Print Runner Installs Five-color Komori Lithrone S40 Press

Monday, January 12, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Rolling Meadows, IL, January 7, 2009 – Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced Print Runner, Inc. has installed a five-color, Komori Lithrone S40 press (LS540) with coating capabilities at its 25,000 square foot commercial printing facility in Chatsworth, California. The company produces a wide variety of full-color applications that include business cards, postcards, brochures, and catalogs for small and medium sized businesses. Print Runner's expansion is the result of a well developed niche-online print-on-demand. The company provides customers the ability to order and design highly customized materials online with instant pricing and high quality, remarkably fast delivery. This streamlined process has nearly quadrupled Print Runner's business in the last two years. Chosen to fulfill the qualitative and quantitative needs of the growing business, the LS540 is greatly reducing Print Runner's makeready time while upholding the company's dedication to enhanced printing capability and speed to market.
 "We had a 28-inch Komori press that was the backbone of our operations," said Mike Zaya, CEO of Print Runner. "With the explosive growth of our business, we quickly realized we needed more capacity. The Komori LS540 was the perfect addition, offering both print quality and amazing speed as well as the ability to maintain color stability during continuous printing.
A key factor in Print Runner's purchasing decision was the advanced automation of the LS540. "Komori understands the importance of quick makeready," commented Seth Staszower, president of Print Runner. "The LS540 is made for our market. We were experiencing an eleven minute makeready downtime with our old press, and the month after the installation of our new LS540, we were down to five minutes of makeready." This enhanced productivity is partially due to the press' automatic plate changing system and automatic ink film adjustment system.
"Print Runner is committed to providing their customers with a host of professional printing jobs and customizable options with competitive service," said Paul Peyrebrune, vice president of sales for Komori's Western Region. "We've developed the LS540 for companies like Print Runner-companies that cater to capability and speed."
