LIS, founded in 1994, is committed to the development and production of digital high-speed commercial printing systems that mount directly on virtually any web printing press. These systems augment the capabilities of existing printing presses by providing the ability to print variable data such as barcodes, numbers, graphics and images in line with the conventional offset printing task at rates in excess of 400 pages-per-minute. This "Print-on-Demand" capability, a buzzword in the printing industry, permits the commercial real-time printing of any document regardless of the print job's size; from hundreds to millions of pages.
LIS's goal is to become a major supplier of equipment, software and supplies for the commercial printer. Printing is America's third largest manufacturing industry, employing more than 1.2 million people in almost 46,000 establishments, producing over $165 billion of printed product and purchasing $4.5 billion of hardware and $7.7 billion of consumable products during 2003.
