Rolling Meadows, IL, April 16, 2008 -- Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced that ProGraphics Communications in Atlanta, GA, has installed a 40" Komori Lithrone S Series (LS640), the company's fourth Komori press. For over 20 years, ProGraphics has honed its reputation as an innovative full-service commercial printer by providing consulting, prepress, printing, bindery, and fulfillment for the telecommunications and healthcare industries, as well as for colleges, universities, and advertising agencies. ProGraphics added the high performance LS640 to its 70,000 square foot operation to increase productivity and speed time to market when creating time-sensitive, high-quality materials. Taking advantage of the LS640's quick makeready and run speeds will help ProGraphics significantly increase its press capabilities.
Key drivers in purchasing the new press includes the fact the LS640 delivers a fully automated, real-world solution that makes it possible to significantly reduce job cycle times, improve productivity and increase profitability with today's shorter run printing work. "In order to stay competitive in this on-demand market, we needed a press that would increase our productivity and shorten lead times," said John Pope, president, ProGraphics Communications. "For years, our company has turned to Komori because they ensure a high quality product to help meet our clients' needs. This time wasn't any different. When we sought to enhance our printing and production capabilities, Komori delivered the LS640 to address our business needs and ultimately foster additional growth."
"We're always pleased when our customers are satisfied," said Mark Hopkins, regional manager for Komori's Central East Region. "ProGraphics has been a loyal Komori customer for years and we're happy to provide the technology that supports their success. They know and appreciate the best and we're proud that ProGraphics considers Komori to be in that category."
