Tensor Installs T-1400 Units To Existing Pressline At Pioneer Press
Press release from the issuing company
WOODRIDGE, IL (October 21, 2005) – Tensor Group, Inc. has added equipment to an existing Goss pressline at Pioneer Press, based in Northfield, Illinois.
Pioneer Press serves the suburbs of Chicago with 53 community newspapers. Pioneer Press is a subsidiary of Hollinger International, Inc., a newspaper publisher whose assets include the Chicago Sun-Times, a large number of community newspapers in the Chicagoland area, a portfolio of news media investments and a variety of other assets.
Recently, Pioneer Press purchased sixteen units in the form of four Tensor T-1400 4-high towers for two separate operations. Two of the towers were added to Goss Suburban presslines and the other two towers were added to Goss Community presslines. Pioneer Press prints a number of daily newspapers and supplements; which demand an increasing amount of 4-color along with very high-quality standards.
This increase for 4-color advertising sparked the need for Pioneer Press to expand their operations. They chose Tensor Group, Inc. as their equipment supplier for numerous reasons, including the high quality output of the Tensor press as well as the benefit of receiving local support from Tensor during their time-sensitive installation process. Pioneer quickly realized they made the right choice in choosing Tensor during the first installation; the commissioning of the 4-highs went so smoothly that they immediately placed an order for additional Tensor equipment.
The commissioning of the remaining T-1400 units, equipped with Tensor remote register motorization, will be completed this month.
