Historic Freeport Press Chooses QuadTech

Sussex, WI--09 March 2009--QuadTech, Inc. today announced a new sales agreement with Freeport Press, Freeport, Ohio, which is an short run publication printer and industry leader with almost 130 years of experience in printing magazines, catalogs, brochures and inserts.

Freeport recently installed a Komori 38S web press, fully loaded with QuadTech equipment, at its Freeport facility. Company officials said they were seeking a high degree of production flexibility and enhanced performance that are the hallmarks of the Komori presses.

Freeport coupled the new web press with the QuadTech® Register Guidance System with MultiCam® and Color Control System with Instrument Flight® in order to further reduce make-ready time and waste. Instrument Flight provides outstanding three-color gray balance control throughout the press run. Additionally, all aspects of Freeport’s operation will benefit from increased efficiency with QuadTech’s network-based ICON™ integrated software platform. ICON will enable Freeport’s press operators to run automated press controls from a single, centralized station.

Additionally, Freeport also chose the QuadTech® Data Central™ System to take advantage of the full productivity and print-quality potential of today’s most advanced press controls. The Data Central module works in conjunction with the ICON integrated platform to receive, manage, store and display data that can be used to generate comprehensive reports for monitoring and improving the overall performance of the Komori press.

“Freeport has been delivering high-quality products to its customers for well over a century,” said Karl Fritchen, President of QuadTech. “While QuadTech hasn’t been around for quite as long, we’re pleased that Freeport recognized our long history of delivering high-performance products and services, and chose us to help continue building on their successful business.”
