Annex Business Media, on the heels of acquiring Glacier Media assets in late January, has purchased a 40-inch, 8-colour Komori LS perfecting press, which is scheduled to be operational in the company’s Simcoe, Ontario, facility this summer.

The press, purchased through KOMCAN Inc., comes equipped with a range of automation features, including: APC fully automatic plate changers, PDC-SII close-looped colour control, AMR automatic make-ready, fully automatic wash-up systems and KHS Komori high-speed inking. Operating from Georgetown, Ontario, KOMCAN is the authorized dealer for Komori equipment sales, parts and service in Ontario and Western Canada.

“This purchase means growth for our print division,” said Lance Hill (right), Director of Plant Operations at Annex Business Media. “We will double our productivity, improve quality, and lower our make-ready and waste through automation.”

Replacing an existing 29-inch, 8-colour press, the 40-inch Komori perfector will be a key driver of Annex’ continuing expansion in business-to-business publishing. In January, Annex, which owns PrintAction magazine, teamed up with Newcom Business Media to acquire 67 trade-publishing brands from Vancouver-based Glacier Media Inc., a deal worth $19.65 million.

Annex immediately took control of 15 Glacier Media properties, adding to its existing stable of 40 business-to-business brands, the vast majority of which continue to publish a magazine, in addition to their online, digital and event components.

Annex Business Media is Canada's largest business-to-business media company with over 55 properties. This total does not include the B2B media assets currently held in a joint venture between Annex and Newcom, called Annex Newcom Limited Partnership.
