Southern Lithoplate expands production capacity
Southern Lithoplate, Inc. has recently completed a significant expansion of production capacity at its North Carolina headquarters campus.
Comprehensive investments in R&D and manufacturing capabilities were made to accommodate the demand among printing companies for Southern Lithoplate's Liberty NXP no-process plates.
The core development for Liberty NXP took place at SLP's Grand Rapids, Mich., campus. "We knew the Liberty NXP plate had the potential for broad adoption, when we introduced it in 2014," said E. A. "Trip" Casson III, SLP chairman & CEO. "The industry's acceptance of Liberty NXP's signature 'Develop-on-Press' technology and the continuing response to SLP's sales and service business model has been very gratifying. With this significant investment toward expanding our production capabilities, we can now bring Liberty NXP's advantages to even more printers."
Casson added, "Liberty NXP is a 'true no-process' printing plate that delivers what printers demand. Another great plus is that it is a non-ablative, fast exposure, mid-to-long-run printing plate that is extremely easy to use and can be imaged on virtually any 830 thermal computer-to-plate device."
