R. Hogan & Sons expands with Heidelberg

The company is run by the third generation of Hogans, servicing a range of corporate and agency-based clients and producing a variety of materials spanning jobbing work through to high quality four and five colour productions.

The new press will compliment the company’s existing fleet of Heidelberg GTO presses, entering into a service agreement with Heidelberg to ensure that they continue to perform at their optimum, says Peter Hogan, R. Hogan & Sons director.

“We’ve had a long and profitable relationship with Heidelberg. Our confidence in the company’s equipment and their back-up service and support means that we can grow at our own pace, incorporate new equipment into the production workflow and utilise our existing equipment to the best of its ability. The GTO’s are good presses and the service agreement offered by Heidelberg ensures that they will keep producing well into the future,” says Hogan.

“The installation of the SM74-5 has enabled us to improve our productivity by more efficiently producing an increased volume of four colour with varnish or five colour work. We are running the SM74-5 at 15,000 an hour on most jobs without any deviations in quality. The prepress interface and autoplate feature ensures we can complete our make-readys in record time.”

Heidelberg also rewarded R. Hogan & Sons loyalty to them, coming to its aid when its premises were broken into and key prepress equipment stolen.

“Thieves took the Heidelberg RIP as well as our two Macintosh computers. Within 24-hours Heidelberg had installed a demonstration unit of the RIP as well as two replacement computers so that we could reopen for business,” says Hogan.

“It is important to us and our customers that we are a Heidelberg shop. High quality work produced quickly and efficiently has seen our business survive the past 30 years and the Heidelberg solution, backed-up by excellent sales and service, has always ensured that we have been able to achieve these standards.”
