Andy Petersen has joined the Tidewater Direct team as General Manager of West Branch, Iowa facility.

West Branch, Iowa, 8/1/2009 – Andy Petersen has accepted a General Management position with Tidewater Direct, a high-volume continuous forms and generic insert printer with 3 US locations. This step demonstrates the commitment of Tidewater Direct to producing top notch printing and delivering all products on time.

With more than a decade of printing and management experience, Andy brings a level of quality and knowledge that rivals the best in the industry. With experience from Mackay Envelope and RR Donnelly, Andy will employ the best practices he has learned and implemented from overseeing lithographic operations for many years.

Tidewater Direct’s West Branch Iowa facility sports 2 Sanden forms presses with variable repeats, a full web perfecting fixed cylinder Hantscho, 3 new Heidelberg folders and 2 new Sabre cutters. The building was recently modified with 10,000 square feet of additional warehousing space. The new equipment along with recent building improvements allow for more efficient operation. The Iowa location makes it convenient and cost effective to deliver to mid west clients.
