ROCHESTER, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Kodak (News - Alert) today announced that it has reached a significant milestone: 1,000
customers have adopted KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates that remove the
plate processing step completely without sacrificing the quality or
productivity of traditional mainstream processed plates. Printing
companies around the world have embraced the technology
enthusiastically, leading to a rapid growth in the number of SONORA
Plate customers in 2014.
Kodak's 1,000th customer for SONORA Process Free Plates is Reynolds
and Reynolds, an Ohio-based leading printer of forms for automobile
dealerships. Reynolds and Reynolds also provides software and services
that help dealerships manage business operations.

Presdent, Graphics, Entertainment & Commercial Film (GECF). "This 1,000th
customer milestone is further evidence that Kodak's recent worldwide
manufacturing investments are well timed and vital to ensuring our
