The state of the art facility features a Plate Mounting department, Flexographic Presses, Laminators, Micro Perf Machines, Slitting Rewinders and a Quality Lab. From an environmental standpoint, the plant collects and eliminates solvent vapor generated while printing, and also recycles and reuses over 700 drums of spent liquid solvent per year that would otherwise be disposed of.
