Chase Graphics Installs Third Komori Press

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Rolling Meadows, IL -- Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced Chase Graphics has installed a fully automated four-color Komori Spica 29 press (Spica 429) at its state-of-the-art facility in Putnam, Connecticut. This is the company's third Komori press. Chase Graphics, established in 1929, serves local governments, education, and commercial industries. The company recognized a rapidly growing trend among its customers-the need for faster turnaround without losing the Chase Graphics standard for high-quality color applications. The Spica 429 was chosen to enhance Chase Graphic's color capabilities, diminish makeready time, and speed time to market.

"At Chase Graphics it goes without saying that quality is number one," said Jim St. Jean, president of Chase Graphics. "But we also wanted to offer customers more competitive pricing and reduced turnaround time."  St. Jean notes that the Spica is more operator friendly than competitive presses. This is partially due to the Spica 429's full CIP4 data compatibility, allowing implementation of advanced digital workflow for the prepress, press, and postpress operations.

Most notably, the highly advanced automation of the Spica 429 has reduced the company's turnaround time by half. "We're currently doing twice the work we did with our two-color presses," added St. Jean.

 "Chase Graphics is a company committed to progress. Its team operates with a focus on exceeding the printing industry's status quo for speed and color," said Ken Sabol, vice president of sales for Komori's Eastern Region. "We're pleased to provide Chase Graphics with the equipment and the technology needed to thrive in its marketplace."
