Press release from the issuing company

New Web Presses add capacity, speed & automation to Allied’s Pressroom

Manchester, CT - Allied Printing Services, a third generation family owned and operated commercial and financial printer, today announced its latest equipment purchase, adding two Komori System 38S web presses. The 65-year old printing company has chosen Komori for their ability to deliver unmatched automation, versatility, quality and waste reduction.  

“Komori was really the ‘dark horse’ at the outset of our broad search for new webs, because we did not have a pre-existing relationship with the press manufacturer. As we took a deeper dive, Komori’s superior technology really impressed us.  The System 38S offers automation and quality control that is unmatched in the web offset market,” said John Sommers, president and CEO of Allied Printing Services. ”These two new presses will give us a significant boost in production in our web pressroom and complement our already extensive sheet-fed press capacity.”  Earlier in 2014 Allied added two new high speed KBA sheet-fed presses.  The new web presses are expected to be in operation by the Fall of 2015.

With versatility being a deciding factor in selecting the presses, Allied Printing Services anticipates the automatic plate changing capabilities, closed loop color control, and semi-automatic flying paster for the Komori System 38S offers will reduce Allied’s makeready time by more than 50 percent, which will improve productivity and drive down costs for its diverse customer base. Additionally, Komori’s KHS-AI interface system supports Allied’s goal to significantly reduce paper waste and promote more efficient plant operations while maintaining top-of-the-line quality. 

“Allied Printing Services takes their partnerships very seriously, and we are thrilled to have them join the Komori family,” said Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president of sales for Komori America. “The System 38S delivers a wealth of advanced technologies that ensure the performance, quality and reliability required for a company with diverse customer requirements like Allied Printing Services.”
