“After careful examination of business conditions, we concluded it would be best to divest this smaller portion of our business,” said Mark J. Levin, president, Sun Chemical North American Commercial Group. “However, we were eager to find a partner like Day International that we could continue to work with to supply a total printing solution to our commercial printing customers. Day has agreed to continue to supply Sun Graphic blankets to Sun Chemical for the commercial sheetfed, packaging, coldset web (single wide) markets.
“Sun Chemical will close the Sun Graphic blanket manufacturing facility in Pompano Beach, FL, effective Aug. 31, 2006. That decision was made due to anticipated high investment costs necessary to meet regulations and boost operational efficiency,” Mr. Levin said.
