Our Printing Facilities
A major commitment to information choice in Pittsburgh.
Walk through NewsWorks, the Tribune-Review's $42 million printing facility, and you'll see:
- A state-of-the-art computer-to-plate system ensuring accurate registration on every page.
- A fully equipped packaging center that can insert, bundle, and ski products at top speeds.
NewsWorks is the state-of-the-art newspaper printing facility of the present. But it's also a plant constructed with an eye toward the future.
The design concept behind NewsWorks is to provide the necessary capacity to publish today's Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, with the added ability to handle future growth, without major construction. And if the future requires even greater expansion, that can occur with minimal operational disruptions.
For the long-term future, NewsWorks is already designed to double in size from the current building. And when that need arrives, construction can occur without interfering with daily operations.
