We are pleased to announce the purchase of a new Mark Andy Performance Series P5 press for our Bowling Green, KY facility adding significantly to the capabilities, efficiencies and capacity to support our continued pressure sensitive label business growth.

The flexographic press is capable of printing in up to 10 colors and is configured for high quality combination printing. The press also features servo driven (gearless) technology for fast changeovers.

“This press acquisition will ensure that we are able to meet the growing demands of our pressure sensitive label customers”, commented Jeff Brezek, President and CEO, Fort Dearborn Company. “We are committed to reinvestment and this press will augment and complement our flexographic printing platform to better service our customers”, added Jeff.
