Mercury Printing Installs Second Komori Press

Thursday, October 09, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Rolling Meadows, IL, October 8, 2008 -- Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, announced that Mercury Printing, a full-service commercial print provider located in Memphis, Tennessee, has recently installed a six-color Lithrone S40 with perfector (LS640P). Mercury Printing produces a wide variety of applications including cards, calendars, magazines, and cookbooks for a diverse client base. Key drivers in the selection of the company's newest Komori included its high level of automation and perfection capabilities, which allows the company to efficiently run print jobs of all quantities.
"This is our second Komori press. We have been a loyal Komori customer since 1999," said Joel Dixon, general manager of Mercury Printing. "We are very pleased with the increase in image quality we have noticed, as delivering high quality products is essential to ensuring client satisfaction. Additionally, our productivity has increased due to the fact our makeready times have been cut in half. This new press has far exceeded our expectations."
By offering sheetfed quality and near-web productivity, the LS640P delivers efficiency because it prints on both sides of the sheet in a single pass. Additionally, as an FSC certified printer, Mercury Printing also enjoys the environmental friendliness of the press. The LS640P reduces resource and energy consumption, reduces the use of chemicals, cuts materials waste, and improves the working environment.

"Working with Mercury Printing has been a true pleasure," said Mark Hopkins, regional manager for Komori's Central East Region. "We are pleased that the range of benefits the Lithrone S40 offers is adding value in both productivity and efficiency. We look forward to a long-lasting future with Mercury as they explore all the advanced capabilities our presses provide."
