Sacramento, CA –The bold moves keep coming as DOME builds a bindery to rival their newly equipped offset and digital press rooms. On the heels of this month’s addition of two HP Indigo 12000 presses to the digital press fleet and March’s announcement of the KBA Rapida 205 and 106 offset presses, DOME is partnering once again with Muller Martini to add to its powerhouse production facility.

Muller’s Primera MC is an advanced and highly efficient saddle stitcher for the state-of-the-art super facility. Its innovative Motion Control technology dramatically reduces setup times, and the result is a highly efficient saddle stitcher perfectly designed for today’s fast-paced, high quality, demanding projects.

“The Primera MC will deliver increased capacity and improved capability to our finishing department. The efficiencies of this stitcher are important for the production of small to medium offset projects and uber critical where digital print is concerned. This investment allows us to keep up with the output of our two new HP 12000s, which are installing as we speak,” remarks Misha Pavlov, Dome’s President.

Added Andy Fetherman, Muller Martini’s Vice President of Sales and Technology,

“It’s always exciting to partner with companies that are providing a true competitive edge. Dome’s continued investment in both equipment and technology underscores their commitment to their customers. We’re proud to be a part of their growth.”

The Primera MC will be delivered to Dome’s new 320,000 square facility that will be in full production by the end of 2017. “This is another acquisition that is in alignment with our core strategic initiatives. We have the right location and we are making the right equipment choices to continue to streamline, be more efficient and drive our costs down,” states Tim Poole, Owner and CEO. “Each step we take is helping us to expand into exciting new markets, while offering current clients amazing benefits,” concludes Bob Poole, Owner and CMO.

Sacramento, CA – In a year of bold moves for DOME, this is the next great addition! DOME is welcoming two HP Indigo 12000 presses. The 29 inch HP Indigo 12000 Digital Press produces the widest commercial application range with superior print quality, high productivity, and wide versatility. The HP Indigo 12000 is capable of 3,450 4/0 20”x29” sheets per hour of 50# text up to 18pt.

“This is another critical piece of our strategic plan to revolutionize DOME, and lead our market. The investment will drive sales by bringing greater capacity and new capabilities to our customers, while continuing to expand our relationship with HP. You can’t put together an unparalleled powerhouse offset pressroom like we have, and not complement it by bringing in these two darlings to bolster our digital offering,” states Misha Pavlov, DOME’s President.

Although the newly added KBA presses will deliver direct to DOME’s new 320,000 square foot facility, the two HPs are needed immediately and will be delivered to DOME’s current main facility in Sacramento on July 17th , and will be operating by the end of the month.

Owners Tim and Bob Poole detailed, “The HPs expanded substrate capability offers direct printing on canvas, plastics, paperboard, synthetics and metalized substrates, which will benefit our retail and packaging clients, while the larger 29” sheet size will benefit our direct mail clients with more pages of variable data messaging. This press makes perfect sense for us.”

DOME values their HP relationship and appreciates the comments from Haim Levit, VP & GM, Indigo & Inkjet Press Solutions, Americas, HP Inc., “Utilizing their vast horsepower and extensive capabilities, DOME is recognized as the single-source leader to delivering results to clients. With the addition of not one, but two HP Indigo 12000’s to their arsenal, they continue to lead the way with the highest-quality and largest-format sheetfed offering, but now with the added advantages and versatility that only the larger 29” digital print delivers. We look forward to our continued partnership with DOME, helping them meet production goals and customer expectations, both now and into the future.”
