Harmony Press (Easton, PA) has announced the purchase and installation of a new 8-color Heidelberg press designed to improve operational efficiencies for the company and spur economic development in the company’s area.

The press was purchased through the assistance of a $2.5 million low-interest loan from the Northampton County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) funded by Lafayette Ambassador Bank. According to Harmony Press, this loan will reap big benefits for the printer and its customers as well as its employees and neighbors in the Lehigh Valley.

The installation of new Heidelberg CD-74 8-color perfecting press raises the profile of the Easton printer. Harmony can print up to eight colors on one side or four colors on two sides in a single pass. It gives new creative opportunities to Harmony’s clients, and the speed and enhanced features on the press allow the company to increase productivity and operating efficiencies.

“This new press is important because it reduces the production costs on most print jobs and allows us to pass those savings on to our customers. In addition to being a faster press, this press allows our customers to have more versatility in design by taking advantage of the 8-color plus coating capabilities,” says Gary Male, GM, Harmony Press.

“We view ourselves as partners in the growth of the area economy and we look forward to being an integral part of the community for many years to come,” Male adds.
