Courier to Double Digital Press Capacity in Indiana

NORTH CHELMSFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Courier Corporation (NAS: CRRC) , one of America's leading innovators in book manufacturing and content management, today announced plans to double its digital printing capacity at its plant in Kendallville, Indiana through the addition of a second HP T410 color inkjet web press.

Courier acquired its first T410 press earlier this year as the heart of a new digital printing operation designed to complement its Kendallville offset plant as well as a preexisting digital facility in North Chelmsford, Massachusetts. With its 42-inch web width, the T410 offers exceptional flexibility in meeting a high volume of diverse printing needs across a full range of run lengths. Since that first installation, demand for Courier's digital solutions has continued to grow among leading educational and trade publishers.

"We knew from the outset that bringing digital capability to Kendallville made sense for our customers and ourselves," said Courier Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James F. Conway III. "But between our rising volume of customized textbook production and growing interest in four-color digital from trade publishers, it quickly became apparent that we needed even more capacity. And with our second T410 press, we will have it.

"Bringing this new press up to speed quickly is also a tribute to the skills and dedication of our 600-strong Kendallville workforce and the excellent cooperation we have received from the city of Kendallville, where Courier has grown and flourished for many years and is now more deeply rooted than ever. I am delighted to be able to offer our customers the best digital and offset service in the industry from this superb location."
