W+D sells its 3rd intelligent inserter and Halm SuperJet to Fort Orange Press09/23/2020

Lenexa, KS  -  W+D North America announces the sale of its 3rd intelligent inserter, the BB700 S2, for vote-by-mail and direct mail solutions to Fort Orange Press in Albany, NY.  According to Robert F. Witko, President of Fort Orange Press, “Adding this new piece of equipment to Fort Orange Press’s arsenal allows us to offer a more comprehensive scope of printing and mailing services to clients looking for accurate and secure delivery of critical, direct mail communications. The expanded size capability of the BB700 S2 inserter will allow us to do special formats, rounding out our direct mail capabilities for even more horsepower and allowing us to expand our footprint for election ballot printing and mailing to East Coast and Southern states.  In addition to the BB700 S2 inserter, we have also invested in W+D’s Halm SuperJet for faster turnaround times for custom printed envelopes including oath, reply and outer envelopes used in vote-by-mail election solutions.”

Jamie Dickinson, Vice President of Production at Fort Orange Press, adds “as we have grown to become the expert source for optical scan ballot printing in the Northeast, it is only logical that our third intelligent inserter for vote-by-mail initiatives would be the BB700 S2, as it comfortably handles virtually all outer envelopes from a #9 up to a 10 x 13 booklet with ease, even when faced with tight side to side tolerances. The new piece of equipment will allow Fort Orange Press to handle greater capacity with accuracy and efficiency.”

Michael Ring, President of W+D North America, notes “the BB700 S2 is the backbone for reliable, high integrity vote-by-mail and direct mail solutions.  Our patented auto mis-match recovery; file base inserting; and elevated track for variable data overprinting of the oath or reply envelope has made W+D the go to supplier for high-speed ballot inserters with a market share of greater than 75% in North America.  We are thrilled to again partner with Fort Orange Press who boasts over 100 years of ballot printing to expand their capabilities with a 3rd intelligent inserter and Halm SuperJet by W+D.”
