Their hands-on approach guarantees full attention to every job coming from their diverse customer base. The latest investment allows Impress to improve the quality of printed products and therefore, exceed expectations.
The recently installed five colour Komori GL-29 press is designed to print all substrates with equal high-speed stability, even when printing on heavy stock. The running speed is 16,500 sheets per hour, maximum sheet size is 520 x 740 mm. These features allow Impress to support customers with their specific printing needs.
Pat Cotter, Managing Director for Impress Printing Works: “We produce quality multicolour jobs for our customer base, in Ireland and beyond. In fact, 20% of our clients are based abroad. Our clients know we do not compromise on quality and we meet their deadlines every time. That is why they come back and recommend us to others. This brand-new GL-529 press enables us to keep doing just that.”
“I am delighted Impress have installed the first GL-29 press in Ireland. Launched at drupa 2016, this press embodies highly efficient makeready technologies together with the latest generation PDC-SG, closed loop colour management system. These features, along with the associated time and waste sheet savings were influential factors in Mr Cotters decision.”, adds Jason O’Brien, Sales Director for Portman Graphic Ltd., the official Komori dealer in Ireland.
Komori UK Managing Director Steve Turner says: “Impress replaced an ageing Heidelberg SM 74 press with the new Komori GL-529. They visited several companies that have been using Komori presses for many years, before reaching this decision to invest. I am very happy we were fortunate enough to win this important order and cement our partnership with Impress.”
Pat Cotter: “We considered other press manufacturers, the Komori GL-529 was best suited for our work profile and press room. Our decision was not just based on the print quality our customers were accustomed to, other variables such as power consumption and running costs were important.
It certainly helped that we visited several Komori users to see a press in action. Printing companies that we can relate to, in terms of jobs and sizes. It helped us to make a confident and well-thought-out decision that secures our future.”
