Plant Closure Rocks Southern California --Michelson

May 2009

Unfortunately, for the Los Angeles-area print community, the timing of the closure could not be much worse. The Anderson announcement came on the heels of the Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy by Insync Marketing Solutions in early March. Formed by the combination of Insync Media and Graphic Press, its assets—which include two 38?, double-web Sunday presses; one 11-color and three eight-color, 2000-era Heidelberg sheetfed models; seven folders; and two cutters—were slated to be sold on June 24 in what the auctioneer is billing as the “Graphics Auction Event of the Decade.”

For the former workers at Insync Marketing, and those cut loose in the Anderson Litho closure, this is turning out to be one decade they would all just as soon forget.
