"In 2019, Landa Digital Printing installed its first Nanographic Printing presses at customer sites around the world and received very positive reinforcement that our products are about to change the printing industry. In 2020, despite the global coronavirus pandemic, we expect to see additional installations worldwide, as demand for our products continues to be robust. We firmly believe that Arik is the right person to lead the company to global success," added Levy.
