“We have developed a reputation for giving our clients personalized attention, professional knowledge, competitive pricing and timeliness,” Brown VP Randy Murray said. “Using environmentally-friendly practices, our goal is to provide our customers with a quality print job, no matter how large or complex. When a newly-installed existing 40-inch sheetfed press was not performing as promised, my team and I began to seek out a new press manufacturer that could deliver exactly the technology and automation needed to provide our level of quality to our customers. In a decisive move, we removed the existing press and replaced it with the new Rapida 106 press. Since its installation five months ago, we’ve reduced our production run time by 35%, found that we have less preplanning for each job, and most surprising, we’ve reduced our makeready times by 50% and even more on difficult runs. The print quality is excellent and we’re just getting started.
“Our goal is to keep ahead of our competition,” Murray added. “Now that we have full UV printing and coating, high speed output, and color control with our new Rapida 106, we are able to differentiate ourselves in our market. We’re seeing rapid growth because we have the ability to turn projects fast at the highest quality.”
Since its start as a family-run business in the early 20th century, Brown has evolved into a full-service commercial printer with offset and digital press options.
“Ten years ago, we were a 20-inch two-color shop; our decision to move into a 40-inch press with UV as well as adding digital printing capabilities has made a huge positive impact for us,” Murray said. “We’re going to continue to invest in new technology. It allows us to be more competitive and produce higher quality work.”
The new Rapida 106 came equipped with Koenig & Bauer’s QualiTronic ColorControl inline color measuring system. on its to maintain its color expertise and enhanced color accuracy for its customers.
Brown Printing is a family-owned commercial printing company providing simple one-color jobs to six-color inline printing with in-house foil stamp and die-cut.
