JOHNSBYRNE CO. — CREATING CUSTOMER PARTNERSHIPS
The JohnsByrne Co. boasts 225,000 square feet of manufacturing facilities. All manufacturing is produced in a computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) environment connecting estimating through manufacturing and billing. Capabilities include prepress, printing and bindery. The all-Komori pressroom is equipped with both conventional and interdeck UV printing capability, as well as perfecting. This offers customers a wider variety of print configurations for maximum creative flexibility.
The subsidiary company, Graphic Technologies, is one of the largest finishing operations in the country touting 14 Bobst presses; eight automated diecutters, six foil stampers, seven folding machines and four folder/gluers, as well as a full-time pack-out and kitting service.
Being a leader on the technology front is nothing new for JohnsByrne. It was one of the first in the Midwest to adopt direct-to-plate technology, and has been lauded as an industry model for CIM. But technology is not always software you buy in a box, Corey Gustafson observes. “Our most recent acquisition (Graphic Converting) was also a purchase of technology,” the company president maintains.
Following the moves it has made and relationships it has forged, JohnsByrne is eager to continue expanding and is ready to explore new markets.
“We are at the point now where we’re digesting the acquisitions that we have made, and we have added some management talent and depth through these purchases,” Jack Gustafson concludes. “We are looking to continually grow and strengthen our business. JohnsByrne wants to be considered a world-class business partner, providing superior value to our clients.”
