LAWRENCE, Kan. – May 30, 2018 – Allen Press, Inc. is excited to announce the purchase of a Muller Martini Tempo 22 Saddle Stitcher. The Tempo 22 is among the world’s fastest saddle stitchers, producing up to 22,000 booklets per hour.

The acquisition further cements Allen Press’ position as the most advanced and versatile printing company in Kansas and Missouri. Customers will benefit greatly from this technological marvel which will deliver faster turnaround times, top quality and greater efficiencies on the production of all 8 ½ x 11 range saddle stitched materials.

“We have built an aspirational and world-class equipment list over the last few years, now besting even our largest competitors in the Kansas City area,” said Randy Radosevich, Allen Press CEO. “Adding the Tempo 22 further highlights our ascension to being an industry leader. This is very exciting for Allen Press, our partners, and the entire Lawrence, KS community.”
