Fenton Press--Web Wonders
"The press holds all its settings, even when running at 50,000 impressions—the press' top speed. If a plate needs to be changed during a run, when the press is restarted, the color is right there," says Ficken-scher, who makes special note that the sheetfed jobs can be switched onto webs, since the printing quality of the 6611 is "superior to other webs in the market and absolutely comparable to sheetfed."
To satisfy the growing demand of customers such as Rand McNally, USA Bank and Draft Worldwide, as well as the high-end agency business, Fenton Press must provide a top quality product, backed with exceptional service. To meet these requirements, Fenton decided to buy a second Zirkon 6611.
"Consistent speed at 50,000 has allowed the Zirkon to deliver 75,000 impressions by operating three shifts, 24 hours a day," explains Tobiason. "Besides the quality of the press and its performance, the type of support we get from Hantish is superb. More than a supplier, Hantish is a partner...attentive to our needs and expectations."
Fenton ranks in the top 300 printers and has pushed its business to $25 million, with plans to reach $30 million by the year 2000. Tobiason says, that with a partner like Hantish International and the Zirkon 6611, Fenton is already on its way.
