Sierra installs a 40" Komori Press making them more competitive in the market place.
Press Release Description
Sierra Office Supply & Printing, a leading supplier of digital and offset printing solutions to all major industries, today announced that they have installed a new Komori 40” four-color press. Sierra was founded in 1981 and operates four locations in Northern California.
“We had an older 28” five-color Sakurai press that needed to be rebuilt,” said Chris Mulligan, our Print General Manager. “That’s what started us looking for a new solution. We needed a press that could cost-effectively address the larger runs that were coming in the door.”
Sierra acquired a pre-owned 40” Komori four-color, offset press to replace the older press. The shop also operates another 28” Sakurai five-color press, a 24” two-color Sakurai press, a 40” two-color Heidelberg press, a 12”x18” digital DI four-color press, two two-color Heidelberg QM presses, and two Super Jet envelope presses. In addition to the offset printing, Sierra has one of the largest digital departments in Northern California.
The new addition of the Komori press will provide shorter make-ready times due to closed-loop color control and automated plate changes and will run 16,000 impressions-per-hour, making Sierra more competitive in the marketplace. “Now about 35% of our work can be switched to the larger 40” press, which provides faster turnaround times and increased quality.”
Sierra has made great progress in meeting the needs of the marketplace. They have diversified into the office supply, contract furniture, signage, and ad specialities markets. Sierra has experienced growth in every department continuously over the years and looks forward to expanding each year to help better serve their customers.
