Original Smith Printing adds a Heidelberg Printmaster PM 52 to line-up

Press release from the issuing company

KENNESAW, Ga. -- April 5, 2007 -- Original Smith Printing of Bloomington, Ill. keeps raising the bar on quality and service, and has a pressroom full of Heidelberg equipment to prove it. The latest addition is a Heidelberg Printmaster PM 52 4-color press, which replaces the company’s existing Heidelberg GTO. “The new press is better in every way,” says Pressroom Manager Dave Voelzke. “Our quality has improved dramatically. We couldn’t be more pleased.” The new PM 52 will have plenty of hard-working company. Original Smith’s pressroom hosts a fleet of Heidelberg presses in every format size, including a pair of 10-color Speedmaster SM 102 perfectors, a 6-color SM 102 perfector with coater, an 8-color Speedmaster SM 74 perfector with coater, a 2-color Heidelberg 102 perfector and a 2-color MO perfector. The shop also operates two Heidelberg cylinder die cutters as well as a flexible, high-speed Dymatrix die cutter. In the bindery, four POLAR paper cutters, two Stahlfolder folders and a pair of Heidelberg Stitchmaster ST 400 saddlestitchers help handle the output from the company’s busy pressroom. The 75-year-old, $40 million, full-service commercial printer employs 205, and serves a national clientele comprised of ad agencies, design firms and corporate accounts. Voelzke’s opinion of Heidelberg as a supplier-partner and equipment manufacturer? “Excellent,” he says. “On both counts.”
