One of California’s largest privately held printing companies, with more than 250 employees, Dome, by the end of its 2017 fourth quarter, aimed to complete the consolidation of its five facilities. The company was moving all of its assets into a newly renovated 320,000-square-foot facility in Sacramento’s McClellan Park.
In conjunction with the new facility, Dome began a new partnership with Koenig & Bauer to install two sheetfed presses, including a 41-inch, 10-colour Rapida 106 UV perfector and an 81-inch Rapida 205 large-format offset press.
The company explains its new Koenig & Bauer presses will add creative options for the display designers who are employed by Dome’s retail clients. This includes offering an enlarged litho format of 81 inches and the greater reproduction versatility afforded by a 10-colour press. Dome provides retail in-store media, direct mail and general commercial print, and operates ArrowClick E-Commerce and Custom Fulfillment services.
“With these purchases, Dome is taking a bold step into the world of super-large format and super-speed sheetfed offset printing,” said Misha Pavlov, Dome’s President. “The [Koenig & Bauer] Rapida 205’s XXL sheet size with 5-colour UV printing, on substrates up to 48 points at 9,000 sheets per hour, is the perfect addition to our business.
“This is a game-changer for Northern California, Oregon, Northern Nevada and Washington,” continued Pavlov, “enabling Dome to serve customers and prospects in these markets better than anyone, as this is the only 81-inch press in the area.”
The large-format Rapida 106 is a 10-colour, double coater, full-interdeck UV press. Dome explains the press will bring increased quality, efficiency and greater productivity while offering high-end applications previously not offered in-house. The presses are scheduled to to be up and running by the end of 2017.
