Sun Chemical has been a long-standing ink supplier to magazine and commercial web offset printer Woodford Litho. From the planning stage for the Essex printer’s new high-speed KBA Compacta C618 48pp press, Sun Chemical has worked to ensure the inks used ensure a problem-free commercial start-up. Sun Chemical has linked in its own special web page to Woodford Litho’s web site and webcam facility on www.woodfordlitho.co.uk.
When the order for the KBA was announced in April 2003, Sun Chemical arranged visits for some of Woodford’s production personnel to other Sun Chemical customers in Europe who are running the same type of press.
These visits enabled Woodford’s personnel to see the presses running in a live production environment rather than in a showroom and to have meaningful discussions with printers who know these presses.
