Press release from the issuing company
Lincolnwood, Illinois, July 2001—London Litho has announced the appointment of Jay Hanrahan as Director of The Opus Group—the company’s wholly owned, global consulting subsidiary—concurrent with a broadening of the services offered. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Hanrahan joined London Litho in 1994 and served most recently as Manager of Training. His staff of application specialists, systems analysts, and workflow consultants will become part of The Opus Group.
Upon making the announcement, London Litho President Eric London said, "Jay Hanrahan’s technical expertise and outstanding communication skills will take London Litho to the next level in delivering complete end-to-end consulting solutions to the printing industry and beyond. With the addition of Hanrahan and his staff, The Opus Group services now include hardware and software training, workflow automation, and asset management.."
The Opus Group counsels customers regarding color management and color control, implements the exclusive London Litho Synclinal MAPP™ technology, and assists in translating customer vision into deliverable products and services. In describing the expanded services available, Hanrahan commented: "Essentially, this is a marriage of several different aspects of consulting and training that will serve to expand on the original Opus vision. London Litho customers are aware that investing in technology alone will not increase productivity or profitability," he added. "An essential part of implementing any technology-based solution involved careful design of the system as well as operator training." The Opus Group provides the tools necessary to help customers reduce costs, improve product quality, increase employee skill and efficiency, and reach new markets."
