Rapidly-Expanding All Out, Inc. Orders Second Full U. KBA 56-inch Rapida 142 Large Format Press
WOODRIDGE, IL—08/30.07—KBA North America, a leading sheetfed offset press manufacturer based in Williston, Vt., is honored to be producing a new press for All Out, Inc., a commercial printer. The shop has experienced rapid growth after seizing the large format market with the installation of a KBA Rapida 142 56-inch five-color press in July 2006. The new press, which will have six color units plus interdeck UV capabilities, will be installed in All Out, Inc.’s newly-expanded 37,000 sq. ft. facility in December 2007.
“We have experienced significant growth since the installation of our first KBA press,” says J.B. Capuano, All Out Inc.’s president. “We need a second press to keep up with demand. We would also like to branch out into new market segments by using different substrates, such as plastics and foils, so we equipped the new press with interdeck UV capabilities. Our plan is to move into the specialty print market, printing on foil stocks, styrenes, biodegradable plastics, and other materials. This will allow our sales force to fearlessly meet just about any print and finishing need our customers may have.”
Currently, All Out, Inc. is running its KBA press 24-hours a day 7 days a week to provide its nationwide customers with all types of commercial, packaging and point-of-purchase work. By having the KBA large format press, All Out, Inc. will be able to effectively provide its customers with more options than ever before.
“We have formed a tremendous partnership with KBA,” says Capuano. “We’re producing fantastic quality on our Rapida 142 and we’re growing tremendously. KBA’s large format press is the best offered in the industry and by installing it, we’ll be able to grow even more.”
Taking advantage of KBA’s superb seminars
To ready themselves to produce specialty work, such as utilizing lenticular, plastic cards, and other substrates, All Out, Inc. has sent its employees to specific seminars at KBA headquarters in Vermont to collaborate with other industry professionals. For example, All Out, Inc. employees learned advanced techniques for working with lenticular. Lenticular printing is a special technique that involves printing an image on the back side of lenticular plastic, allowing the eye to simultaneously view alternating sections of multiple images to give the impression of 3-D, flip, or motion.
