Vietnam Printing Installs New RYOBI 3304HA Four-Color Offset Press
Wednesday, May 28, 2003
May 28, 2003 -- Vietnam Printing was started as a one man shop by Henry Nguyen in 1987 in a 900 square foot building with a used A.B.Dick 360 that Henry purchased for $900.00 in cash. Henry migrated from Vietnam where his family had a business background. Henry learned to do business a different way with the help of the San Jose Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber showed him ways to invest in his company and Henry has been growing his business successfully ever since. After just 5 years in business Henry received an award from the San Jose Mercury News for being the best small printer in the area. Today, Vietnam Printing employs a staff of six. The production area includes 3 duplicators, an AB Dick 9985 (OEM RYOBI 3302H), and Henry’s latest purchase, a brand new RYOBI 3304HA four color offset press with automation that he recently purchased from RY-Cal, Inc. of Alameda, CA. Henry says “The RYOBI 3304HA is the perfect press to upgrade our capability to produce four-color work. It adds to our ability to service our customers with quality, affordable, four-colors in one pass. The automatic plate loading and many other automatic features will allow us to produce much more work in a shorter turnaround time. Plus the RYOBI PCS-F console will allow us to remotely preset and adjust the color. In addition, by my calculations, we will have a very fast return on investment”. Henry also says “We chose the RYOBI 3304HA from RY-Cal based upon their experience and the excellent reputation of RYOBI in the local area. RY-Cal was very professional in explaining to us the requirements for the installation of the press and in assisting us in a very successful start up of the press. Their ‘SmartStart’ program assured us that we would be up and producing quality work in days, not weeks.” The RYOBI 3304HA is a portrait format four-color press developed from the highly successful RYOBI 3302 true two-color press. It features a full range of automation to speed makereadies and come up to color quickly and easily. The 3304HA can easily handle both metal and polyester-based plate material. In addition, RYOBI Ink Volume Setter software is available to automatically calculate ink fountain zone data from CIP3/CIP4 digital prepress workflows. RY-Cal, Inc. is the exclusive dealer for RYOBI Graphic Systems in Northern California. Their office is located at 1350 South Loop Road, Suite 106, Alameda, CA 94502. 510-748-9400.
