Consolidated Graphics, Inc. Expands Relationship With InfoPrint Solutions
(Press Release) BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - April 18, 2011) - InfoPrint Solutions, a Ricoh company, today announced that Frederic Printing, a Consolidated Graphics, Inc. (NYSE: CGX) company in Aurora, Colo., has completed its second installation of the market-leading InfoPrint 5000 inkjet production system to enable the printing of high-quality print-on-demand (POD) textbooks, direct mail pieces and election ballots. This latest move demonstrates the value that this high-speed inkjet platform brings to Frederic's overall print operations.
"Since our initial installation of the InfoPrint 5000, it has proven to be a reliable, efficient and flexible component of our print production environment, and we're excited to expand our inkjet offerings with this next platform," said Chris Greene, president of Frederic Printing. "This decision is a testament to the success we've had with the InfoPrint 5000 and its versatility, which has provided us with the flexibility needed for short runs, the reliability of increased operational efficiency and, most importantly, the ability to meet and exceed the needs of our broad range of customers."
The first deployment of the InfoPrint 5000 provided Frederic with a POD solution that minimized overall cost of ownership for customers by reducing the cost of warehouse storage and obsolescence. The versatile and flexible functionality of the InfoPrint 5000 was also an important requirement for Frederic, which services a variety of customers across many industries, including education, government and marketing
organizations. Because the needs of these customers vary significantly, the ability to quickly adjust the printing environment and produce short runs is crucial to Frederic's success. The InfoPrint 5000 also supports sustainable and cost-effective printing practices by offering one of the lowest power consumption rates of production inkjet systems, compact size, operational efficiency and use of water-based inks.
"The InfoPrint 5000 continues to serve as a seamless complement to our integrated digital footprint, which is the world's largest. Upon installation, we quickly experienced for ourselves why this printing system is so successful, which is why we decided to continue on this path with another deployment," said Ric Davis, executive vice president of Operations at Consolidated Graphics. "Proven as a solid, long-term
investment, the InfoPrint 5000 has enabled us to provide an exceptional level of quality that meets and exceeds the expectations of our customers, regardless of their industry or print needs."
