Press release from the issuing company

Large $8.4 million capital investment will differentiate New York packaging supplier

Recognizing the need to increase its capacity and maintain its high quality production, Beyer Graphics, a leading New York pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and over-the-counter packaging supplier, has placed an order for two new KBA Rapida 106 41-inch UV presses—an eight-color plus coater and a specially-configured nine-color press that is one of only a few in the U.S. This large $8.4 million capital investment is the firm’s first partnership with KBA.

“The investment in these two new high-performance presses will drive our business even further and enhance our capabilities,” says Dan Beyer, president of Beyer Graphics. “We’ll be able to provide our customers with faster, more efficient, one-pass, higher quality work due to the fast press speeds and unique automation found on the presses. With this purchase, we are certainly differentiating ourselves from our competitors, attesting to our strength and commitment to our customers.”

The first press being delivered to Beyer in November 2015 is a KBA Rapida 106 eight-color press with coater. After removal of the two current presses from another press manufacturer, Beyer will take delivery in February 2016 of a specially-designed Rapida 106 nine-color press. The latter has a unique configuration of eight printing units plus a coater then two drying units plus another printing unit followed by another coater and a 12 ft extended delivery.  

“We chose KBA because of its leadership experience and reputation in the packaging field and the ability to provide this custom-made nine-color press,” says Beyer. “Plus, we felt KBA had superior technology and its upfront service and support have been very valuable to us.”

Since 1982, clients have counted on Beyer Graphics for creative packaging solutions. Founded in West Babylon, NY, by William Beyer, Sr. as a provider of apparel packaging solutions, Beyer Graphics has grown and evolved into one of the leading printing and packaging design companies specializing in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and apparel industries. Beyer Graphics produces approximately 20,000,000 structural, custom and folding boxes and cartons monthly for over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical, vitamin, supplement and cosmetics clients from 71,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facilities in Commack, NY. These facilities also provide electronic prepress services for apparel packaging solutions manufactured overseas via Beyer Graphics Far East Ltd., a Hong Kong subsidiary, and a partnership in Honduras, producing approximately seven million packages monthly. Today, pharmaceutical and cosmetics packaging comprise about 80 percent of the company’s operation and apparel packaging the remaining 20 percent.
