At its plant in North Chelmsford, Courier prints only digital products under the brand name Courier Digital Solutions (CDS) – consisting mostly of textbooks for schools and universities as well as specialty trade books. In addition to the Diamant MC Digital, CDS also has a SigmaBinder/Tower/Trimmer, an Acoro A7 perfect binder and three SigmaFolder/Collators with SigmaControl in their plant.
Courier Corporation which was founded in 1824 has had a Diamant bookline in operation for six years at a different site and had purchased a second machine a month ago making this Diamant their third. “Courier and Muller Martini not only have a strong long-term partnership; we also have the same goals when it comes to production processes,” says Brennan, explaining the reasons behind this most recent investment. “In addition, the Diamant enables us to offer our customers high quality hardcover books equivalent in every way to books produced in our offset plants.”
