Press release from the issuing company

Stamford, CT, September 7, 2006 - Pitney Bowes Inc. today announced that Renkim Information Technology Solutions has acquired a fully integrated Pitney Bowes mail processing system to reduce operating costs and optimize its mailstream. Renkim, based in Southgate, MI, provides high-volume personalized customer communications and mission-critical documents to Fortune 500 and privately held companies. “Our business strategy is to deploy an integrated, end-to-end mail processing solution, from data quality and integrity, to printing, inserting and sortation,” said Robert Swearingen, President and CEO of Renkim. “Pitney Bowes has been an excellent choice as our end-to-end solution provider" Renkim’s additions to its existing mail processing system include a Pitney Bowes Olympus II Multi Tier Sorter, two Pitney Bowes FPS (Flexible Productivity Series) high-integrity inserting systems, and CODE-1 Plus, VeriMove and MailStream Plus data quality and presort software from Group 1 Software, a Pitney Bowes company. "With the integration of the Olympus II sorter with the other Pitney Bowes solutions, we improve our internal and external costs, improve our ability to meet USPS mailing cutoff points, and expedite accurate delivery of mission critical communications for our clients," Swearingen said. “At the Pitney Bowes site in Danbury, we were able to see our sorter during the design, build and testing phases. At our own site, we have a single point of contact from Pitney Bowes for maintenance which maximizes our uptime.” In addition to reduced operating costs and greater productivity, the Pitney Bowes end-to-end solution – including address quality software and FPS high-integrity insertion systems – gives Renkim higher levels of security and control in processing clients’ mail. The two FPS insertion systems replace three legacy Bowe Bell + Howell inserters. The Olympus II purchased by Renkim is the first sorter system manufactured by Pitney Bowes at its Document Messaging Technologies center in Danbury, CT. "With the integration of most of our mail processing capabilities at one site, we develop and deliver custom solutions more quickly and efficiently than ever before,” said Leslie Abi-Karam, President, Pitney Bowes Document Messaging Technologies. “Clients benefit from collaborating with our engineering, manufacturing and customer service teams in Danbury while we custom-build their solutions. By manufacturing at one location, we can deliver fully integrated, ‘plug and play’ systems to our customers.” Pitney Bowes manufactures mail sorters using Six Sigma methodologies and provides 24/7 support by a highly skilled group of customer service professionals. Pitney Bowes has been providing large-scale sorting solutions to customers for over 17 years, and is committed to being the leader in innovative, flexible and efficient sorting solutions.
