Innovationdays veteran Bill Graushar of Quad Graphics shares his experiences

Published on February 18, 2011

Cary chats with Bill Graushar of Quad Graphics, who has been at Innovationdays since the beginning and asks Bill what's caught his attention this year.

Cary:  Hi, I'm Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and I'm here with Bill Graushar who is the Vice President of finishing operations for Quad Graphics.

Bill Graushar::  Post-press.  Post-press finish.

Cary:  Post-press.

Bill:  Post-press operations.  Yep.

Cary:  For Quad Graphics.

Bill:  Yes.

Cary:  Welcome.

Bill:  Thank you.  Thank you very much, Cary.

Cary:  So we're here at Hunkeler Innovation Days 2011 and I understand that this is not your first time to come to one of these events.

Bill:  No, I think -- boy, it dates me.  I've been coming to this for about probably 20 years when Fronz started this in Zofingen.  We started going to his shows and watching, looking, listening, and seeing where he was going and today we are a user of his equipment.  He keeps us state-of-the-art plus he's a good friend.

Cary:  That's great.

Bill:  Yeah, and we work well together.

Cary:  And so in 2011, what do you see in here that's intriguing?

Bill:  Wow!  That's a big question.  Going through all the digital presses, Xerox introduced their new press at the show here as a first as a for sale.  Our friends at Muller Martini is showing their digital machine, digital stitcher.  Hunkeler with their book block feeder.

Cary:  That's pretty cool.

Bill:  Solutions.

Cary:  Double pile.

Bill:  Oh, awesome.  That starts to give us more suppliers to look at; a lot of more innovation happening.  There's a lot of excitement on the floor because this is a small show and everybody's bringing the best of the best.  You meet a lot of good people, good friends, you make good friends.  It's been a good show for me.

Cary:  And it's a beautiful environment.

Bill:  Oh, the environment, you look outside the mountains are right there.

Cary:  Yeah. 

Bill:  You can't ask for anything better than that, Cary.

Cary:  That's terrific.  Thank you.
