Great Atlantic Graphics Installs a Speedmaster XL 105 Perfector

Press release from the issuing company
Great Atlantic Graphics, headquartered in Malvern, PA recently completed the installation of its second Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105, this one a 4-color perfector, in its Malvern plant. The company also installed a Stahlfolder Ti52 continuous-feed, two-station small-format folder with vertical and stream deliveries in its sister facility, located in King of Prussia, PA. According to Vince Giarrocco, controller, the twin installations will enable Great Atlantic to print and fold a variety of product information sheets (PIs) for clients in the pharmaceutical and educational markets.
“We are extremely happy with the performance of our new XL 105, which easily handles the very thin papers used for pharmaceutical inserts at very high speeds,” Giarrocco said. “Prior to these installations, we had been outsourcing work of this kind. Having brought this capability in-house, we have retrieved a much-needed measure of control over the costs, scheduling and quality requirements related to the production of these product information sheets. As a result, we fully expect to achieve a substantial return on our investment sooner rather than later,” he concluded, adding that the ability to perfect will lend the company one-pass productivity as the market for PIs increasingly moves to two-color.
The company also operates a Speedmaster XL 105 (6-color), a Speedmaster CD 102 6-color, 54” and 45” POLAR cutters, plus 30” and 23” Stahlfolders.
Great Atlantic specializes in high-quality, multi-color sheetfed commercial printing for clients in the advertising, consumer goods, educational and pharmaceutical markets. The company also offers package design, scanning, prepress, retouching, printing and finishing expertise, as well as fulfillment, mailing and digital asset management, and takes pride in its ability to deliver end-to-end service to its customers. FSC and SFI-certified, Great Atlantic is on track to realize around a 23 percent increase in total volume this year. The company employs a combined staff of 80 in its Malvern and King of Prussia facilities.
