White Stone, VA, March 2004—At its recent midwinter meeting in Coral Springs, Florida, the Research and Engineering Council of NAPL toured two area printers to see first-hand the application of the latest technologies in the graphic arts industry.
At the St. Ives, Inc., plant in Hollywood, Florida, the group was hosted by Mark R. Angstrom, Senior Vice President of the St. Ives US Division and South Florida General Manager. A premier web printing facility, the St. Ives plant includes elaborate studio facilities used for catalog preparation.
At the Rex Three facility in Sunrise, Florida, the group was hosted by Vice President of Manufacturing Vincent Sita. The Rex Three operation is one of the most progressive vertically integrated communications companies in North America, and includes extensive sheetfed printing, binding and fulfillment capability. Rex Three was one of the first companies to grasp the significance of digital imaging and to provide collateral management for their clients.
In discussing the tours, R&E Council Managing Director Ronald L. Mihills said: “The R&E Council of NAPL is grateful for the opportunity to tour two of the most modern graphic arts facilities in North America. Plant tours are anxiously anticipated by those attending R&E Council events, and are an important part of many Council events.”
