Scitex Vision Forms Strategic Partnership with Beiren

Manufacturing lines in Beijing for Grandjet Classic are now operational

Scitex Vision has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Beiren
Group Corporation, the large printing-machinery manufacturer in China. The
agreement initially covers the manufacturing and assembly at Beiren of Scitex
Vision?s Grandjet Classic printer.

?We operate in a highly competitive market. In order to remain competitive and
to retain our market-leading position we must constantly look to strengthen our
product and service offering as well as developing our core technology and
skills. Partnerships such as this are key to bringing new strengths to the
company and achieving these aims,? says Dov Ofer, Scitex Vision president and

“The alliance with Beiren demonstrates Scitex Vision’s commitment to the Chinese
market in general and the super-wide format market in particular,? Ofer
continues. ?The experience and capabilities of Beiren coupled with Scitex
Vision’s digital technology know-how will create exciting new possibilities for
our companies and customers alike.?

Beiren worked with Scitex Vision to build manufacturing lines in Beijing for the
GrandJet Classic; those lines are now operational. As part of the agreement,
Beiren Group and Scitex Vision will participate in co-marketing activities,
especially those intended to promote Scitex Vision?s products in China. The
companies will be exhibiting their respective products at the 2005 China Print
Trade show in Beijing. The partnership ?also paves the way for potential joint
product development and other manufacturing activities that combine analog and
digital technologies to create new opportunities for both companies? customers,?
Scitex Vision reports.
