PRINTING INDUSTRY presidents and CEOs often reflect on the skill sets that they acquired while playing sports in high school or college—teamwork, leadership, discipline, tenacity—and how those traits apply to their success in the business world. But few executives have hailed their sports to the degree that Don Chew, president of K&D Graphics in Orange, CA, has tipped his cap to the game of badminton.
K&D Graphics welcomed customers during an open house recently to view its new 12-color, 41? Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105 which, at 120 feet in length, is one of the world’s longest sheetfed printing presses. The 150-ton press is capable of perfecting six colors on both sides of the sheet in a single pass. It also features double in-line aqueous/UV coaters and a Cutstar roll feeder.
