Barton & Cooney Enhances Productivity by Adding Pitney Bowes FlowMaster® RS Flex Inserting System

 Technology Investment Helps Bring New Business to New Jersey Firm

STAMFORD, Conn., March 17, 2010 - Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) today announced that New Jersey-based print and mail leader Barton & Cooney has installed a second Pitney Bowes® FlowMaster® RS Flex Inserting System, continuing a transition to technologies that offer higher productivity, reliability and flexibility than systems provided by other firms.

The newly-installed system is the third major system that Barton & Cooney has acquired from Pitney Bowes in the past three years. In addition to the two FlowMaster® RS Flex Inserting Systems, Barton & Cooney in 2008 installed its first Pitney Bowes® FPS™ Split Drive Inserting System. Each new system from Pitney Bowes replaced two swing-arm systems, simplifying business processes at Barton & Cooney and lowering overall costs of operations.

“We continuously look for ways to meet the needs of our clients who demand personalized, high quality communications” said Barton & Cooney Owner and President Patrick Doyle. “This latest investment will not only help us to be more productive, but also to add value to the services we deliver with highly effective match mail and read and print capabilities. We can process more pieces, with faster turnaround times, and a more auditable level of integrity and quality. We are very pleased with the technology and support that Pitney Bowes has provided as we continue to invest in our future.”

The company operates out of an 85,000-square-foot facility in Burlington, New Jersey, and is Central and Southern New Jersey’s most experienced printing and mailing company.
