President of Diamond, has plans to expand the company, tak- ing it into new markets and opening up new revenue streams. In order to accommodate the growth, the company needed to focus on two areas. First, the move to a new larger facility, currently underway. Second, the installation of a new state-of- the-art 10-color printing press that could meet the growing — and changing — demands of the converter. In order to meet that challenge, Diamond turned to press manufacturer Uteco.
