Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, Ga. - CDS Publications, Medford, Oregon, a subsidiary of Consolidated Graphics, Inc., reports the installation of its second high-speed, programmable POLAR 78X paper cutter to service the needs of its five-year-old digital center. Steve Brown, President, commented, "CDS acquired an additional POLAR 78X cutter based on its highly efficient performance. Both POLAR cutters are currently deployed 12 hours a day." Brown continued, "during the company's high volume periods, however, it is not unusual for the cutters to run around the clock." The offset print operations of CDS also include a Stahl USA B26 folder, a Stahl B30 folder, a POLAR 137 XT Autotrim cutter, a 40" 6-color Heidelberg Speedmaster CS with inline UV coater and a 2-color Quickmaster QM 46 press.

Brown described the POLAR 78X cutters as very reliable, citing the ease-of-use, rapid set-up and automatic graphic programming that enables a mostly automated working sequence. "We've always had a good experience with Heidelberg, from the sale to the installation itself, to service and support after the sale," Brown said.

Founded in 1906, CDS Publications has established a reputation for quality, on-time service and technological advancement. The company provides marketing communications and education materials for industry segments including technology, catalog and trade publishing, healthcare, finance and other commercial markets. The company's digital center specializes in personalized photo products, on-demand book publishing and direct mail. CDS employs 150 to 350 staff at any given time, subject to seasonal fluctuations.
