Thysse Boosts Capabilities with New HP PageWide Advantage 2200 Web Press
Thysse, a full-service brand experience provider that offers commercial printing, is excited to announce its recent acquisition of the HP PageWide Advantage 2200. The investment reaffirms Thysse’s steadfast commitment to the core values that have allowed it to grow over the past eight decades; offering exceptional service and project outcomes, efficiently.
The company was founded in 1941 by John Thysse, and began as a letterpress printer in Madison, Wisconsin. Since its inception, continuous innovation and embracing new technology have allowed Thysse to meet the evolving needs of its clients.
Today, the third-generation owner and CEO, Jason Thysse, is accelerating the company’s growth trajectory by doubling down on investments aimed at elevating capacity, efficiency, and capabilities across the entire portfolio of services. The scope spans culture, structure, training, process, and technology, all aimed at adding tangible customer value.
On Thysse’s recent adoption of the HP PageWide Advantage 2200, Jason offered,
"We don’t acquire new technology right when it comes out. We carefully vet additions to our floor to make sure the innovation promise and reliability are there, which is certainly the case with this press. Working closely with HP, we implemented the HP PageWide Advantage 2200 seamlessly into our workflows, allowing us to offer more to our current clients and prospects- at the high standards they demand."
Operationally, shorter turnaround times, most notably during peak periods, mean more customer jobs fit in their production schedule, providing invaluable service and competitive advantages. Additionally, the company has been able to shift 30-50 labor hours to other workflows each week with the addition of the HP PageWide Advantage 2200. As noted by Thysse’ s VP of Sales & Marketing, Kevin Kouba,
"The added speed and efficiency give our customers better scheduling flexibility and enable us to deliver on last-minute, time-sensitive requests, even when that request is prefaced with, 'I know this probably isn’t possible, but….' Ultimately, being able to deliver in those situations is phenomenal."
Additionally, the new HP PageWide Advantage 2200 web press has enabled Thysse to advance its sustainability initiatives. The additions reduce per-piece energy consumption and waste. Beyond the equipment, Thysse’s new facility (2020) tripled overall efficiency by optimizing storage and production floor plans and workflows. The facility also produces up to 100% of its energy using a rooftop solar array. Thysse’s President, Dean Bott, had this to say about the sustainability mission,
"The HP PageWide Advantage 2200 decision aligned well with the sustainability goals we’ve made so much progress against. The benefits range from meeting rising demand for environmentally responsible partners to internal efficiency and cost savings- and beyond. …The right mix of technology makes a business case for sustainability, which is truly exciting to those, like us, who want to see widespread adoption."
“Our partners at Thysse have been great to work with, and it has been wonderful to watch their business transform. And even more with this press that has a versatility of printing a diverse range of applications like full color Posters, 14 points post card, 800 feet per minute black and full color variable jobs at up to 500 feet per minute” stated Vahaaj Khan, AMS HP PageWide Sales Manager at HP. “They are very eager to deliver the best of the best to their customers, and we’re pleased that we’ve been able to support them on this journey with the newest addition of the HP PageWide Advantage 2200 Web press alongside other HP solutions, including Hunkler Gen8, Hunkeler Cut and Fold, H and the B Aqueous Coater”, he added.
This addition demonstrates that Thysse is deeply committed to helping customers drive business value and accurately represent their brand, as well as the company’s passion for boosting its capabilities and creating the most innovative and comprehensive process. By investing in cutting-edge print technologies and workflow improvements, the company continues to establish itself as a major competitor in the print industry.
