HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Dec 02, 2008 -- St Ives Inc, one of America's leading web offset printing companies, is preparing to install a second new Komori System 38 web offset printing press at its Hollywood, Florida, facility. The new Komori press is scheduled to arrive in mid-December 2008 and expected to be placed into full production mode in early March 2009.
"St Ives purchase of another state-of-the-art press demonstrates our company's continued commitment to the growth of our business," says Wayne R. Angstrom, St Ives' Chairman/CEO. "We continue to invest capital in support of our stakeholders and our production process in an effort to assure the continued satisfaction of our customers.
"This second press follows a highly successful start-up of the first new Komori System 38 at our Hollywood facility earlier this calendar year," adds Angstrom. "These new presses allow us to reach color in just 800 cutoffs and pull a complete four-color changeover in less than 12 minutes. Combined with net speeds in excess of 40,000 impressions per hour, we are now ultra competitive across a full range of products from quantities as low as a few thousand pieces up to several hundred thousand pieces per order."
