Ross Bindery in Southern California Buys Four New Itoh Paper Cutters
Press release from the issuing company
PORTLAND, OR - April 6, 2001 -- Litho Development and Research (http://www.LDR.com) recently announced that Ross Bindery, a Trade Bindery in Sante Fe Springs, California, has purchased four new Itoh paper cutters.
Rolling blackouts and fears of an economic slowdown or recession are not a problem for George Jackson, president and Horst Doerzapf, CEO, of Santa Fe Springs, CA-based Ross Bindery. While many in the printing industry may shy away from making purchases during these trying economic times, Ross Bindery is forging ahead with some big moves.
That fact is verified by Jackson as he announces Ross Bindery's purchase of four new Itoh paper cutting machines, supplied by LDR International. "The need for the four new cutters came from our company's desire to keep up with the newest technology," Jackson explains. He felt that the new Itoh machines were desirable due to the computerized technology, speed of production and the paper handling abilities of the equipment. He and Doerzapf also wanted new machinery, not used or revamped equipment, for their trade finishing operation.
"Keeping new technology in the shop at all times keeps quality up for our customers," Jackson contends. The four new Itoh cutters allowed Ross Bindery to retire four older Schneider-Senator models.
The Itoh cutter's double arm knife bar pull, which pulls the knife through from both ends, was one of the selling points for Ross Bindery. Jackson notes this helps bolster the speed of the machine, and allows them to cut larger lifts accurately. All of the operators at Ross picked up on how to use the equipment quickly, he adds.
