Phipps Dickson Integria Installs 900 XXL
Phipps Dickson Integria has purchased a ROLAND 900XXL press from manroland for its Kirkland plant. The Montreal-based printer says it expects to have the 56-inch press operational in early October.
"Our first encounter with this large format press was at several installations that we had visited in Germany and last year at drupa," says Gaetano DiTrapani, Chief Operating Officer at PDI. “We’ve also had the opportunity to view it at another printer in Canada and at manroland’s Print Technology Center in Chicago." DiTrapani also listed two reasons why PDI chose the 900XXL: "First, we believe it will more efficiently accommodate our existing work in the publishing field that is currently produced on 40-inch presses. Second, it will provide us access to a very specific market within the large format work sector."
PDI recently consolidated its plants in LaSalle and St. Laurent into one facility in Kirkland, Quebec. The 6-colour 900XXL is the PDI's first manroland purchase. Phipps Dickson and Integria merged in February 2007, forming one of the larger printers in Quebec. In December, it acquired and reopened Grafikom's Sherbrooke plant, now known as PDI-Graphica.
