Wolverine Solutions Group, a Detroit-based business communications company, has invested $3 million in a high-definition Screen Truepress Jet 520 HD printer for commercial printing and publishing applications.
The addition of the 12-by-75-foot printer required an expansion of Wolverine’s 180,000-square-foot production facility. Business sectors served by Wolverine include advertising and creative agencies, automotive, healthcare, insurance, gaming, financial services, and government units such as cities and schools.
The Screen Truepress Jet 520 HD printer offers 300 feet per minute output, 1,200-by-1,200 resolution, the ability to print on a wide range of paper substrates and board weights up to 12-point stock, independently controlled print heads that allow for quicker transitions between print jobs, and more.
“Five hundred thousand-piece projects that may take two weeks with a traditional printer can now be done in a few days, or even hours, with the Truepress,” says Robert Tokar, CEO of Wolverine. “It’s this combination of quality and speed to market that will give our customers meaningful options in digital versus hard copy when determining the best method to communicate with their audiences.”
Company officials with Wolverine say the printer creates new opportunities for innovation in direct mail products, such as postcards and one-piece mailers.
Wolverine is the only company in Michigan to own the Screen Truepress, which was manufactured by Dainippon Screen Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kyoto, Japan.
Founded in 1978, Wolverine Solutions Group is a second-generation company with products that include e-delivery, print management, traditional mail, data services, statement processing, fulfillment, and more. The company supports more than one million end-user customers each day across a range of industries.
