Tuesday, June 20, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

KENNESAW, Ga., June 20, 2006 – Heidelberg today announced that NuPress of Miami, Inc., an all-Heidelberg general commercial print shop located in Miami, recently installed a Dymatrix 105 CS diecutter and an ECO 105 folder gluer in its new diecutting department. NuPress installed the finishing equipment and opened its diecutting department to eliminate outsourcing and expand its client base. With its new department, Nupress can handle the entire printing and finishing cycle for its customers while providing them with the latest information on the status of their jobs at every stage of the process. The new diecutting department produces materials that require precise, intricate cuts, including presentation folders, press kits and boxes for real estate developers, cruise lines, airlines, cosmetic companies and local tourist attractions. Since the installation of the diecutter and folder gluer from Heidelberg, sales have increased by 30 percent. “With our most recent installation of Heidelberg equipment, we were looking to achieve complete autonomy on every job,” said Litsy Pittser, controller at NuPress. “Now that we no longer have to depend on outside vendors, our customer service has improved because we can provide a more accurate estimate of when jobs will be ready. Plus, we can be more competitive with our costs, which has attracted new customers.” Heidelberg's Dymatrix 105 is ideal for companies like NuPress that are expanding their capabilities to include cost-effective, state-of-the-art diecutting and embossing. With a maximum output of 9,000 sph, the high-performance, entry-level machine is equipped with an advanced feeder designed to handle a broad range of materials, including paper, board and corrugated board. Its ergonomically-designed control elements shorten makeready and enhance efficiency. Heidelberg's Dymatrix diecutters are the only platen presses in the industry with an upper moving platen equipped with roller bearings and motorized adjustment of cutting pressure to ensure continuous, problem-free production. The ECO 105 from Heidelberg is an entry-level folder gluer solution that is affordable for most companies in the printing, packaging and finishing businesses. Easy to set up and operate, the machine delivers benefits such as increased productivity and fast makeready due to motorized setup. The unit handles all major carton types and its extended prefolder permits fast production without the risk of damaging large blanks. “Heidelberg's postpress solutions are designed to help companies like Nupress reach new market segments and meet evolving customers needs,” said Ralph Pasquariello, vice president, postpress product management, Heidelberg USA. “We provide automated finishing equipment for all types of businesses, ranging from small entrepreneurial shops to mid-sized commercial operations and highly industrialized providers.” In addition to the Dymatrix 105 and the ECO 105, NuPress also houses Heidelberg press and bindery equipment including two Speedmaster CD 102 presses, a four-color GTO press, three Stahlfolders and three POLAR high-speed cutters. “We have been attracted to the Heidelberg name since the inception of our company when we purchased a Speedmaster press in our first year of business,” said Pittser. “As our shop continues to grow, we expect that our partnership with Heidelberg will remain strong.” NuPress is a mid-sized general commercial printer that has experienced exponential growth since its establishment in 1995. Founded by President Ricky De La Vega and Vice President Orlando Lopez, the privately-owned company specializes in printing high-quality collateral materials for large-scale corporations, small businesses and individuals. The shop runs three eight-hour shifts seven days a week to meet the demands of its domestic and international client base. NuPress houses 60 employees in a 50,000 sq. ft. facility complete with a pressroom, bindery, diecutting department and prepress department.
