Advanced Technology of Six Color Lithrone GL40 Supports Imperial’s Continued Expansion

Schaumburg, IL - April 19, 2017 -

Komori America  announced that  Imperial Communications, a  high-quality print and technology services provider currently focused in POP/POS, commercial print and packaging, digital and fulfillment  markets,  recently purchased its fourth  Komori press, a six  color Lithrone G40  (GL640).    Moving from Milwaukee to a larger facility in New Berlin, Wisconsin eight years ago, the press was added  to provide  the additional  capacity  needed to  support the company’s continued growth.  Imperial  Communications is  a G7 Master Printer focused on the  food, beverage, retail and packaging industries, all demanding high-quality output

The GL640  offers  Imperial  advanced technology that  takes  Imperial Communications  to the next level  in quality and throughput. Key considerations in the purchase included  the GL640’s ability to  produce stunning, dense  color  on difficult stocks, such as  uncoated or matte. Additionally, the  GL640  delivers  on the speed and productivity that supports Imperial Communications continued competitive edge. “We have a wonderful long-term relationship with Komori. Over the years, Komori has been there to help us as we continue to grow,” said Jason Stormowski,  president and  principal  owner of  Imperial Communications. “The technology on this new press is incredible. From the inking system to how the plates are hung to the ability to print on very heavy stocks, the GL40 is generations beyond anything on the market today. We did our due diligence  before we decided to invest in this press, looking at competitive  equipment.  We kept coming back to the fact that  it made the most sense to  continue  to partner with Komori. Komori simply had a better package for our needs.”

 ith a variety of automatic devices and systems  integrated into the GL640, such as the KHS-AI
integrated control system and fully  automatic plate-changing (APC), the company plans to enjoy a  more efficient,  streamlined  production  process;  cutting  its makeready to  minutes. Reliability also  played heavily into the decision to upgrade to the GL640.  Imperial  Communications reports  very low maintenance was required on its previous Komori equipment.

“Imperial Communications’ success can be attributed to its wonderful employees who take their job
seriously and care about the needs of the customer,” said  Mark Hopkins, VP Sales,  Komori  America. “The GL640 will only add to the customer experience with its  ability to deliver a high-quality product in an environment that  requires fast turnaround. We are very proud of our relationship with Imperial Communications and look forward to continuing to support their needs now and in the future.”
