Producing work for some of Canada’s most notable brands, Proprint, a self-described “very small, big company” has flown under the radar as one of Canada’s most proficient print providers throughout much of its 30-year history. But over the last decade of building up its in-store retail display and folding carton business, the company is looking to move to the next level of long-run folding carton production. The Scarborough, Ont.-based company, recently installed a new Speedmaster CX 104-6+L from Heidelberg to complement its current six-colour Speedmaster CD 102.

Previously equipped with only one offset press, Proprint shied away from what it deemed “longer” run folding carton jobs that could monopolize time on press. “We like to be able to react on a dime for our customers,” said Richard Krakower, CEO of Proprint. The company’s average turnaround time from receiving a print-ready file to live production on press is usually only 24 hours. Wanting to maintain this exceptional speed-to-market while doubling its offset print capacity, Proprint completed installation of a six-colour Speedmaster CX 104 earlier this year. Now, according to Krakower, with the new CX 104, “If we get a run that’s 100,000 or 200,000 sheets, we’ll be able to accommodate the job without interrupting our core business.”
