According to company President Bill Seidl, the plant expansion will result in shorter turnaround times due to less material movement and more intelligent flow of work between equipment. "We are excited at the efficiencies this expansion will provide us," Seidl remarks. "Our customers will experience shorter turnaround times for many of their projects, and our employees will spend less time and energy moving material. It is a true win-win for both Seidl's Bindery and our customers."
