Printing operations at the Press & Sun-Bulletin will end and shift to a regional facility in Rochester owned by its parent company, officials announced.
The move is expected to take place in mid-June and affects about 98 employees involved in printing and packaging at the Gannett Co. owned plant at 10 Gannett Drive Johnson City, NY 13790. The company will continue distribution at this facility.
“The decision was made to create operational efficiencies and savings within Gannett. This will allow us the ability to fully use the resources of Rochester’s Facility and its state-of-the-art equipment by combining and consolidating the printing operations”, said George Troyano, President of Central New York Media, part of the USA TODAY Network.
Printing operations have been consolidated throughout the industry over several decades.
Troyano said the company will assist employees in applying for any other positions in the company for which they are qualified. Additionally, they will be eligible to apply for positions at the Rochester facility.
He said the change is not expected to significantly change delivery times of products.
“We want to thank our loyal, hard-working employees for their many contributions in helping to produce the quality content we deliver every day,” Troyano said. “Leveraging all resources will allow us to continue our focus on delivering great content and journalism, without compromising quality.”
Gannett owns USA TODAY and 109 local news operations including 6 in New York. Binghamton, Ithaca, and Elmira products will be printed in the same plant that now produces the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.
Your conscience is the part of you that hurts when all your other parts feel so good.
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it. - Groucho Marx
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

If I remember correctly, Tom Libous got a big chunk of taxpayer dollars for that new printing press at the JC location. Wonder if a refund is coming?
Let's dig old Tommy boy up and see. or maybe just ask Fat Fran , he made sure she got all his ill gotten gains.

How can this possibly be?
I think it may be because the print edition contains almost no current news. Most of the stories are several days old. I get the Sunday paper and often find stories about news event that I’ve read online earlier in the week. Sports scores are delayed. Opinion, local interest and classifieds aren’t time sensitive. Just push the deadline for news back a couple hours to transport from Rochester to Binghamton and the difference will be minimal - except for a few more days of “your delivery will be delayed”...
