Foxfire expand capacity with new 900 XXL

Foxfire, the US printer which appeared on the cover of September's Printing Impressions magazine, recently took delivery of their new ROLAND 900 XXL machine. The retail specialist located in Newark, Delaware, USA is enjoying an economic expansion boom, fuelled by an $6.5 million capital investment that includes the new XXL press from Manroland as well as creating 38 new jobs.

The Foxfire ROLAND 900 XXL with coating unit and extended delivery in format 8 was delivered with a suite of QuickChange optimization features and fully Automatic Plate Loading. Exclusive okBalance® and Low Coverage Stabilization software will enhance quality and provide efficient performance for the life of the machine. TelePresence, the Manroland remote diagnostic and maintenance software, provides a coordinated maintenance schedule and a quicker service response should it be required.

Fritz Light, Senior Vice President: “We were considering a different press manufacturer, but once we looked at Manroland and the 73” press we decided this was a better investment for our future. We were eager to get the new Manroland press into production to take advantage of the new automation and production capabilities that this new equipment will provide.” Manroland Managing Director, Michael Mugavero says:“This new super large format order builds upon the recent success the new Manroland has achieved. With our new and used press sales, PrintValue® advances via FutureProof upgrades and major relocation projects for customers’ existing presses, we believe the North American market now sees a reinvigorated Manroland that is perfectly positioned to service our customers. Let us show you how the Manroland Sheetfed Team can assist you FutureProof your business and achieve your goals.”
