KENNESAW, Ga. – November 27, 2007 – Corporate Image, a specialty printer in Salt Lake City, Utah, recently installed a 45” POLAR 115 X guillotine cutter to handle large vinyl sheets for a particular client. “We’re able to cut more up on bigger sheets now,” reports Production Manager Mike Martinez. The new cutter is a step up in size from the company’s four-year-old 36” POLAR cutter and a 28” POLAR 72 the company purchased almost 25 years ago. Flexibility is important to the custom printing operation, which employs 15 people and creates labels, decals, fleet graphics, plastic and metal signage, vehicle striping and more for customers nationwide. “Not only does Heidelberg make a great product, but its service reps are fast and responsive. We experience very little downtime on any of our POLAR equipment,” Martinez says.
