Tahiti in the far south pacific: the land of Gauguin, Cook, Bligh, and Robert Louis Stevenson. The isles of mystery, romance, warm waters, and endless sunsets. Here the market leading printer is Imprimerie STP Multipress, based in the commercial capital Papeete.
As the capital’s printer, STP’s business is built on versatility and printing quality. Brochures, magazines, books, posters, stationery, and packaging are all produced at the company’s 3,000 square meters facility in the Papeete industrial zone.
Outpacing the competition: ROLAND 700 HiPrint with InlineColorPilot
STP provides the full range of production with sheetfed, web offset, and digital printing facilities as well as prepress and finishing. Their current sheetfed fleet consists of seven presses of various vintages, with the majority being manroland presses. To increase the lead over their competitors, STP has just taken delivery of a brand-new ROLAND 700 HiPrint with ROLAND InlineColorPilot. Chairman of Directors, Benoit Gerard, says, “We face offshore competition from France, China, and South East Asia. This investment in the latest technology from manroland will markedly increase our competitive edge. The ROLAND InlineColorPilot in particular will automate color control, reduce our waste, and make it easier for our operators to produce work of the very highest quality.” Benoit continues, “We employ around 50 staff in two shifts and process more than 620 tonnes of paper annually. The new ROLAND 700 will improve efficiencies across our whole business.”
Steve Dunwell, Managing Director of manroland Australasia, congratulated STP Multipress on their decision saying, “We are delighted to be installing a new ROLAND 700 HiPrint in Tahiti. STP Multipress is Tahiti’s foremost printer and the new manroland technology they have chosen will serve them well for many years to come. Congratulations to STP Multipress for choosing manroland, we appreciate your confidence in our products.”
