NEPA is adding a second Koenig & Bauer Rapida press, to be delivered in the spring of 2020.
“Our work is of the highest quality and time-sensitive and we work hard to consistently exceed our customers' expectations,” said Mike Collins Sr, president of NEPA. “Our current Koenig & Bauer Rapida 145 57-inch press has added value to our business and allowed us to become trusted professionals that deliver exceptional products to our customers.
"Due to the continued growth of craft beer sales, now amounting to 24% of the total $114-billion U.S. beer market, as well as our continued new market penetration, we are excited about adding a second Rapida to our pressroom equipped with increased efficiencies and added capabilities that will contribute to the high level of quality and service that our customers expect from us.”
The new press, with a top speed of 17,000 shp, will be equipped with a host of automated modules specific to Koenig & Bauer such as QualiTronic Color Control, QualiTronic PrintCheck, and QualiTronic Instrument Flight – grey-balance control from System Brunner.
