So, how do we deliver high quality at a cost that creates real customer value?

It starts with more than 77 years of manufacturing know-how, coupled with our patented technology built into our lithoplates. They have superior printability, color fidelity, crispness and fine detail; low power requirements; fast imaging speeds; and durable performance that stands up to even the most demanding pressroom.

Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Wake Forest, North Carolina,  and Grand Rapids, Michigan, are led by seasoned industry professionals employing the latest technology, automation and process controls that ensure our operations are lean, cost-effective and efficient. Our niche market focus enables us to provide products with best-in-class quality and performance.

Our operations are equally lean—selling directly to customers with no expensive distributor network; no giant inventory to warehouse. Our pro-active relationship with our customers means we know what you need and when. And our close integration means continuous improvement to meet your needs.

Our Strategic Alliance Partners allow us to offer fully integrated prepress and pressroom best-in-class solutions at the lowest total cost of ownership.

The bottom line is Southern Lithoplate means Better Technology at a Better Value with Faster Delivery, Better Service and Technical Support.
