Does OWN-X plan to distribute its Memjet-based Widestar 2000 large-format color printer in the U.S.?

I only recently found this Press Release from OWN-X, a company based in Hungary. The press release talks about OWN-X’s Speedstar 3000, which is a small-format, Memjet-based printer. I do not know, yet, if OWN-X also plans to distribute its soon-to-be-released Widestar 2000 wide-format, Memjet-based printer. I sent an e-mail to Brian Jobmann, two weeks ago, but have not yet heard back from him.
