Gannett site looks to CC1, Inc. for Waste Reduction/Productivity Increase
Press release from the issuing company
May 23, 2007 -- CC1, Inc. of Portsmouth, New Hampshire announces that The Journal News in White Plains, NY (a Gannett location) recently installed its CRC-610 Automatic Register Control and Register Motorization Package on an 8-color Didde 860 press.
“100% of the work printed on our Didde press is commercial product,” explains Frank Sessa, Production Maintenance Manager at The Journal News. “The press was purchased as a previously owned, rebuilt press and we felt it was important to make upgrades. Our goal is to reduce startup waste and increase overall press speeds to improve productivity while maintaining our stringent quality standards.”
“CC1 has lived up to our expectations. They are one of the most strongly customer-service oriented vendors I’ve dealt with,” Sessa adds. “CC1 clearly defined and outlined all aspects of our installation and training and coordinated extensively with us to work around our busy production schedule.”
“Post-installation support continues to be equally strong,” Sessa continues. “CC1’s Application Engineers, utilizing their TRAM™ press register fingerprinting capabilities inherent with the CRC-610, helped identify mechanical issues on the press specifically related to registration as well as measure results following our fixes. CC1 continues to use this capability of their system to monitor performance and ensure The Journal News achieves the results for which we initially bought the system.”
“We are pleased with the results at the Journal News,” indicates Robin Mills, Vice President of Operations and General Manager of CC1. “The entire process at this site has been one of mutual cooperation and we look forward to our continued partnership.”
