Gooding stays on cutting edge by investing in new technology.

LOCKPORT, NY - May 15, 2011

Gerald Hace, president of Gooding Co. Inc., is pleased to announce that the company recently invested in a series of technology enhancements including a new optical comparator and a new Perfecta cutting system.

Gooding's new optical comparator ensures reproduction integrity when comparing press sheets to approved PDF files or rasterized PDFs to native PDFs. The comparator's state-of-the-art technology uses a pixel-to-pixel overlay/comparison to validate copy between printed sheets, master approved electronic files, and native electronic files with plate (rasterized) ready production files. The comparator, which is part 21 CFR compliant as per FDA standards, is so sophisticated that it will catch even the smallest graphic or typographical discrepancy, right down to a missing comma.

Gooding also invested in a Perfecta High-Speed Guillotine cutting system to improve efficiency and accuracy in pre- and post-press operations. The Perfecta cutting system is able to easily slice through large thicknesses of paper and is more "user-friendly" for operators, translating into faster turnaround times for Gooding customers.

Gooding has also made several IT/software upgrades. In order to better manage and assist its customers, the company made improvements to both its Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and ticket tracking software. Gooding added to its already stringent security, through server and virus protection upgrades, as well as a new remote monitoring system, which allows Gooding to access data even if the servers go down.

The precision, accuracy, and efficiency guaranteed by Gooding's new equipment are critical in following the LEAN manufacturing principles to which the company is committed.

Established in 1876, Gooding is today a cGMP compliant specialty printer, manufacturing inserts and outserts for the pharmaceutical and medical industries. They have offices in Lockport, NY and Baltimore, MD.
