Rolling Meadows, IL, September 16, 2008 – Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced it has installed a new, fully automated six-color, System 38S web press at Solo Printing's expanded 100,000 square-foot facility in Miami, Florida. Solo Printing was founded in 1985 and primarily serves the retail, communications, and electronics industries printing brochures, publications, self-mailers, catalogs, and a variety of other materials. The advanced automation of the System 38S makes it possible to easily answer market demand for faster turnaround and high quality print for long runs. With automatic plate changing capabilities, close loop color, in-line aqueous and gluing, many of Solo Printing's applications can be printed and assembled in one quick operation-saving significant time and money.
"We needed quicker turnaround with competitive pricing for larger jobs-and this Komori press delivers," said Manny Hernandez, president and co-owner of Solo Printing. "As a commercial printer, you always feel you are behind schedule. You need to have a press that can turn jobs around quickly. The System 38S allows for one week turnaround for a job that would take competing presses two or even three weeks to complete."
The Hernandez brothers also operate Solo Printing with an environmental concern. Recognized for its commitment to environmental responsibility on all levels of production, Solo Printing is continuing its green efforts with the Komori System 38S. Its KHS-AI interface system supports the need to minimize paper waste and allows for more efficient plant operations.
"We're thrilled to have Solo Printing in the Komori family," said Mark Hopkins, regional sales manager for Komori's Central East Region. "Solo Printing's unparalleled customer service and careful attention to detail have produced a desire within the company to see customers succeed. The System 38S is perfect for such a customer-focused business."
