[Press Release] Ann Arbor, MI (November 29, 2012)—For over a century, Edwards Brothers Malloy has been a leader in 1- and 2-color book manufacturing.  With the purchase of a 40” Heidelberg Speedmaster offset sheetfed press dedicated to 4-color text work, Edwards Brothers Malloy can now offer 4-color book and journal printing in runs from one to 3,000 copies.  The Heidelberg offset press will be fully operational in the company’s State Street plant in Ann Arbor by the middle of January 2013.
 
Edwards Brothers Malloy is also adding capacity to its 4-color digital fleet with two new digital presses: another Kodak NexPress digital press (its fourth) that is being installed at the State Street plant and a Xerox iGen 4 being installed in the Oxnard, California digital book center. The company will produce 4-color books in both soft and hard cover formats in a variety of bind styles and text stocks.
 
“We’ve had great success printing 4-color books in our digital print centers but had to turn down 4-color offset book work because we weren’t set up to handle it,” said John Edwards, President and CEO.  “By adding an offset 4-color press and increasing our digital color capacity, we can now accommodate 4-color runs from one copy up to 3,000.  It just made sense to be able to offer this additional service to our customers.”
 
With the largest fleet of Timsons offset web presses in North America, a full complement of sheetfed presses, and nine digital print centers in the U.S. and the U.K., Edwards Brothers Malloy can offer the right press for each stage of a book’s life cycle, delivering more than 100 million high-quality books and journals a year.
