NEWARK, DE—Sept. 25, 2012—After a successful drupa, manroland Inc is pleased to announce that Foxfire Printing and Packaging has made the decision to expand its existing printing capacity with a new 73" manroland sheetfed R900 XXL five-color press with coater.
Foxfire, which is featured on the cover of the September 2012 edition of Printing Impressions magazine, is looking forward to delivery of the new R900 XXL machine.
