Utah Paperbox Invests with manroland Again

Friday, April 20, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Utah Paperbox is anxiously awaiting the arrival of their newest manroland press, a Drupa model R907-6 LTTLVV, 56” 7 color Double Coater double extension UV machine.  The latest addition to Utah Paperbox’s pressroom is a massive 115 foot long printing press system scheduled to arrive at their Salt Lake City facility in June 2012.

“Utah Paperbox made the decision to invest with manroland Inc. and in another manroland press based on its reputation, and on the print quality and reliability of our existing equipment.  manroland has taken care of us extremely well  and we look forward to continuing our long term relationship.   The new press, to be installed in a new Leed (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building, will allow us to continue to grow our company and provide our customers with the highest quality printing available.“ states current Chairman and CEO Paul Keyser.  Paul is the third generation family member to run the company that traces its roots back to 1914.

The double coater will allow Utah Paperbox to further enhance the products they manufacture and allow them to expand into new markets.  To produce in a more environmentally friendly way the press was equipped with InlineColorPilot to maintain color consistency and reduce waste sheets, print-network software to further reduce make-ready time, printcom roller coverings and printcom blankets, all of which are crafted to provide optimum print results.  The press also has a suite of QuickChange options to allow for quicker make-ready and press cleanup.     

The new press will complement a R907-6 LV and two R700 machines that Utah Paperbox currently operates.  Later this year manroland will relocate the three existing presses to the new expanded facility.  The manroland PRINTVALUE team is the most qualified and has the best expertise to move and reinstall manroland equipment.

“Utah Paperbox is environmentally aware and environmentally active.  Our goal is to reduce or footprint by 33 % from 2008 to 2015, we are accomplishing this with a new building that is leed certified, using solar energy, reducing the number of pumps and blowers in the plant, installing a central chiller for the complete plant as well as recycling everything  possible, and our manroland equipment is helping us reach this goal” says Steve Keyser, President

“As a long time manroland sheetfed user we are delighted the company remains commited to it’s customers and appears stronger than ever. The manroland team’s engagement and professionalism during our transfer to the new facility is proving to be invaluable“ said Mike Salazar VP of Operations.
