We’ve been hesitant to come right out and talk about this — call it “fear of the jinx” — but we’ve recently purchased a new press and it’s scheduled for delivery tomorrow (Tuesday 6/29). The electrician is coming by today to drop some new power lines and reconfigure some outlets. Then on Wednesday the techs will be out to assemble the press, followed by two days of software installation and user training on Thursday and Friday and then by the weekend we should be running at full speed.
Our new press will more than double our capacity as it is that much faster and that much more durable than our two existing presses — both of which will remain in service. So this is actually both an upgrade and an expansion. This new press should also allow us to add some new product lines and to expand a couple of others by adding more paper stock options. We’ll post details on those as soon as we’ve got more information.
In the meantime, please bear with us this week as we’ll all be pulling double duty in trying to keep the queue moving while also getting the new equipment in place and learning how to use it.
