Bob has served as editor of In-plant Graphics since October of 1994. Prior to that he served for three years as managing editor of Printing Impressions, a commercial printing publication. Mr. Neubauer is very active in the U.S. in-plant industry. He attends all the major in-plant conferences and has visited more than 130 in-plant operations around the world. He has given presentations to numerous in-plant groups in the U.S., Canada and Australia, including the Association of College and University Printers and the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association. He also coordinates the annual In-Print contest, cosponsored by IPMA and In-plant Graphics.

When Colgate University Document & Mail Services installed its Xerox iGen3 in 2008, the 10-employee in-plant was very happy with the results. But a lot can change in a few years. “The business model we had five years ago...has changed considerably,” notes Director Bob Keats. “With the iGen, there was no way to hook any finishing equipment to it. We had a space limitation.” So booklet making had to be handled offline. 

Three in-plant managers recently paid a visit to Russia to share information about their operations with a group of university book publishers there. They spoke at a three-day conference held by the Publishing and Press Association of Universities of Russia, in Pushkin, Russia.
