Friday, December 11, 2009
Press release from the issuing company
Tolerans AB of Stockholm in Sweden has joined the PrintCity Alliance for 2010, expanding its opportunities for knowledge sharing and undertaking joint projects in all aspects of web offset printing & finishing.
Tolerans AB is the world leader in advanced in-line stitching systems for newspaper and commercial print. In business since 1947 the Swedish company has installed stitching systems in more than 70 countries.
In-line stitching is a growing trend in the newspaper publishing and commercial print industry, in large part because stitching supports the increasingly popular compact format for newspapers. It makes them easy to navigate, extends lifetime, empowers portability and secures recycling. Stitching provides better packaging of supplements and increases value for readers and advertisers. Stitching has already become the norm in many places, and experts believe this paradigm shift is becoming the industry standard.
Jan Melin, CEO of Tolerans indicated his company reasons for joining the PrintCity Alliance as, "Being a rather small company on a global market, cooperating with other partners in the industry is essential. We believe by sharing knowledge and networking together we can grow the business more effectively."
As a member of the PrintCity Activity Group 'Publishing, Commercial & Web', Tolerans will be taking part in projects, events, exhibitions & publications under the 'Connection of Competence' headline shared by all alliance members.
Tolerans' stitching systems have proven to be the most reliable array of in-line stitchers on the market. Inspired by this success, the company recently introduced SPEEDLINER 2.0 in-line stitching systems that are even easier to maintain and operate, reducing cost of maintenance and minimizing downtime. The company has also launched a revolutionary slim model, SPEEDLINER S60 Compact, that only requires half the space in the press. As such, the company has made significant efforts for the future growth of the in-line stitching market and shares similar interests & opportunities with other PrintCity members which provide worldwide expertise in the graphic industry.
John Dangelmaier, President of the PrintCity Alliance welcomed Tolerans by concluding, "Every new member brings special knowledge and capabilities to PrintCity. We welcome Tolerans to our special alliance of future-focused businesses and look forward to seeing them participate in many opportunities with us in 2010 and beyond."
