At the time of purchase, Marco F. Alvarado, CEO, stated, "I found the Quad-Stack press to be custom made for my purposes. I needed something compact, extremely efficient, easy to take care of, and affordable. I wanted a real support team behind my back and personalized treatment from the supplier. I got all this in one package."
When asked how his Quad-Stacks were holding up after a solid 10 year run, he replied,
Still looking great in 2016
"These beauties are in perfect condition overall.  I've given them pretty good preventative maintenance, and so far no corrective action has ever been necessary. After 10 years, time has no evident signs of wear and tear on these towers, and I highly recommend them over Community units at large."
The San Jose plant runs an average of over 200,000 monthly copies, predominantly tabloid size, with occasional requests for different sizes and/or finishes.

Random Trivia
A so-called "bolt from the blue" (lightning on a clear, blue sky day or cloudless evening) is actually a cloud-to-ground flash that occurs out of the backside of a thunderstorm cloud, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

In its truest form, a bolt from the blue travels from the cloud edge through clear air only before striking ground (often more than 20 miles from the parent storm). Many times, these flashes travel through old decaying storm clouds that have some residual electric charge.  What makes them dangerous is that they appear to come out of clear sky.
