Bay Cities Significantly Reduces Production Time with New Zenith 210 PLUS Die Cutter

PICO RIVERA, Calif. (August 2016) — Bay Cities, an award-winning provider of quality point-of-purchase displays, industrial and retail packaging, and in-store signage, has purchased the Young Shin ZENITH 210 PLUS high-speed die cutter. This state-of-the-art machine is a versatile flatbed die cutter, with advanced computerized features; it has the ability to save approximately 15 to 20 minutes of production time per job. This will allow Bay Cities to improve overall customer service by decreasing production lead time.

The Young Shin Zenith 210 PLUS die cutter has the capability to run single and double wall corrugated, litho label and single-faced laminated board, foam core, plastic, and much more. Producing 5,000 sheets per hour, the Zenith 210 PLUS is the most productive, large format die cutter that Bay Cities has owned to date.

Designed for ease of use, the increased production capabilities of the Zenith 210 PLUS do not come at the cost of error. With quality assistance and automated set-up as standard features, the Young Shin die cutter promotes production efficiency. Brett Kirkpatrick, Bay Cities’ Chief Operating Officer, adds, “For the past 60 years, we have made a conscientious effort to provide our clients with the best service in the industry. The Young Shin Zenith 210 Plus will allow us to not only improve upon, but to increase the range of services that we offer our clients.”

In an industry driven by speed to market, it is important to have both reliable and productive machines. The Young Shin brand has been producing quality and highly-reliable die cutters for the past 30 years.  Bay Cities’ capital investment into the Zenith 210 PLUS is exemplary of their commitment to provide their clients with outstanding service, aligned with cutting edge technology. Kirkpatrick comments, “Our clients are the foundation of our business. The mutual success of our business and our clients’ business is our ultimate goal. The addition of the Young Shin die cutter will only help to continue actualizing this reality.”
