SEYI / SHIEH YIH PRESSES: Seyi was founded in Taiwan in 1962. In 1985 Mark Sutherland & Robert Heller created a JV, Heller-Sutherland Presses with the intention of serving all of NA & SA markets. Sutherland bought out Heller in the late 1980’s. While Seyi quality from the starting point did not meet our expectations, we saw an opportunity to work with Seyi engineers to bring them up to our industrial standards. This was a much larger undertaking than we had thought, but over a 12 year period from 1985 to 1997, we gained serious market share and installed of 700 press lines. In 1997, the Asian crisis was crippling Seyi sales in the Asian markets. They owners at the time, came to Sutherland and requested that we make a 3 way JV, Sutherland, Seyi & CNB (Clearing Niagara Bliss). Sutherland rejected the idea and was not about to let CNB ride on our success of 700 press line installations. Sutherland terminated its agreement with Seyi, notified all 27 customers with machines in process that they could stay with Seyi or move with Sutherland to our alternate builder, all 27 customers elected to stick with Sutherland.
