CDS Publications, a Consolidated Graphics Company, Installs First Komori Press
Press release from the issuing company
Rolling Meadows, IL, April 10, 2007—Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced CDS Publications, a Consolidated Graphics company, located in Medford, OR, recently installed a six-color Lithrone S40 perfector with coater (LS640P). The LS640P is the first Komori press for this West Coast printer, and is further supporting the company’s ability to produce an impressive range of marketing communications and educational materials. Founded in 1906, CDS has an extensive history of serving clients in several industries including technology, catalog, trade publishing, healthcare, and finance. The company reports the new Komori press exceeds its high performance expectations and is affording it the opportunity to take on higher volumes of work. Faster thru-put has been another major advantage for CDS, as it better positions the company to compete with web-press quality while retaining an excellent consistency of color.
Additional key drivers in purchasing the press included Komori’s outstanding reputation in the industry, as well as the comprehensive perfecting capabilities and impressive color control of the press. The perfecting feature was noted as particularly valuable for the company’s book and manual business as it significantly reduces printing time. CDS is also benefiting from press features designed to supersede the major challenges of perfecting printing, such as matching the front-to-back print quality and problems from irregular sheet travel.
“CDS Publications has a longstanding reputation for exceeding the needs of its customers,” said Paul Peyrebrune, vice president of sales for Komori’s Western Region. “We are pleased to begin this partnership with CDS, and look forward to further supporting the company’s dedication to service and success.”
