To celebrate, the company held an afternoon marker with champagne and nibbles.
Managing director Trevor Smith chose to purchase the new 8-color Edale FL3, which features AiiR print automation and delivers improved registration accuracy, reduced waste and setup times, reduced tooling cost and operator intervention leading to a more consistent, higher quality final product for its customers.
Smith says, “Edale offers the best combination of suitable technology, a knowledgeable team and synergy with our requirements. We plan to produce multi-color labels on specialist materials, such as multi-layer material labels. Using Edale technology, we are able to replace two of our existing presses with one."
