Press release from the issuing company
KENNESAW, Ga. - September 24, 2007 - The Hartley Press buys a POLAR 115X from Heidelberg
The Hartley Press, located in Jacksonville, Fla., recently replaced a 12-year-old paper cutter with a new, 45" high-speed programmable POLAR 115X cutter from Heidelberg. According to machine maintenance manager Jim Klusmeyer, the new cutter programs more quickly and yields many more cuts per knife on a wide range of stocks from paper to chip board. "The new cutter is a pleasure to run. The operator is a lot happier, that's for sure," Klusmeyer says. The Hartley Press was founded in 1963 as a supplier of stationery and business forms. Today, the $15 million general commercial printer provides general commercial printing and related services to customers based in Florida and throughout the southeast. The Hartley Press employs 120.
