Fry Communications Announces Additions to Saddle Bindery

Mechanicsburg, PA - 11/3/04 - Fry Communications, Inc. announces the installation of a new Muller Martini High Speed Tempo 22 saddle binder, and the order of an identical binder slated for delivery in late 2004.

These twin high speed binders will feature the latest productivity and ergonomic enhancements, as well as state of the art inkjet imaging and selective binding capabilities. The ergonomic/automation enhancements relieve crew members from many repetitive motions, reduce fatigue and consequently reduce the related risk of injury.

During its initial production run,"The first machine's startup shattered all company stitcher speed records," said Henry Fry, President of the company. "That's good for both customers and Fry. The ergonomic enhancements are good for employees. It's truly a winning combination all around."

Both binders will reside in the newest of Fry's buildings. When the second binder goes into production, Fry will have 15 saddle stitchers online to support the increasing customer demand for services.
