Press release from the issuing company

Rolling Meadows, IL, January 24, 2006 -- Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced that Essence Printing, based in South San Francisco, recently installed a Komori six-color Lithrone 28 (NL628) with coater. This is the second Komori press at Essence Printing, a commercial printer serving a variety of industries including real estate, mortgage lending, biotech and retail. The NL628 is making it possible for Essence to effectively respond to the fast turnaround and high quality print demands of the deadline-intensive industries it serves. Answering the company’s requirements for low cost, short turnaround and high quality printing, the NL628 has cut Essence’s production time by one-third. Key drivers in the selection of the press were its ease of use, fast makeready and high quality performance. The NL628’s ability to run at high speeds and still lay down a smooth, clean solid is critical to delivering the excellent color reproduction important to the high-end real estate market Essence serves. The NL628 is also user friendly, making it simple for operators of all skills to master the press. Additionally, the fast makeready and labor-saving automation of the NL628 is helping Essence reduce costs and meet the time to market demands of its customers. “Today’s print market requires a very narrow window for turnaround,” said Terry Crescenti, general manager for Essence Printing. “It has always been time, price and quality when it comes to being competitive in the print industry. The advent of electronics has taken time out of that equation. Our real estate and mortgage customers need to present a high-end image in an extremely competitive, volatile market. The installation of the Komori NL628 has made it possible for us to turn work around very fast, meeting our goal to do 24 hours of work in 12 hours. It also delivers the outstanding color quality our customers are looking for. We are very pleased with the performance of our second Komori press.” “Essence Printing has a unique market niche and the NL628 offers the perfect support,” said Paul Peyrebrune, vice president of sales for Komori’s Western Region. “With time to market being so critical in today’s business world, the NL628 gives Essence even more of a competitive edge. It is the perfect choice for meeting the short-run, quick-turnaround needs of our clients.”
