I doubt it... QDS has done quite a bit of integration with the Midland plant.

Thought Midland to be Quebecor/Worldcolor's best small run plant. Must just be a rumor.

Show some balls and tell them what you really think. Quad Sucks and there lack of print awards shows it. Midland has always been a kiss ass and wishes they could print like Saint Cloud. Why do you think Primedia left...... Quad Sucks at printing, check there awards or lack there of.

They also did "quite a bit of integration" at Lebanon the previous 2 years before closing the doors. Even going as far as installing a new press at the cost of 30+ million. It's all a write off as declared value. Any legacy QW plants receiving upgrades or refubishments should be worried.

Primedia/Penton Business also left St Cloud. The two plants lost about the same amount of work from what I have heard. RR prints for them also. It is just that they got a contract signed with RR and RR said they would sweeten the deal if they got the rest of their work. Thats how I understand it. Now we are all Quad, so does that mean there will be no more awards? I think not. Besides, you really don't want to know what I think.

It is all about business and money. If you can't give me the product for the amount I am willing to pay, then I will go somewhere else. How simple can the explanations be to why work moves from one printer to another? How many titles have Quebecor/Worldcolor, Quad or RR have lost because of this? Simple economics. If you print a comparable product for less, why not? I don't care how many awards you have won. Just as long as my material meets my standards. How many more titles will you lose or receive? Time will tell. Have a good day.
