DAYTON, Ohio--(Business Wire)--
Standard Register (NYSE: SR) has announced plans for a new national Center of
Excellence for digital printing, kitting and distribution in Jeffersonville,
Ind., which is in the greater Louisville, Ky. metropolitan area. This new
335,000 square foot center will provide Standard Register customers more
flexible delivery options and improved speed-to-market for communications
products, services and solutions. 

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Standard Register EDGE
(Economic Development for a Growing Economy) tax credits and a training grant
from the Skills Enhancement Fund in support of the project along with enterprise
zone investment deductions from the River Ridge Development Authority. 

"Standard Register`s $10 million investment in this new Center of Excellence
allows us to operate more efficiently, advance our digital printing capabilities
and leverage the deep capability of the local workforce to better serve our
customers," said Joseph P. Morgan, Jr., president and chief executive officer. 

The new Center of Excellence, which is expected to be operational early in the
third quarter of 2013, will leverage industry-leading technologies for advanced
color management, planning and scheduling, and workflow management. The center
will also offer distribution and kitting services similar to other Standard
Register facilities including secure storage areas, order fulfillment, track and
trace, and kitting, while also utilizing RF scanning, bar-coding, and RFID
technology. The center`s proximity will provide easy access to United Parcel
Service`s (UPS) Worldport, the world`s largest fully automated package handling
facility. The combination of capabilities, technology, processes and location
will allow Standard Register to meet customers` current and evolving business
requirements. 

To take full advantage of the enhanced capabilities and support customer
requirements, some operations from existing Standard Register facilities will be
transferred to the new center. The company will maintain local presence in the
current manufacturing and distribution network to meet customer needs.
