Australian printer moves from letterpress to flexo

Hill’s Labels chooses a Mark Andy 2200 for its production facility in North Western Sydney.

Hill's Labels has purchased a Mark Andy 2200 press for its new production facility in North Western Sydney, Australia. Hill's Labels, founded in 2005 by Scott and Louise Beadman, had been relying on a small rotary letterpress machine to fulfill customer requirements, but increases in customer demands prompted the printer to pursue a new facility, as well as updated technology.

According to Scott Beadman, a factor in choosing the Mark Andy was the local service and support offered by Aldus Engineering. Installation and training by Aldus took only five days.

"The addition of the Mark Andy 2200 has resulted in a 40 percent reduction in make-ready, both in time and material," says Beadman, owner of Hill's Labels. "Our capabilities have significantly increased."

This installation marked the fourth Australian Mark Andy 2200 press installation in 2008, and brings the total number of Mark Andy 2200 installations in the continent to more than 40.
