Press Release: Edwards Brothers Malloy Acquires Second Ricoh InfoPrint 5000 Inkjet Press
Ann Arbor, MI (September 18, 2014)-Edwards Brothers Malloy announced that it has acquired another Ricoh continuous form inkjet press. The InfoPrint 5000 MP monochrome press is being installed this month and will be operational in October in the company's Lillington, North Carolina digital print center. It will be used for both print-on-demand as well as short runs up to 1,500 copies.
"Our experience with our first Ricoh InfoPrint press in our Ann Arbor plant has been very good-we wanted to expand that efficiency to our North Carolina operation," said John Edwards, President and CEO of Edwards Brothers Malloy. "The press is capable of producing the good quality halftones our customers demand so we'll be able to use it to more economically and quickly produce some of the work currently produced on our offset sheetfed presses."
The press installation is part of Edwards Brothers Malloy's ongoing investment in its digital manufacturing operation, which is experiencing sales growth of more than 30% per year. Like the company's other print-on-demand hubs, the North Carolina digital print center can produce both soft and hard cover books in one to four colors down to a quantity of one, with shipping service to 90% of the U.S. population within 1-2 days of manufacture, often at ground rates.
