We are investing over £11m in upgrading our facilities

Planned expansion is now well underway at our main site in Leeds as we invest heavily in infrastructure and machinery.

We have  invested over £7million in the construction of a new single storey warehouse extension that is being added to the main site building at Aire Valley House, Leeds.  This will also include an additional extension to the existing ink store.

Our latest equipment investment includes 4 million Euros on an Allstein Hydro 10 colour flexo printing press and a new Comexi Slitter machine that uses state of the art laser technology.  This follows the purchase earlier in the year of a new Pouch machine, to the value of 500,000 Euros.

“Investing in the future of the business is crucial and these recent developments will allow us to operate even more efficiently, future-proof our business and better support our growing customer base,” comments Managing Director, William Roberts.

“The new flexo printing press is capable of running up to 500 metres per minute and comes fitted with the latest A RUN technology which minimises set-up time and also material waste. Whereas the slitting machine comes with laser technology for microperforation and macroperforation for multiple applications and allows us to handle numbering, barcodes, QR codes and security systems which would conventionally be done off-line on a flexo press. All investment in equipment supports our sustainable goals, reducing waste and our carbon footprint wherever we can.”

As we move well into our 171st year in business, these latest investments mean we can easily manage an uptake in new contracts, business turnover having already increased to just under £45 million over the previous year.

It’s an exciting time for our staff and customers as we prepare for the future.
