Design Printing of Los Angeles Installs First Komori Press

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Rolling Meadows, IL, July 25, 2006 -- Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced that Design Printing, a commercial printer catering to non-profits, event coordinators and creative agencies, has recently installed a Komori five-color Lithrone 28 (NL528) with coater. This is the first Komori press for Design Printing, which began its business with only one press and one employee in 1984. Founded by two brothers, Paul and Bijan Bina, Design Printing has been serving greater Los Angeles since its inception and has experienced tremendous growth in the past two years. An award-winning printer that just captured the Printing Industry Association of Southern California (PIASC) Printing Excellence Award in five major categories, Design Printing chose the NL528 because it delivers the quick turnaround, quality and versatility the company's innovative environment requires. Key drivers were the competitive pricing, ability to handle paper stock up to 32 point and advanced workflow capabilities. “We do a lot of custom jobs that include heavier card stock and Komori was the only press that could deliver on all of our requirements,” said Design Printing's co-founder, Paul Bina. “We are very impressed with the advanced automation the press provides. It offers a much quicker make-ready which allows our customers to see proofs right away, saving significant time and helping us turn jobs around much faster. This press will allow us to expand our capabilities in our new 20,000 square-foot facility in a number of ways, which is highly important to our growing business.” Design Printing has a client list that looks like a “Who's Who of Los Angeles Charities” as well as a large following of design and ad agencies and an array of impressive business-to-business clients. The NL528 delivers the versatility Design Printing needs with its ability to handle thin and thick paper stock; the addition of an inline coating system that permits higher value-added printing; and advanced automation capabilities that make it possible for the company to offer low-cost, efficient, high-quality color printing. “Design Printing has been able to stay competitive in the printing marketplace by offering an attractive mix of pricing, quality and service that is very appealing to the sectors it serves,” said Paul Peyrebrune, vice president of sales for Komori's Western Region. “Komori presses provide a host of benefits to printers that translate into the ability to better serve clients in a number of ways. We are pleased to begin this mutually beneficial partnership with Design Printing.”
