Earl Guinter, sales manager; Darin Tysdal, CFO; Darren Carlson, CEO; Dan Dallum, corporate vice-president; Douglas Mohagen, plant manager; and Rod Franson, technical print specialist.

In a move intended to increase its leadership in the printing market, Carlson Print Group purchases a new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 41-in. eight-colour press with a double coater. The new press will join a Koenig & Bauer Rapida 105 PRO on its production floor in Eden Prairie, Minn.

“We’ve found that Koenig & Bauer has the unique ability to listen to our needs and work with our entire management team to customize a one-off printing press that will allow us to serve our current customers, develop new markets, and grow our organization,” says Darren Carlson, CEO, Carlson Print Group.

Carlson’s new Rapida 106 is a sheetfed offset press with eight colours and two coating units with a colour control system. The Rapida 106 will also be equipped with two modules from Eagles Systems: one for cold foil applications and the other for cast ‘n cure applications.


The new Koenig & Bauer press is custom configured with a package for board, plastic, and lightweight stocks. This configuration allows Carlson to offer to their customers more material options.
