Bangor Daily News To Stop Printing Their Newspaper; Will Subcontract It Out To A Nice Lady In Lewiston With A Mimeograph Machine

Bangor Daily News printing pressBANGOR, Maine — Bangor Publishing Co., owner of the Bangor Daily News, on Friday announced plans to shutter its Hampden printing plant later this year. The company has reached agreements with media partners to print its daily newspaper. In September, Bangor Publishing will begin to outsource the majority of its printing to Sun Media Group, owner of the Sun Journal in Lewiston and several weeklies, including The Forecaster, according to Todd Benoit, chief operating officer of Bangor Publishing Co. To handle the job, Sun Media Group will subcontract some printing to Alliance Press, which operates a commercial printing press in Brunswick. Issues of the BDN distributed in Aroostook County will be printed at Bangor Publishing’s press in Presque Isle, where one of the company’s subsidiaries, Northeast Publishing Co., is located. Benoit said multiple factors contributed to the decision to consolidate printing operations, including reduced circulation and an aging flexographic press, built in 1964, which would need substantial investment in the near future.

    Hi John- Thanks for reading, and for shoveling your sidewalk.

    Bangor does indeed have a newspaper, and the population of Bangor’s lips sure are tired after they read it.
