KBA Presents Large Minneapolis Point-of-Purchase Producer with Press Model

Press release from the issuing company

March 5, 2004 -- KBA North America, a leading sheetfed offset press manufacturer based in Williston,VT, has presented Meyers Display, a $65 million 300-employee Minneapolis designer and producer of point of purchase and promotion materials, with a hand-made replica of its new KBA Rapida 162A 65" six-color sheetfed press with inline aqueous and UV coater and an extended delivery. The Rapida 162 A was installed in April 2003. “We chose the Rapida 162A because it allows us to expand our capability to print on a variety of substrates, it gives us higher speed and quality, and it increases our throughput,” says Mark Dillon, director of marketing at Meyers Display. “Our new Rapida has so much more automation than our other presses. Plus it is an increased size and we’ve added UV to print with hybrid inks. That gives us the flexibility to move between conventional printing and UV printing on different substrates.” Meyers Display was formed in 1949 as a commercial printer. In 1978, the company formed a new division known as Meyers Label, which today is one of the nation's leading manufacturers of high quality self adhesive labels for consumer products including the food, beverage, cosmetic and health care industries as well as multi ply promotional coupon labels. In 1998, the firm decided to focus exclusively on temporary high-quality point-of-purchase displays and signage for large nationwide retail, brand marketers, ad agencies and promotional firms, such as Target, Best Buy, Blockbuster Video, Columbia Sportswear, Hormel Meats, and Kraft Foods. The firm has sales and design offices in Minneapolis, St. Louis, Denver, San Francisco, and Raleigh, North Carolina.
