The new Page Wide web press installations at BR complement the company's offset print
BR Printers of the USA has acquired and installed two HP PageWide Web Press T240 HDs, installed at BR San Jose and BR Kentucky. The PageWide presses are said to raise the standard of quality and production volume for a variety of the company’s book and commercial print lanes.
BR Printers’ first HP press installation was an HP T230 at its site in San Jose, California. Since then, its digital capacity has significantly grown with the addition of three HP T240 presses.
David Gall, vice president of BR West and chief strategy officer of BR Printers, said that the goal for these installations ‘was to create a unified, connected solution that complements offset facilities, expedites production and delivers high quality prints. Since purchasing our new HP digital presses, we’ve been able to exceed these priorities.’
Speaking about the latest additions, Adam DeMaestri, CEO and president of BR Printers stated, ‘The continued investment into HP PageWide web presses is creating new possibilities for our clients through high-volume and high-quality digital printing, resulting in greater ROI for their print projects. Our digital print portfolio has been significantly strengthened with the addition of these presses, demonstrating our dedication to making infrastructure investments in the latest technologies. Our diverse customer base will reap the benefits of these investments, as they enable BR to provide cutting-edge digital solutions to meet our client’s growing needs.’
Greg Fredwest, plant manager, at BR Printers, commented, ‘With these digital print additions, we’ve had the opportunity to be more nimble, more innovative, and more resilient in this fast-paced, competitive environment.’ These installations will support sustainability efforts at BR; the T240 HD comes equipped with energy-efficient features such as automatic shut-off, power-saving modes and uses water-based inks.
