Press release from the issuing company

CJK Group continues to invest in the Madison, Wisconsin printer

Brainerd, Minn. – CJK Group, Inc. announced today that it has purchased a 72”-wide Goss Sunday 3000 web offset press for its Webcrafters, Inc. business unit based in Madison, Wisconsin.

The new press features Goss gapless technology for optimum paper savings and is configured with both PFF and combination folders. Additionally, the OmniX system workflow offers presetting capabilities allowing for quick make-ready and consistent quality during the run. The new press is scheduled to arrive in Madison early in the fourth quarter of 2018.

In addition to the Sunday 3000, Webcrafters has acquired, and is in the process of installing, a new EFI enterprise resource planning system, a 10-color sheetfed press, a near line UV coater, a high-capacity collator with integrated high-die, and a juvenile hardcover line. These capital investments are testament to CJK’s promise when it acquired Webcrafters to transform the Madison-based company into a best-in-class printer well positioned for future growth.

CJK Group, Inc.’s CEO, Chris Kurtzman, states: “We’ve been very pleased with the performance of Webcrafters since the acquisition last November. The entire Webcrafters team has embraced significant change while maintaining strong operational execution with an unwavering commitment to providing best-in-class service to clients.” Mr. Kurtzman goes on to say: “along with the significant retooling taking place in Madison, the Webcrafters platform of offset and digital print, combined with one of the largest specialty finishing operations in the U.S., is well positioned to consistently deliver value to an expanding customer base.”
