Kennesaw, Ga. – Ranked #1 in Forbes “10 States with the Biggest Growths in GDP of 2021,” Utah is home to some of the fastest-growing industries in the country, including Technology, Life Sciences, Aerospace, Outdoor Products, and Health & Beauty. Peczuh Printing, with three production facilities throughout Utah, is one of the largest printers in the state and plays a vital role in the supply chain for many of these industries. To better serve the dynamic needs of its growing customer base, Peczuh is set to install a new Promatrix 106 CS die cutter and Stahlfolder KH 82 from HEIDELBERG in the coming months.
Expanded Capabilities, High Quality Finishing
While traditionally a commercial printer, Peczuh has seen an increased need for packaging, labels, and inserts amongst its customers, especially in its growing pharmaceutical and nutraceutical business. The Promatrix 106 CS is the company’s first HEIDELBERG die cutter and will allow Peczuh to keep up with the rapid growth of the packaging business along Utah’s Wasatch Front. Running at speeds of 8,000 sheets per hour and cutting a wide range of materials from 60# text to 48 pt. board, the Promatrix is a productive and cost-effective solution for printers like Peczuh who are looking to expand into packaging. “We’re going to be able to take on more packaging jobs without needing to outsource,” said Frank Peczuh, Owner of Peczuh Printing. “That means faster turnaround times and higher quality for our customers.” Peczuh’s new Promatrix is also equipped with automatic waste stripping – further enhancing the company’s packaging capabilities and efficiency.
In addition to expanding the packaging side of its business, Peczuh also needed a better finishing solution for its commercial applications. The company, who is equipped with two older folders, was struggling with slower speeds and production interruptions. Set to install at the end of the year, the new Stahlfolder KH 82 will contribute to more reliable and faster production for the thousands of brochures, magazines, and catalogs Peczuh produces every month. The cross-fold unit of the Stahlfolder KH not only offers faster makeready but will also improve Peczuh’s net output. The advanced automation on the machine allows jobs to be stored and recalled for quick and efficient job set-up. “With the current shortage of skilled labor, this user-friendly technology will help us with our production,” said Peczuh. “The KH 82 means we can run faster and more reliably and with less labor.”
Committed to a vibrant, healthy future for the printing industry, Peczuh Printing prides itself on continuously taking care of its customers. These new investments demonstrate the company’s desire to “prepare for the future of Utah and the needs of our customers as they shift,” said Peczuh. Also equipped with a Stahlfolder Ti 36 and POLAR cutter, Peczuh said, “Our partnership with HEIDELBERG is just one facet of our strategy to sustainably grow our business, secure the future of our family of workers, and give back to our community.”
