Press release from the issuing company

KENNESAW, Ga. – May 7, 2008 –For a family-owned company that is more than 112 years old and in its fourth generation, Snyder Printer is progressive in its approach to printing, customer service and corporate responsibility. The company chose a new Heidelberg Stitchmaster ST 350 saddlestitcher to add to its all-Heidelberg bindery and pressroom, and the new stitcher has produced flawless results for Snyder Printer since its installation in January.

“The ease of makeready, increased productivity and automation that it now brings to our bindery is remarkable,” company President Dona Snyder-Reardon said. “We chose to install our first Heidelberg press about eight years ago, and have been adding to our collection ever since, replacing any inefficient equipment with Heidelberg equipment. We feel it absolutely necessary to purchase the best equipment backed by a solid company and service organization which is why we chose to partner with Heidelberg – it was the best investment we ever made.”

Snyder Printer runs three Heidelberg sheetfed presses, including 2-color and 5-color Speedmaster SM 102 presses, and a newly-added 6-color Speedmaster CD 102 with coater. The bindery includes a Heidelberg Stahlfolder TD 78, a POLAR 137 cutter and a Baumfolder series 726B folder. “The Stitchmaster ST 350 complements the presses and bindery equipment so well,” Reardon said. “The quality of the high-end work that we produce with our Heidelberg equipment amazes me, which is why I say that once you go Heidelberg, you never go back.”

Snyder Printer has been OSHA SHARP certified for more than ten years, is proudly Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, and practices environmentally-friendly plans such as an internal recycling program and  a no paper products policy, and a 100 percent renewable electricity alternative is in the works. Reardon and her brother and business partner, Dean Snyder, also point out the environmental advantages of using Heidelberg equipment, such as eliminating waste and reducing make-ready time, which keep the riverside shop as efficient as possible. The Troy, N.Y. shop employs 24 and produces high-end brochures, annual reports, pocket folders and marketing materials for a wide array of customers.
