Document automation company, Datagraphic, has announced further investment in its production centre, purchasing a letter sorter from Böwe Systec.

The Rugby-based company, which installed a Xerox Trivor HD 2400 inkjet web press in September of last year, has said the investments are all part of its growth strategy, ensuring capacity is available for increasing volumes of same-day document processing.

The Böwe Systec letter sorter, installed at the start of November, can process up to 46,500 letters per hour to 128 sort bins, which have been set-up in a two-tier, two-sided configuration with integrated tray drawers.

‘Installing two significant pieces of equipment in the production centre in a matter of months has taken a real team effort and meticulous planning,’ said Datagraphic general manager, Sarah Butler. ‘Our customers trust us with time-critical financial, employee and healthcare communications which we often have to print and mail within hours of receiving the data. Expanding our mail sortation and consolidation capacity ensures we continue to meet demand and do it efficiently.’

‘We took the decision to work with Böwe Systec as researching the market they appeared to be the go-to provider of letter sortation in the UK,’ explained group managing director Glyn King. ‘They also demonstrated a depth of knowledge in mail consolidation and offered a package of on-site support and preventative maintenance, which is essential for time-critical operations like ours. The team at Böwe Systec in Derby specifically have worked closely with us to understand the way our business works and make the installation as seamless as possible.’

‘We are truly delighted to be working with Datagraphic and to be supporting them in the business transformation that is taking place,’ added Andy Wain, UK sales director at Böwe Systec. ‘Our clear focus at Böwe Systec is to deliver value to our customers through our experience and knowledge of the mailing market and not just to provide equipment solutions. This is what I believe makes us the only choice when it comes to supporting businesses with any mailing or parcel related challenges and opportunities they may have.’
