With a highly successful, worldwide tradeshow now complete, manroland's North American headquarters will host a local event to mark the company's rebranding effort.  A rededication celebration is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Monday, June 30 at manroland's offices, located at 800 East Oak Hill Drive.

Expected to attend is Westmont Mayor William Rahn, who will be joined by Kirk W. Dillard, Illinois State Senator of the 24th District, and Patricia R. Bellock, Illinois State Representative for the 47th District.  Each will make brief statements, as will manroland CEO, Vince Lapinski.  After the company's new logo is unveiled, a brief tour of the facility will follow.
