Rolling Meadows, IL, May 20, 2008 -- Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced Quality Printing, a full-service commercial print provider, has recently installed a six-color Lithrone S40 (LS640-45). Located on six acres of property in the Berkshires region of Massachusetts, Quality Printing is a forty-five year old, multi-generational company that primarily serves the non-profit educational sector and advertising agencies. Key drivers in the selection of the company’s newest Komori included its advanced automation, the ability to decrease makeready times, and an increased capability for production of complex projects.
A loyal Komori customer since 1989, Quality Printing is enjoying the increased productivity they are experiencing using both presses. “Having already purchased an eight-color Lithrone last year, we originally installed the new press for back-up purposes. Almost immediately, however, we were running both presses at full capacity. We are most impressed with the flexibility that the fully automated system provides, allowing us to easily summarize our efficiency,” said John DiSantis, president of Quality Printing.
Quality Printing produces large quantities of four-color applications for their customers and is pleased with the LS640’s capacity to handle complex projects. With customer satisfaction being the company’s main mission, they have been impressed with the six color’s reduction in makeready time, allowing them to provide their customers a quicker turnaround time. “This press is tremendously fast,” said DiSantis.
“We are very excited that the Lithrone S40 is providing such excellent results for Quality Printing,” said Ken Sabol, vice president, sales for Komori’s eastern region. “Exceeding our customers’ expectations is always our goal, so it is extremely gratifying to expand our relationship with Quality Printing.”
