Duplo USA Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary
Duplo USA Corporation kicks off the New Year by
celebrating its 25th Anniversary. Duplo’s success in the United States
is accredited to its extensive line of top-quality, paper handling
equipment, not to mention its loyal dealers and customers.
In 1979, Duplo USA emerged in the United States as an assembly plant
for the spirit duplicator and sorter. Three years later, Duplo moved
south from Gardena, CA to the Orange County area as a sales company
selling the industry’s first vertical collator. This revolutionary
product, with the addition of a new suction feed collator introduced in
1992, moved Duplo into a position of leadership among finishing
equipment in the graphic arts industry. As a result, Duplo quickly
expanded its dealer network and in 1998 opened a second distribution
facility in Suwanee, Georgia to better serve customers in the South and
East Coast and in Latin America.
In order to adapt to the ever-changing market and to satisfy the needs
of a variety of consumers, Duplo has created a full line of printing
and finishing solutions that range from tabletop office equipment and
digital duplicators to vacuum feed floor model collating/bookletmaking
solutions. Duplo’s newest finishing solution, the vacuum feed System
5000, has been well received by commercial and in-plant printers.
Duplo has created innovative products since 1951 dating back to the
first spirit duplicator developed in Japan by Duplo’s founder Mr. Juko
Shima. Since then, generations of Duplo duplicators have evolved and
penetrated the school and church markets. Duplo’s most recent
recognition goes to the DP-330L, DP-430, and DP-63P models, which were
awarded 2003 Editor’s Choice Award from Better Buys for Business.
In response to the thriving print-on-demand market, Duplo delivers a
rewarding range of automated print on demand finishing solutions. The
System 5000, DSF-2000 Document Sheet Feeder, DC-545HC
Slitter/Cutter/Creaser, Intelligent Multi-bin Feeder (IMBF), and Muller
systems all accommodate digitally printed documents. Duplo’s
partnerships with leading digital printer manufacturers such as Hewlett
Packard, Nexpress, IKON, Canon, Océ and, Xerox have further
strengthened their print-on-demand line.
From printing to finishing systems, Duplo is the only manufacturer
dedicated to the production of a complete line of on-demand solutions.
Duplo maintains its commitment to providing the finest off-line,
near-line, and in-line finishing systems, as well as an assortment of

leader in providing innovative collating, bookletmaking, perfect
binding, trimming, folding, cutting, printing, bursting, and creasing
