Johnson & Quin is expanding its capacity to produce full color personalized direct mail packages by adding additional color printing, folding, and inserting equipment at its facility in Niles, Ill., north of Chicago. Johnson & Quin’s clients are seeing increased response when mailing packages with more personalization in color and, as a result, are mailing increased volumes. Based on this higher demand, the company is adding MBO High-Speed Folding Systems, Pitney Bowes Mailstream Direct Ultra-High-Speed Inserters and MCS Condor Color Inkjet Envelope Printers. “With over 40 years of direct mail production experience, Johnson & Quin continues to implement new technology and increase capacity to provide clients with high quality direct mail production to make their marketing programs successful,” said Andrew Henkel, Vice President & Principal at Johnson & Quin. “The addition of this new equipment in combination with high-speed color inkjet presses allow us to produce high volume direct mail programs with full color personalization in quick time frames.”
