Allen Press Acquires Industry Leading H&B ExcelCoat ZR30 Coater

Lawrence, Kan. – October 18, 2018 – Allen Press, Inc. is excited to announce the purchase of an ExcelCoat ZR30 manufactured by Harris & Bruno International. The ExcelCoat ZR30 greatly expands in-house specialty coating capabilities, allowing Allen Press to produce top-quality products with even more efficiency.

“We decided on H&B because they have the absolute best coaters in our industry, with the newest technology,” said Allen Press CEO Randy Radosevich. “We want to offer superior full-service printing to our customers and the ExcelCoat ZR30 provides that premium level coating you can’t get at most print shops. Our customers will love the coating effects the ExcelCoat ZR30 can deliver and the quality difference will be very noticeable.”

Installed in August 2018, the new coater efficiently produces digital sized sheet print jobs with different coating technologies and impeccably applies aqueous soft touch coating to digitally printed projects. Along with two HP Indigo 7900 digital presses, a Brausse 1050SFi Diecutter and Foil Stamper and the world’s fastest saddle stitcher, Allen Press has positioned itself as one of the industry’s most modern and innovate printing companies.

“We have been so impressed by the breadth of offerings that Allen Press provides,” Sean Tobler, Harris & Bruno International Regional Manager said. “They are growing quickly, adding innovative equipment and have a super tenacious team. H&B is looking forward to helping Allen Press expand their capabilities and offer more to their customers through value-added coating application.”

The ExcelCoat ZR30 has already been producing high-quality results, running a number of digital sized projects. With the new coater’s versatility, high speed and premium quality as well as the professionalism and care shown by Harris & Bruno International, Allen Press customers will benefit for years to come.

“The entire H&B team has been pros to work with. From sales to project managers to the installation. Even H&B President Nick Bruno checked in to ensure we were completely satisfied,” said Allen Press CEO Randy Radosevich.  “It’s been one of the best experiences in working with a vendor on a new equipment install. And we’ve installed lots of new equipment over the last few years.”
