Simpson Print Installs HP Indigo
Martyn Johanns, President and co-owner of Simpson Print, installed an HP Indigo 5500 press to continue the expansion of the company’s Bloomington, Ontario-based facility.
After running a sheetfed operation for several years, Martyn Johanns’ father, Martin, entered the screen-printing sector by purchasing Simpson Print in 1988. Simpson Print, founded in 1963, had been producing retail signage, in-store displays and retail marketing kits to clients in the food & beverage and industrial sectors.
In 1996, Martin Johanns then repurchased the company he founded, Johanns Graphics, and integrated both operations in a new 50,000-square-foot facility. Martyn Johanns then became part owner of the company in 2003.
“Our clients are looking for special print projects,” said Sam Mueller, General Manager of Simpson Print. “With the HP Indigo 5500 Digital Press we can offer white inks and print up to 18pt card stocks as well as various plastics including styrenes, rigid vinyls, and polycarbonates – something many of our competitors can’t offer.”
