The First GLX640 Installed in the Midwest
Rolling Meadows, IL - Komori America Corporation announced today that Specialty Print Communications (SPC), a national solutions provider to direct marketers with headquarters in Niles, IL, is the first print provider in the Midwest to purchase a six-color Lithrone GX40 (GLX640) press equipped with full UV to replace a Heidelberg press. SPC believes in making a continuous reinvestment in technology to provide its blue-chip client base a broader array of cutting-edge marcom executions. SPC produces high volume, highly engaging direct mail with integrated coupon capabilities, sophisticated loyalty programs and more that are unlike any others in its market space.
“We have our heart and soul in innovation, so we are super excited to be the first company in the Midwest to welcome this technologically advanced GLX640 to our pressroom,” said Adam LeFebvre, president of SPC. “The fact we could get a 41-inch press configured with UV was a clear differentiator for us because it will give us the breadth of capabilities we need to not only increase our output, but also produce high-gloss, highly creative applications using a variety of coatings, gold, silver and other special effects increasingly in demand from our diverse mix of customers.”
Serving a roster of household names in the retail, financial, insurance and travel markets, SPC is looking forward to capitalizing on Komori’s advanced technology inherent in the GLX640 to offer enhanced color reliability, flexibility, reduced makeready and faster running speeds that will speed time to market, making it possible to deliver even the most complex projects quickly.
“Another important consideration after looking at several competitive presses was our experience with the Komori culture,” noted LeFebvre. “You have to have trust and faith in a partnership when your livelihood depends on people being there with what you need when you need it. Komori worked aggressively to meet all our requirements and time constraints, and was the best fit for us as a company. We are very excited to partner with a company like Komori.”
“Solid partnerships are extremely important to all of us at Komori,” said Jacki Hudmon, senior vice-president of sales. “We are very happy that the Specialty Print Communications team recognizes this and we know their new press will provide them a competitive advantage in the markets they serve. We are even more pleased to welcome SPC to the Komori family.”
