The expansion allows for the installation of the companies third 50” x 80” inline plate processor, as well as an additional dryer/ light finishing unit.
The plant expansion and infrastructure investment comes as West Essex Graphics moves toward three-shift, round-the-clock plate making to service its growing client roster. With a customer base that reaches the West Coast, the expanded shifts also will help the company meet deadlines of clients across various time zones.
