Your Ticket to Automated Success
It is no secret that the most successful companies are employing automation to cut costs and increase efficiency. You can read about it, and you can listen to presentations on it. But how would you like to actually experience it?
The next Automation Solutions Network Meeting features a tour of Creel Printing, which recently acquired another industry leader, Digital Lizard. You have probably heard of these companies, but in case you haven’t, we’ll give you some of the reasons this is a plant tour you don’t want to miss.
Full-Service, Award-Winning Facility
Creel has a 300,000-square-foot facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, operating 24/7 and providing a full range of services, including pre-media, printing, binding, mailing, distribution, and fulfillment. For more than 50 years they have been earning industry accolades, producing high-quality products, and providing outstanding customer service. The company earned their eighth Gold Ink Award in 2012 for their meticulous craftsmanship in addition to a slew of other printing awards.
Creel expanded their capabilities after acquiring Digital Lizard in 2011. Already one of the top digital printing companies in the U.S., Digital Lizard brought their own advancements, including processing protocols to manufacture, finish, and ship on the same day; state-of-the-art HP Indigo presses; a full-service bindery; and pre-negotiated discount shipping rates. Digital Lizard also develops automated Web-to-print storefronts to improve ordering, workflow, and reporting, allowing customers to deploy their own portals or improve the capabilities and return on investment of those that exist.
