Standard Register Completes $10 Million Upgrade to its Digital Printing CentersOctober 27, 2010
Standard Register, a leading provider of document services, has completed the majority of a $10 million refresh of its national network of digital printing centers, aimed at heightening customer service, expanding overall capabilities and improving environmental sustainability.
Since January, the company has transformed five of its regional print centers into "super centers," equipping each with high-speed, high-quality color printing, and in-line finishing and bindery capabilities. In addition, the regional centers and Standard Register's three largest satellite facilities were upgraded with the latest high-speed, monochrome printing equipment as well as wide-format printers.
Advances in production have been complemented by new digital workflow technology. Rolled out across Standard Register's entire digital print network, the software allows Web-based orders to move from customer desktops through the production process with minimal intervention. It automatically routes jobs to the printer center most convenient to the customer, which dramatically improves fulfillment times and reduces freight costs for the customer.
"This investment creates a strategic advantage for us and significant value for our customers," said Joe Klenke, vice president of manufacturing for Standard Register. "The marketplace is changing. Customers want and expect high quality, customized printed materials, yet they want to reduce their time to market. We've aligned our resources and enhanced our capabilities to meet those expectations."
