Decolabel adds fourth Nilpeter press

April 25, 2014

The Dutch converter's new FA-4* is an 8-color press with GEW UV-drying, four hot air dryers, a double diecutting unit and a crossover unit.

Decolabel BV, a Dutch, family-owned label converter, has invested in its fourth Nilpeter press with the new FA-4*. Decolabel is one of three converters in the Netherlands who has chosen to invest in the new Nilpeter flexo printing press, launched at LabelExpo Europe 2013.

Decolabel was founded by Chris Dekker in 1989. Back then, the company produced packaging material, and it was not until 1995, that Decolabel began specializing in self-adhesive labels. Within the last couple of years, the company has expanded its reach: 50% of the production is exported to neighboring countries. Last year, Decolabel experienced a 22% growth in business – which called for an expansion in production equipment.

The FA-4* to be installed at Decolabel’s facilities in Roosendaal is an 8-color press with GEW UV-drying, four hot air dryers, a double diecutting unit and a crossover unit. “The performance of the Nilpeter FA-4* allows us to increase our production speed considerably, due to very fast job-changes, while at the same time maintaining the high-quality products at competitive prices for which we are known," says Leander Dekker, production manager at Decolabel.

“The experience we have with the reliability of Nilpeter presses is such, that it was a no-brainer for us to invest in yet another," Dekker explains. “Our oldest Nilpeter press turns 19 years old this year – and it is still running like the wind! With this new acquisition of the FA-4*, we fortify our commitment to our top priorities: Speed, accuracy, and customer satisfaction."

The FA-4* is the newest member of Nilpeter’s FA-Line.
