Presstek for Impressions Alliance 9000

January 03, 2011

Impressions Alliance 9000, based in Amqui, Quebec, announced the installation of a Presstek 52DI-AC press, which the company actually placed onto its production floor back in March 2010.  

Impressions Alliance 9000 is self-described as a non-profit company with a mission to provide jobs for people living with a disability. The company was originally founded back in the early-1980s to refurbish auto parts. A decade later, the company moved into the printing industry, which included purchasing two shops in 1997.

“A major consideration in our selection of the Presstek 52DI-AC was its chemistry-free on-press platemaking,” said Stéphane Jean, General Manager. “This was a major advantage for Presstek, since our prepress department was not equipped to produce waterless offset plates and we did not want to invest in an additional platemaker.”

Alliance 9000 generated revenues of $4.5 million last year, producing calendars, diaries and marketing collateral for a range of customers, including large financial institutions. Today, around 70 percent of the company’s 203 employees are living with a disability.
