Impressions Alliance Adds Presstek Press
Presstek, Inc., a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, reports that Canadian printing company Impressions Alliance 9000 has successfully expanded its short run printing capability by adding a Presstek 52DI-AC digital offset press.
Located in Amqui in the Canadian province of Quebec, Impressions Alliance 9000 is a nonprofit company whose mission is to provide jobs for people living with a disability. The company was founded in the early 1980s as a refurbisher of auto parts before making a strategic shift into the printing business a decade later, at which time it was offering finishing and book binding services. In 1997, Impressions Alliance 9000 acquired two local printing companies and became a fully integrated printing business.
"Today, Impressions Alliance 9000 produces calendars, diaries and marketing collateral for a range of customers including large financial institutions in Quebec," said Stéphane Jean, Impressions Alliance 9000's general manager. "The company has annual revenues of CAD 4.5 million with 203 employees, 70% of whom are living with a disability. Adding the Presstek 52DI-AC to our production platform better aligns us with today's market requirements and ensures that we are well-positioned to continue fulfilling our mission."
