Everett Graphics is investing in its future with a new KBA (Booth 2227) Rapida 106 41" sheetfed press at its facility in Oakland, CA. The new press will build on the firm’s success as a leading provider of high quality packaging for the food and beverage, health and beauty, pharmaceutical and medical, and technology markets.
Everett Graphics chose the new KBA Rapida press to allow the firm to continue to be recognized for its high-quality output and production expertise. Everett will be utilizing the Rapida’s automated functions to deliver fast turnaround, added efficiency, and continued quality control.
Since it was established more than 30 years ago, Everett has been answering its customers’ demands to maintain high quality, support brand integrity through repeat consistency, and shorten turn times. Everett has raised the standard for productivity, efficiency, quality, and profitability. The firm has been awarded numerous honors for its printing and converting quality by the Craftsman Club Gallery of Superb Printing, Printing Industry Association, and Printing Industries of Northern California.
With an emphasis on high quality printing and forming capabilities, Everett has grown its customer base to create high-quality packaging for the food and beverage, health and beauty, pharmaceutical and medical, and technology markets. Its customers require consistency and quality, which the new KBA Rapida 106 press will be able to supply with features such as its automated quality control system. The new Rapida’s ability to print on a variety of substrates will enable Everett to switch easily to handle a wide mix of jobs. Everett will continue to create sleek, functional packaging utilizing the new KBA Rapida press.
A key part of Everett’s goal is to reduce the environmental impact of print. To that end, the new KBA Rapida, through its automation and streaming throughput, will allow the manufacturing standards at Everett Graphics to continue these environmental efforts. As a Bay Area Green Business, Everett feels strongly about its duty to help its clients make environmentally responsible choices whenever possible through its internal waste management and recycling programs, its selection of recycled and FSC Certified materials, or its soy-based inks.
