CLINTON TWP., MI—A coldset printer for 20 years, Macomb Printing has installed a five-color Solna heatset web press. According to Ron Bracali, Macomb president, the move into heatset allows the unionized printer to offer more products to existing clients while expanding its customer base. Other acquisitions include a five-color Heidelberg SM 52 sheetfed press and an eight-pocket Muller Martini saddle stitcher. The company produces contract books, catalogs, tabloids, flyers, newsletters and postcards.
