February 24, 2023 By PrintAction Staff
Marquis is taking another step towards its Horizon 2025 strategic investment plan, announced in November 2021, with the commissioning of a brand-new Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106 LED UV press at its Montmagny, Que., plant.
This investment of more than $6 million is part of the company’s overall investment plan, which has received financial support from Investissement Québec and the Quebec government. This new equipment will allow Marquis to expand its service offering and double colour book production capacity while reducing its environmental impact and improving printing quality.
“Among the solutions that enable companies to innovate and increase their productivity, automation and the integration of digital technologies are key success factors. The Investissement Québec team is pleased to see the realization of Marquis’ growth projects, which combine innovation, productivity and sustainable development,” said Guy LeBlanc, president and CEO of Investissement Québec.
“The Quebec government supports companies like Marquis Book Printing that are modernizing their facilities to improve efficiency and go green. With this investment, the Montmagny plant will be able to accelerate its growth and maintain its status as a leader in book printing across North America. We are proud to contribute to the development of this local company,” said Mathieu Rivest, MNA for Côte-du-Sud.
The new XL 106 Colour UV LED press speeds up curing time. “Faster curing combined with greater production capacity will provide faster turnaround times for our customers,” said Marquis’ president, Serge Loubier.
