Monday, January 16, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Niles, Ill., January 16, 2006 – The Garvey Group (TGG), a network of Midwest-based commercial printing companies that also offer creative, fulfillment, distribution and warehouse services, has just completed the installation of a KBA Rapida 142 large format press at its headquarters plant in Niles, Ill. The new press is TGG’s third KBA press and gives TGG even greater depth in the printing of large format point-of-purchase, point-of-sale signage for retail stores and large-scale packaging materials. TGG’s new 56-inch press complements the company’s 64-inch press, also in place at the Niles facility. Together, the new KBAs give TGG large format printing capacity that is unparalleled in the Chicago area. The 56-inch, six-color sheet fed Rapida 142 is equipped with a Tower Coater and KBA’s Densitronic S-2000 density and color measurement system. The 142 can run at speeds up to 14,000 impressions per hour on sheets up to 40-inches by 56-inches. “With the installation of our third KBA press we have now completed the majority of an ambitious printing press modernization project,” said Joe Kulis, TGG chief operating officer. “By March 2006 we will have two additional KBA presses on-line. Taken together, these five presses give TGG a combination of large format and commercial printing capabilities that is nearly unmatched in the Midwest.” “Our philosophy is to bring to market the most unique and sophisticated products technology has to offer,” continued Kulis, “We believe that our enhanced large format printing capability gives our clients the speed, efficiency and flexibility they need to produce graphic communications materials that help them attract and keep customers.” “We’ve chosen to work closely with KBA because of the quality of their presses, and also because we’re confident KBA will stand behind us every step of the way as we work to serve our market place,” added Ed Garvey, president of The Garvey Group.
