Runbeck Election Services Buys 11 Mail Inserters from W+D for 2020 Elections
W+D North America, a provider of vote by mail inserting technology announces the sale of 11 BB700 S2 high-speed inserters for vote-by-mail solutions to Runbeck Election Services of Phoenix, Ariz. According to Jeff Ellington, President of Runbeck, “Our current fleet of BB700 inserters had already enabled us to help numerous states with their expansions into comprehensive vote-by-mail processing. The BB700’s open architecture allows us to adapt to the varied workflow requirements of states and counties throughout the U.S. while maintaining 100% integrity throughout the process. Its ability to easily process a wide range of substrates gives us the flexibility to accommodate the most stringent requirements throughout the country.”
With this new expansion, which includes other important infrastructure additions to Runbeck Election Services’ capacity, the company says it is poised to become the largest vote-by-mail processor in the U.S.
“We are proud and excited to take on such an important responsibility during the upcoming elections,” added Ellington. “Furthermore, the level of personalized service and support we have received from W+D has been a key factor in our continuing relationship with them for election services solutions. Their machines’ reliability, where our first machine is still running 24 hours a day after 8 years, made it an easy long-term decision.”
Andrew Schipke VP Marketing and Strategic Sales for W+D North America, notes “it has been an exciting challenge as our ballot inserting equipment has technically evolved to handle, from both a hardware and software perspective, the integrity requirements demanded by the vote-by-mail ballot market. Arguably, vote by mail is one of the fastest growing segments our industry has seen in a long time, and Runbeck has been a great partner as they continue to preserve such an important American right as well as continue to show the importance of paper and print.”
