Presses to Peru

Ship the presses!

Sun Media presses no longer in use at its newspapers have been sold to a group in Peru, says a Niagara Falls Review story.

Presses from the Review, the Welland Tribune and Sarnia Observer are included in the group sale, says the story by Ray Spiteri.

"We're now getting printed in Toronto and we had this structure, obviously, that we no longer needed," says Review publisher Dave Martineau. "They'll be reassembled and used as newspaper printing presses in Peru."

Martineau notes the paper's seven-unit Urbanite presses were installed in 1979 and only two years ago there were plans to add two units to the presses.

As a TSF tipster noted the other day, fewer printing presses in Ontario, fewer opportunities for start-up community weeklies and dailies to compete against Quebecor Media.
