Wells Printing Installs Fifth Sakurai

MONTGOMERY, AL—Wells Printing recently installed its fifth Sakurai offset press, a five-color 580SDC press with coater, purchased from Innovative Graphic Solutions (formerly Independent Graphic Service). The 15,000 iph 580SDC, which provides up to a 50 percent productivity boost to half-size printers, will be used to print annual reports and a full range of marketing materials for Wells Printing clients.

Wells Printing is a high-end, general commercial printer serving a blend of retail, industrial, non-profits, as well as advertising and design agency clients from the local region and as far away as Oregon, Texas and New Jersey. The third-generation company operates out of a 200,000-square-foot facility in Perimeter Park, not far from its original location, and is managed by the son of the founders, Irvin Wells.

Wells Printing’s first of five Sakurai presses was a four-color 466 SIP installed in 2003, followed by a two-color 272 EPS installed the next year, a six-color 675 SDC with coater in 2005, a four-color 466 in 2007, and its newest five-color 580 SDC with coater at the end of 2012.
