– Trust Franklin Press to install first Meteor DP8700 XL in Pittsburgh
MGI Digital Graphic Technology is pleased to announce the first installation of a Meteor DP8700 XL in Pittsburgh, PA.
Trust Franklin Press offers the latest technology to a quality-driven, demanding customer base in advertising and design firms where precision color and alignment are critical. In order to expand their current offerings and improve overall digital print capabilities, the 106 year-old Trust Franklin Press began looking for opportunities to increase their range of abilities.
Graphco, a MGI certified Elite Dealer, worked closely over the last year with Trust Franklin Press in successfully expanding their state-of-the-art print production facility. With Graphco’s expertise, Trust Franklin Press invested in the first MGI Meteor digital press in the tri-state area.
Tom Taylor, Chief Operating Officer of Trust Franklin Press, states, “I was impressed with the ongoing demonstrations from the Graphco Sales and Technical team. Allie Harold and John Arnold were dedicated to showing the Meteor’s consistent performance capabilities.”
“We really put the Meteor through the paces during our sessions at the Graphco Demonstration Center and they were able to prove that the MGI Meteor would meet our needs,” Continued Taylor. “Our confidence in Graphco and the relationship that we’ve built over the years is certainly an important part of the trust factor and decision-making process.”
The MGI Meteor DP8700 XL joins a Sakurai 475SD-C 6-up offset press, Horizon StitchLiner 5500 saddle-stitcher, Horizon 566 automated paper folder, among others, that enhance and compliment this ultra-sophisticated print production facility.
