SHERBURNE, N.Y. — The Mid-York Press, Inc. of Sherburne is adding a new color printing press with plans to add as many as 20 new employees by the first quarter of 2018 as well.

The company describes itself as a national supplier of printed packaging, folding cartons, and package inserts. It also provides commercial-printing services in both sheet fed offset and digital technologies.

 “We are nearly doubling our printing capacity because we cannot meet demand with our current equipment,” Robert Tenney, president of the Mid-York Press, said in a news release. “We need the new equipment yesterday but we are just going to have to wait until it is built.”

The centerpiece of the expansion is a new Heidelberg CX 6 color printing press.

“The new press will allow us to expand the realm of printing we can produce and bring jobs currently contracted out back in-house” Shawn Aikins, VP and plant manager, added in the release.

The printing press will ship from Heidelberg, Germany in September and should arrive at Mid-York in mid-October. It will take about six weeks to install the new press.

The company intends to add 10 to 12 positions initially and as many as 20 more by the first quarter of 2018. Those interested should contact the firm’s human-resources department at (607) 674-4491 or email Rick Ranc, human-resources director, at rranc@midyorkpress.com.

The company currently employs 18 people in administrative and sales positions, 51 workers in manufacturing operations, and about nine temporary employees, Ranc said in an email response to a BJNN inquiry.

The new employees could include some of the temporary employees, he noted.

The Mid-York Press Inc. was founded in 1828 and incorporated in 1946.
