Muller Martini AmigoPlus perfect binder drives business growth for Peters Bindery

Monday, April 10, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Anderson, Indiana – How do small binderies become bigger ones? The answer is three-fold: with the right growth strategy, the right people, and the right equipment. For Peters Bindery, Inc., the strategy for growth has been to provide top-quality work; insure that the company is highly responsive to its customers; and invest in the best bindery equipment solutions. Recently, Peters Bindery made the decision to invest in a Muller Martini AmigoPlus perfect binder, and the installation is paying dividends right away. “We expect sales to increase significantly this year with the new installation of the AmigoPlus,” says Eric Peters, President of Peters Bindery. “We are now able to develop better quality books, giving us the confidence to advertise to high-end print houses. We have even gained back some old customers. And, now that we can do side gluing, we can bring in new customers.” Peters Bindery is a trade shop that employs only three people and with a limited budget for new equipment, choosing the right technology is imperative. “We replaced a Sulby with the AmigoPlus, we also still own a Muller Martini Prince Binder,” continues Eric Peters. “We preferred to stay with Muller Martini equipment because we felt it did a better job on products.” Another decisive factor in choosing the AmigoPlus was the support that Peters Bindery received from Muller Martini's perfect binding experts. “We spent two days of training with Muller Martini and we were able to get up and running independently without further training needed,” says Mr. Peters. The affordably priced Muller Martini AmigoPlus is engineered for efficient one-person operation, and delivers high quality adhesive binding of softcover books, catalogs, annual reports and a wide range of other products. In addition to being ideal for binding companies that want to expand their sales and profit potential, the AmigoPlus is also a great way to enter the fast growing and lucrative book-on-demand market. The AmigoPlus perfect binding system provides infinitely variable speed performance from 300 to 1,500 cycles per hour. Among the specific advantages of the AmigoPlus are quick set up and changeover, a key to success in the short- and medium-run marketplace. Menu-guided controls simplify make-ready and minimize supervision requirements. The bottom feeding cover feeder with four-line scoring delivers crisp results. Precise glue application and true side gluing ensure exceptional binding durability while heavy-duty nipping provides accurate cover positioning and tight, square backbones. Muller Martini-exclusive backbone preparation tools ensure superior binding strength even when running coated stock and with heavy ink coverage, enabling short-run operators to achieve commercial quality previously possible only on large perfect binders.
