Metroplex Finishing Increases Sales With KPG Directpress 5034 Di System

Press release from the issuing company

Norwalk, Connecticut, USA — Since installing the Kodak Polychrome Graphics (KPG) DirectPress 5034 DI System in December 2003, Metroplex Finishing has enjoyed faster makeready times, high quality color reproduction, and a 27 percent boost in sales. “The KPG DirectPress System helps us to enhance our overall productivity, including an average increase of four jobs per shift,” said Rick Dorman, President, Metroplex Finishing. “We also save valuable time because the superior color quality results in fewer returned jobs.” Headquartered in Flower Mound, Texas, with additional locations in Dallas and Richardson, Texas, Metroplex Finishing primarily handles production of publications and direct mail materials. The KPG DirectPress 5034 DI System, a two-page, four-color digital imaging press, brings together the quality advantages of offset printing with the workflow and automation benefits of digital printing. This combination presents new growth opportunities for commercial printers, trade shops, and digital service bureaus that want to tap into the growing demand for high-quality, quick-turnaround, short-run, four-color work. Based on the initial success with its first KPG DirectPress 5034 DI System, Metroplex Finishing recently ordered a second unit, due for installation this fall.
