After a decade of sustained growth, Premier Packaging, a subsidiary of DSS, Inc., recently relocated its plant of 30 years in Victor, N.Y., to a brand new 105,000-sf facility in West Henrietta, N.Y. The company, looking to optimize growth and diversify its customer base, recently installed a new hybrid Speedmaster XL 106-7+L (equipped for both UV and conventional production) in addition to a refurbished Speedmaster CD 102-5 – both from Heidelberg.

“One of things that attracted us to the XL is that we felt we could get up to colour quicker and with less waste, enabling us to better service our customers,” said Bruce Stratton, vice-president of operations. Additionally, the new press’s advanced technology has attracted new and experienced talent to Premier Packaging – crucial in today’s tough labour market. “Everyone has been excited to have the new equipment here,” said Stratton. “We just hired two new employees that were enticed to work for us just because they wanted to work on the XL.”
