Thoroughbred Printing Bounces Back with New Heidelberg Installations After Fire
Thoroughbred Printing in Lexington, KY, recently installed a three-station, 30˝ USA B30 Stahlfolder to replace a Stahlfolder lost to fire in the spring of this year. The new folder is equipped with four combination buckle plates per station, gatefold unit, and rotary scoring and perfing capability.
“We lost 40 percent of our building, 60 percent of our pressroom, and a piece of our prepress department in the fire,” said Barry Henry, owner. “We were fortunate to be able to outsource work to our sister company, Advertiser Printers in northern Kentucky, while we rebuilt.” (The company has another sibling facility, Allied Printing, in Hamilton, OH.)
In the wake of the fire, Thoroughbred has equipped its new prepress operation with Heidelberg’s Prinect Prepress Manager workflow, and now promotes web-based file uploading and remote proofing via Prinect Remote Access. The company’s pressroom hosts a 40˝ Speedmaster 102S six-color press and a 40” Speedmaster 102ZP 2-color machine, as well as a 12x18˝ Heidelberg “windmill” letterpress.
In addition to the new Stahlfolder, whose flexibility and fast makeready have earned the praise of Thoroughbred’s operators, the company’s full-service bindery also hosts 20˝ and 26˝ Stahlfolders, as well as a 42˝ Polar cutting system.
In business since 1970, Thoroughbred Printing describes itself as a general commercial printer serving clients throughout the Southeast, including universities and their affiliated sports programs. The company employs 20 full- and part-time staff.
