CHICAGO, IL — January 8, 2019 — RMGT is pleased to announce multiple installations of RMGT presses with LED-UV curing technology in greater Chicago and the surrounding areas. 2018 marks the 10-year anniversary of RMGT leadership in developing LED-UV technology for sheet-fed offset presses. This industry changing anniversary lining up with five new RMGT press investments in the area is seen as confirmation that RMGT and LED-UV curing is changing the landscape of print in the Midwest. In addition to these five printers, six other Midwestern companies also purchased RMGT LED-UV equipped presses from Graphco, RMGT Midwest Distributor, during 2018.
Each of these eleven companies is enjoying the efficiency and productivity improvements offered by RMGT’s robust suite of make-ready automation, high-speed print production and LED-UV curing as they expand their market share in each of their local and regional areas. As LED-UV becomes not just mainstream but highly stable technology, these companies are perfect examples of how adopting the right level of automation and technology can bring new profitability to both their offset print volume and also to the digital work that they “reverse cannibalize” onto their RMGT presses.
Martin One Source
As the name indicates, Martin One Source is a truly full-service commercial printer that offers offset print, digital print, office supplies & furniture, apparel and mailing services to list just some of their capabilities. They are currently installing an RMGT 9 Series press equipped with an LED-UV curing system. Having already experienced the advantages of printing with conventional UV on their Ryobi 7 Series press for the past 10 years, Martin One Source quickly embraced the advantages of LED-UV. “When we analyzed the cost savings of switching to LED-UV, the impact on our business was dramatic,” states Chuck Martin, President, Martin One Source. “We are committed to offset printing and it was an easy cost savings decision to invest in the 9 Series press from RMGT.” Martin One Source meets the needs of its customers from 3 locations around central Illinois with headquarters in Champaign. “After so many years of excellent service from our original Ryobi, sticking with the new RMGT 9 was an easy choice for us.” concludes Martin, “If it ain’t broke why fix it.”
“These five installations provide the tangible evidence of how RMGT technology and LED-UV curing is revolutionizing what offset printers can do,” states Derek Gordon, Midwest Regional Manager for Graphco, the RMGT Distributor in the Midwest. “They also confirm what I hear every day from my customers. Offset printing is still central to the growth strategies of these commercial printers. Thanks to technologies like LED-UV curing, offset print is becoming much more profitable than digital while actually speeding turnaround times. And since we bring added profit to a much larger part of our customer’s volume the impact on their bottom line is much greater. I think our company motto says it best. Our customers have an unfair advantage.”
