HP today announced that Salt Lake city-based Sun Print Solutions purchased an HP PageWide Web Press T230, the company’s first production inkjet press, to expand digital print capacity and invest in growing general commercial print application areas such as direct mail.
Founded in 1941, Sun Print Solutions, a Sun Litho company, remains one of the oldest and largest general commercial printers west of the Rockies. First adopting digital print technology in 2010 with an HP Indigo 5500 Digital Press, the company went on to install one of the first HP Indigo 10000 Digital Presses, now with three HP Indigo 10000’s at full production capacity. With its new HP PageWide Web Press T230, Sun Print Solutions can tackle a new volume of digital pages, continuing to offer customers the value of variable data printing at significantly increased production speeds, with print speeds up to 400 feet per minute.
The company is specifically looking to invest in its digital direct mail offering, recently purchasing a mail house that will be one of the key drivers of growth in combination with its new HP PageWide Web Press T230. Additionally, Sun Print Solutions is now HIPPA-compliant, allowing the company to apply its new high-speed digital capabilities to the healthcare, financial and political arenas.
“The HP Indigo 10000’s have been instrumental in the quick growth of our digital print offering, so much so that we are currently at max production capacity and looking to expand our portfolio with a next-level digital solution,” said Jeff Isbell, CEO and president, Sun Print Solutions. “With the HP PageWide Web Press T230, we will not only greatly increase our digital capacity to meet current customer demand, but continue to evolve this legacy company in an industry where the future is digital.”
