Imagine! Print Solutions Adds Seventh KBA Rapida 105 Press
DALLAS—July 9, 2013—KBA North America announces that Imagine! Print Solutions, North America's prominent independent commercial and packaging printing company headquartered in Minneapolis, has installed a new six-color, 41˝ KBA Rapida 105 press with UV. This is the seventh KBA press installed at Imagine! Print Solutions. The installation took place in January 2013.
"We are continually taking the pulse of our customers and asking them how we are doing," stated Bob Lothenbach, founder and president of Imagine! Print Solutions. "Our customers look to us to provide solutions and creative thinking to help sell their products. Ultimately that is what we do as a company. When we began to receive many new UV projects in packaging, we decided to invest in a new press."
According to Lothenbach, the company wanted to to add capacity for several customer requirements. "Our print buyer customers, like everyone else, are looking for higher quality and faster throughput. We can offer these things in combination—not one or the other—with the new KBA press."
Imagine! Print Solutions has been a long-time KBA partner with the purchase of the first six-color, 81˝ Rapida 205 press in North America. Since then, it has added several additional KBA presses to maintain the quality level and provide the company with the best possible performance from its litho department. "KBA has been our press partner for several years," added Lothenbach. "Their commitment to our market and sheet size requirements is what sets KBA apart from its competition."
Lothenbach believes that the new KBA press fits perfectly into the overall expectations of Imagine!’s print buying customers that require the firm to provide quality products with a high degree of complexity. “It is hard to point out one feature or benefit that sets us apart. It is the complete Imagine! experience,” he adds. The newly-installed six-color, 41˝ KBA Rapida 105 press at Imagine! Print Solutions joins six more KBA Rapida presses: a giant six-color, 81˝ Rapida 205, a four-color, 64˝ Rapida 162, a seven-color, 64˝ Rapida 162, two six-color, 41˝ Rapida 105 UV presses, and one five-color, 41˝ Rapida 105 press.
