AliGraphics (White Plains, NY), a full-service printing and graphics company and part of the Amalgamated Family of Companies, recently underwent a facilities expansion at its current White Plains location. The company added 8,000 square feet to its existing space bringing its total square footage to 13,000 square feet. The expansion was designed to accommodate more production equipment and provide additional office space for AliGraphics’ design/graphics operations, broader production capabilities, estimators and customer service operations.
According to AliGraphics President John Dubil, “Our larger facilities give us the opportunity to provide new services and add to our already strong line-up of leading edge print and production technologies. For example, we recently purchased next generation 8000 and 7000 Konica Minolta high speed, color digital presses. These presses offer fast, reliable, high quality production along with other capabilities such as in-line finishing options. We also added a new metal plate maker, UV coater and new mailing equipment. Additionally, we’re in the process of purchasing silk screening equipment which will give us a new capability for silk screening on t-shirts and other promotional items.”
AliGraphics has been continually enhancing its capabilities over the past several years. Most recently, in 2010, the company purchased the Presstek 34DI, technology which provides an automated set-up, printing with “makeready” and imaging capability that can be achieved in ten minutes; perfect for the most time-sensitive jobs. Also among the newer additions to its line are two Xerox Nuvera EA Production Systems offering printing, reprinting, copying scanning and finishing capabilities. These systems reflect the advanced technologies being used by AliGraphics to deliver high quality, high performance print production services.
Dubil noted that, while AliGraphics is not adding new employees at this time, plans are to expand the staff as the company begins rolling out new capabilities, such as the silk screening, as well as handling more, higher volume mailings made possible with its increased capacity.
