx because we believe it will support the best interests of our customers,” says Don Whaley, director, channel and key account development, Kodak, North America. “Our top priority is to ensure that our customers have steady, seamless access to Kodak’s unmatched product portfolio and xpedx is the best national partner to deliver speed and excellence on a local level.”

Separately, Kodak has notified Pitman Co. that it is terminating Pitman’s right to distribute all Kodak products. This termination will take effect at the end of business on October 5, 2010.

“We have already begun working with our customers to ensure a smooth transition to an alternative source of supply,” adds Vic Stalam, director, commercial sales, Kodak, North America. “Meanwhile, we have set up a dedicated customer number—1-800-929-9209—to handle questions and concerns on product delivery, availability and transition details.”

Kodak products are backed by Kodak Service and Support, which is made up of more than 3,000 professionals in 120 countries.<
