Take 2 of M&R’s Finish First with Kruzer Competition
will have teams racing to see which can assemble a Kruzer fastest,
with each day’s winning team taking home a brand new Kruzer!


Glen Ellyn, IL, USA— M&R is pleased to announce that Take 2 of the Finish First with Kruzer! competition will take place at the NBM B.I.G Show in Indianapolis, Indiana on Thursday and Friday, June 4th and 5th.

Eight randomly-selected teams of two will compete for the fastest assembly time. The team posting the fastest time each day will have the choice of taking home a free Kruzer manual screen printing press or applying $3,100 to the purchase of any other M&R manual or automatic screen printing press. And any team that competes but doesn’t win will receive a 10% discount on a new Kruzer.

Each day prior to the start of competition, entrants will get to watch the Kruzer Press Assembly Video, review the manual, and ask questions. All necessary tools will be provided by M&R.

The first Finish First with Kruzer! took place at the 2015 ISS Long Beach Show. The fastest time there was posted by Luan Dinh Le and Gil Tibayan of X-Press Tees in Honolulu, Hawaii. Luan and Gil assembled their Kruzer in 36:28 even though neither had seen a Kruzer before that day. Later, Luan said the Kruzer was amazingly easy to assemble.

When asked about the upcoming competition in Indianapolis, M&R CEO Rich Hoffman said, "The competition in Long Beach was a huge success, and we anticipate nothing less in Indy. Kruzer is amazingly easy to assemble, and Luan and Gil's phenomenal time bears that out. And it’s not just easy to assemble; it's an exceptional entry-level press designed for decades of rock-solid performance."

According to Long Beach event emcee and M&R General Manager Mike Sonera, "The Long Beach competition was an exciting event and tremendously fun to watch. I'm sure participants and spectators at the Indy Show will have a great time, too. And two teams will walk away with a substantial prize for less than an hour's worth of effort. In fact, Luan and Gil made about $83 dollars a minute assembling their Kruzer. That's a pretty good return."

Kruzer is M&R’s most affordable entry-level manual screen printing press, but it's still built with M&R innovation, quality, and rugged construction. The press includes tapered-roller-bearing-supported upper and lower carousels, a precise micro-registration system, machined center shaft, and three-point pallet leveling system. Kruzer's unique lever-adjusted off-contact system operates vertically, eliminating the need for a separate angle adjustment. Kruzer is available in a 6-color/4-station model, and it's designed to fit through a 78 cm (31") doorway when disassembled. Side screen holders and solid aluminum, low-profile, rubber-coated pallets are standard.

Kruzer delivers unprecedented quality, performance, and value in a manual press. It's ideal for startup screen printing shops and for small and mid-size automatic screen printing shops in need of an exceptionally affordable high-quality manual screen printing press for sampling and small runs.
