S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • April 2018 • 13 Dover Digital Printing Established to Capture Market Synergies Downers Grove, Illinois-based Dover Corp., a diversified global manufacturing company with annual revenues in excess of $8 billion, announces the formation of Dover Digital Printing, a new operating company within its Engineered Systems division. Dover Digital Printing will consist of Caldera, MS Printing Solutions and JK Group, all of which the com- pany owns, and will become a provider of digital textile, graphics and signage printing solutions. The new operating company will leverage syner- gies within the printing industry by bringing together a range of products already under its ownership, includ- ing printing equipment, software and inks. It will also allow those individual brands to continue to serve their traditional customers as independent operations. The new company—Dover Digital Printing—will have more than 400 employees and be a global business that is focused on providing digital inkjet solutions for industrial printing applications across fashion, sports- wear, beachwear, home decoration, soft signage, signs, graphics and displays, the company says. Gemini Sponsors Robotics Team Cannon Falls, Minnesota-based Gemini, manufacturers of dimen- sional letters, logos and plaques, announces that for the third year, it will provide financial sponsorship and engineering mentorship, in addition to supplying equipment such as a plasma cutter, router table, 3D printer, fabrication materials, and plant equipment, for the Cannon Falls Bombers Robotics program. "Gemini is committed to promoting careers in manufacturing. We felt the robotics program was the best means to do this as it engages students in engineering, fabrication, marketing, leader- ship and teamwork," says Phil Jacobson, vice president of human resources, who heads the initiative. Jacobson says that the robotics team has even conducted demonstrations of their robot's capabilities for all of the employees at Gemini. "Our people have commented on how much they appre- ciate that we are involved in giving the students, many of whom are their relatives, this kind of opportunity." Going forward, Gemini hopes the partnership with the schools provides our society with better prepared citizens who will contrib- ute positively to their work environment. Jacobson adds, "Selfishly, we hope many of them will come to work for Gemini." Gemini is a proud spon- sor of the Cannon Falls Bombers Robotics Team.
