Colter & Peterson Installs Perfect Binder for SanMar
Paterson, New Jersey-based Colter & Peterson, North America’s only distributor for the complete line of Wohlenberg perfect binders, completed installation of a Wohlenberg City 5000 perfect binder for Seattle-based SanMar Corporation, the largest apparel and accessory supplier in the U.S. for the imprintables industry in the company’s Issaquah, Wash. facility.
“This is a big upgrade compared to the system SanMar had in terms of speed, quality and binding,” said Tom Welby, vice president of perfect binder products for Colter & Peterson.
According to Mark Suda, production supervisor for SanMar’s catalog printing department, the new arrival will increase productivity. “We’re excited about adding the perfect binder,” said Suda. “[Additionally] we’re adding a new press in order to keep up with the machine.”
In addition, SanMar helped increase capabilities for the Wohlenberg City 5000 perfect binder by purchasing a book block feeder and a collator that allows them to run books through the machine’s four pockets as opposed to the more time intensive hand-feeding method. “The book block gives us the capability of running four separate jobs just by pushing a button,” said Suda.
