O'Neil Printing Taking the "Green" Initiative During Tough Economic Times
Press release from the issuing company
(PHOENIX) – Dec. 05, 2008 – O'Neil Printing, Phoenix's premier full service printer, is expanding its "green" initiatives and reducing its carbon foot-print with the addition of the Mutoh ValueJet Printer, an environmentally-safe large format printer, and the company's switch from petroleum-based diesel fuel to biodiesel fuel in its delivery trucks.
These new environmentally-friendly business options will help clients lower their environmental impact and help reduce costs.
"Even during these tough economic times, we're committed to our customers and the environment," said Tony Narducci, president of O'Neil Printing. "We'll continue to use our resources to stay true to those commitments."
Rather than using traditional petroleum-based inks, O'Neil's new ECO-solvent, large format printer, the Mutoh ValueJet Printer, not only uses vegetable-based inks that are environmentally friendly, but also prints on a variety of eco-friendly media.
O'Neil's switch to Biodiesel fuel, a clean burning alternative fuel derived from 100 percent renewable materials, will reduce emissions and carbon footprint.
For more than 100 years, O'Neil has stayed relevant to clients by embracing changes in the environment, economy and technology. In addition to O'Neil's new environmentally-safe additions, the company operates with other "green" capabilities, such as using FSC-certified paper, offering "design-for-green" advice, recycling printing plates and press solvent, and the use of soy-based inks which are manufactured in-house.
O'Neil remains environmentally conscious beyond production and equipment. Many employees use alternative transportation to and from work, including carpooling, ridesharing, public transportation, alternative fuel vehicles and bicycling. Additionally, O'Neil offers incentives to employees who utilize "greener" modes of transportation.
