America. “They are also an important addition to our local network. KBR
brings strong relationships and experience, deep technical support and
excellent customer service to commercial printers and
corporate/government in-plant printers in its markets.”

“We were searching for a strong, international partner to help us bring
new, cost-efficient digital and offset print technologies to our
customers,” said Karl Belafi, Jr., vice president-sales, KBR Graphics.
“We found that partner in Ferrostaal, which has been serving printers
worldwide for the last 50 years.

“With their exclusive access to the full-line of RYOBI presses and other
top technology offerings, KBR can be an ever-stronger supplier and
advisor to our customers,” Belafi said.

KBR has sales and service staff in the Greater Toronto Area, which ranks
