Heidelberg Donates Stitcher to PIA
KENNESAW, GA—Heidelberg USA has donated a Stitchmaster ST 350 saddlestitcher to Printing Industries of America (PIA) for use in the organization’s research and training facility in Sewickley, PA. Installation is scheduled to start in June.
The new saddlestitcher is the latest addition to the wealth of Heidelberg equipment and software previously donated to PIA for the purpose of industry education and research. The association currently has a Speedmaster SM 102 P sheetfed press, Printmaster QM 46 press, Polar 137 XT cutter, Stahl B-26 folder and a Prinect 3.5 workflow solution.
“Appropriate training and education are vital to any company’s success,” said Mark Bohan, vice president, technology and research for PIA. “Heidelberg understands this, and its generous donation of an ST 350 saddlestitcher will go a long way toward ensuring that industry professionals who come to Printing Industries of America to improve their skills continue to receive the highest quality training and education on state-of-the-art equipment at our world-class facility.”
