The Walla Walla Union-Bulletin has chosen imPRESSions Worldwide for the relocation and installation of a 3-Tower pressline. The Union-Bulletin (owned by the Seattle Times Company) acquired the thirteen-unit press from Pendleton, OR to be moved to their Walla Walla, WA facility. This press will replace an older Urbanite. The Yakima Herald (also owned by the Seattle Times Company) will support the project and run jobs for Walla Walla and Pendleton.

The Press has Tensor Towers and a DGM 1030 Folder. Jardis zero speed splicers will replace the old rollstands in Walla Walla. The new Press will deliver higher quality four color with more versatility and flexibility for commercial work. The jaw folder will offer quarter folded products as well.

Once the Pendleton Press is removed, delivered, and installed by imPRESSions, the Walla Walla plant will print more commercial work in addition to the Union-Bulletin. The project is underway now and the Press is expected to be printing live jobs before Christmas.

President of imPRESSions Worldwide, Tom Loesch remarked, “We are honored to be awarded this project by the Seattle Times and to work in such a beautiful place. This is a fun project that will position Walla Walla for long term success in print. Walla Walla continues to grow and gain popularity as a well-respected wine region in Washington State. We love the Pacific Northwest and executing local projects for the great people who live and work here.”
