Mossberg & Company Inc., a fixture in the region’s printing industry since 1930, has bolstered its capabilities with the recent installation of a Heidelberg XL-106 8-color press. The 41-inch perfecting press, which increases the number of impressions per hour by 3,000, replaces two of Mossberg’s presses while increasing productivity and reducing overall setup time. It also frees up space in Mossberg’s manufacturing facility, allowing for future technological advances. Mossberg has served the printing, distribution and marketing needs of customers from an array of industries, including health care, consumer products, higher education, retail, tourism and craft beverages. The company employs approximately 110 professionals and has sales representation in South Bend, Indianapolis and Michigan.
LSC Communications announced today that its Book Division, the largest book producer in the United States, will now operate as Lakeside Book Company. In addition to book manufacturing, Lakeside provides distribution, sales and marketing services, as well as IP and brand protection technology for book publishers and others requiring premium quality print and distribution-related services. The new name of the Book Division as Lakeside Book Company is rooted in the company’s rich history and marks a renewed commitment to providing best-in-class printing and fulfillment services.
“Lakeside Book Company represents the best of our past and the opportunity to build on that foundation and write our future as the go-to book producer for publishers large and small. The Lakeside name is a nod to our roots and symbolic of the trust our company has earned to help stories of all kinds be shared. We have taken the opportunity to revisit our company values and align ourselves around the true purpose of our business: crafting books for readers and serving our publishing customers,” says Dave McCree, CEO of Lakeside Book Company.
Lakeside Book Company is a nod to Lakeside Classics, the longest running, continuous series of books in America and the only work published under the Lakeside Press imprint. A tradition that dates back to 1903 when T.E. Donnelley, son of the founder and president of RR Donnelley & Sons Company, began giving special edition books as gifts each holiday season. The Lakeside name is synonymous with tradition and evokes the past while recognizing the evolution of the books division from part of RR Donnelley to LSC Communications and now as Lakeside Book Company.
