In a global first Fujifilm and Barberan announce the first sale of new HS Series single-pass inkjet platform, with deal agreed on the Barberán stand at drupa 2024. Linney, a full-service UK-based marketing agency, has become the first company in the world to invest in the new, ultra-high productivity, single-pass HS Series – developed in partnership by Fujifilm and Barberán.  



Linney, founded in 1851, is a full-service creative marketing agency, with more than 1,200 staff, offering clients a full spectrum of digital services, alongside print production. Charles Linney, a company director, and part of the sixth generation of the Linney Family working in the business, sees the investment as hugely significant:

“Its so important for the business to keep on top of the changing technologies available in the industry, and something we watch carefully, The HS series really does feel like a huge step forward and will help us cater for the ever increasing speed to market that our clients need”

Mr Linney continues: “Back in 2009 we were one of the very first adopters of the Inca Onset range – and our relationship with Fujifilm which began back then has been very important to us ever since.

“We strongly feel that the time for single-pass inkjet is here; we wanted something with reliability, speed, quality and excellent up-time in equal measure.

“On all of these measures, the HS Series has hugely impressed us. It’s 5-10 times faster than the previous technology, the quality is fantastic, and our operators have been mightily impressed.

“We’re excited to be investing in this press, and we’re delighted that it will be Fujifilm and Barberan partnering with us as we do that. Both of them have been fantastic to work with.”

David Burton, CCO, Fujifilm Wide Format Inkjet Systems says: “As they approach their 175th anniversary, we’re delighted that Linney, a partner of ours in wide format print for more than a decade, has chosen to invest in the HS Series. We look forward to an even closer partnership in the coming years, as we work with them as they develop the business further.”

Jesús Barberán, Owner, Barberán adds: “We’re hugely excited to be working with Fujifilm on the HS Series project and we’re delighted to welcome our first customer for this ground-breaking platform. Linney, like Barberán, is a family business. And like us, over the decades, they’ve grown by investing in the future and by leading the way in adopting new technologies. We look forward to a long successful future working together.”
