Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of printing solutions, today announced that family-owned Standard Press, located in Atlanta since 1932, has recently installed a 40-inch, six-color Komori Lithrone press with coater (GL640C) equipped with Komori’s proprietary H-UV™ system. Standard Press services a variety of clients that include Fortune 500 companies, universities and advertising agencies. The full-service commercial printer has built a strong reputation on providing both high quality work as well as exceptional customer service. The addition of the new Komori press underscores Standard Press’ commitment to answer customer requirements for dramatic special effects as well as cross platform compatibility with H-UV and conventional inks and coatings.
Colour Five is understood to be entering a creditors’ voluntary liquidation, while the current trading status of the specialist print business is unclear.
According to a source close to the situation, the Perivale, west London-based firm sent a notice to clients and suppliers yesterday (11 June) stating its intention to appoint liquidators. It is understood that a liquidator will be appointed by 18 June.
On 16 May, Colour Five posted a notice of intent to appoint administrators. At that time, Marlow-based solicitor Gabbitas Robins was overseeing the case, while Gary Lee and Paul Stanley of Begbies Traynor’s Manchester office were named as nominated administrators.
PrintWeek’s source indicated that Colour Five’s misfortune was likely a result of “lack of work” due to the niche nature of its high-end UV printing. The company frequently worked on special edition magazine covers.
