Denville, New Jersey – RedmondBCMS is a versatile company providing a diverse range of services...from business communications and marketing support, to printing, mailing and distribution...a true one-stop shop. Now, RedmondBCMS is also poised to expand its profit potential and its customer base, after installing a Presto saddle stitcher from Muller Martini. “We had been running old McCain equipment,” explains Tara Redmond McEntee, Executive Vice President at RedmondBCMS. “With the Presto, we have increased production and also efficiency along with the variability of our jobs.” Additional bottom-line benefits that the Presto stitcher is bringing to RedmondBCMS include the ability to pursue higher-end projects while simultaneously lowering print finishing costs. “The Presto stitcher gives us the opportunity for better markets and to offer competitive saddle stitching without the use of outside sources,” continues Tara Redmond McEntee.

Presto can handle an extensive variety of different size books, encompassing standard products ranging in size from 12” x 14 3/8” to 3 15/16” x 5 11/16”.

Other benefits of the Presto saddle stitcher include Muller Martini flying stitching heads to assure precise stitching and to reduce wear, as well as a Semko side caliper and missing stitch detector technology to further ensure optimum quality.
