RR Donnelley: Recent New Directory Contracts Drive Capital Investment
Press release from the issuing company
CHICAGO, Aug. 17 -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company today announced the purchase of a Man Roland Lithoman web offset press to be installed in its Greeley, Colo., plant. This capital expansion is needed to support the additional volume resulting from new directory print contracts that the company was recently awarded.
In commenting on this new press, John Paloian, RR Donnelley's Group President, Publishing & Retail Services, said, "We will continue to invest in those resources that are needed to support the growth of our directory customers and to maintain our leadership position in this market segment. We are delighted that directory publishers continue to express their satisfaction and confidence by awarding us new business, and RR Donnelley remains committed to delivering superior product quality, service and value, each and every day."
Bill Owens, Governor of Colorado, added, "We've worked hard in Colorado to maintain a jobs-friendly business environment and a top-notch workforce. I am very proud that RR Donnelley has decided to expand its operations in Colorado. This expansion will bring quality jobs to Colorado and help fuel Weld County's economy."
John Paloian recognized Colorado's efforts stating that, "RR Donnelley is very thankful to the local and state government officials who worked with us to provide expansion incentives that encouraged us to select the Greeley plant as the recipient of this latest capital investment. We look forward to a period of growth in the state."
This new press, along with an identical one that was recently installed and is now operational in RR Donnelley's Dwight, Ill., plant, brings tremendous new capacity, capabilities and flexibility to directory publishers. "Customers will continue to receive unrivaled benefits," added Paloian, "as RR Donnelley remains committed to serving this market with a state-of-the-art, high-performance, manufacturing platform." Building expansion and press start up are projected to be completed in 2005.
