Pureprint Group has expanded its range of finishing capabilities, investing in a range of new equipment including a Müller Martini Alegro A7 binder, an MBO K8 folder, a Polar 137 auto trim guillotine, a Meccanotechnica Astronic 180 thread sewer and a Kisun layflat binder.

‘The new high speed folder has been brought in to complement our current folding line up and gives us more folding capacity,’ said manufacturing director Craig Berresford. ‘Capacity that will be put to great use with the recent purchases of a Kinsun layflat binder and Astronic sewing machine. The new Müller Martini Alegro has seen running speeds improve dramatically thus also needing the extra folded sections. By bringing in these new machines and all the new kit together means we have increased capacity which translate into larger runs and being able to be more flexible for our clients.’

Mark Handford, CEO at Pureprint, added, ‘In these extraordinary times, we continue to invest so that we are ready when demand will inevitably increase, enabling us to support our clients’ requirements. We have seen businesses using beautiful print and clever direct mail campaigns to help drive demand. Increasing our finishing kit in house makes our business even more flexible and able to service our client’s requirements.’

Pureprint said that these investments will further enhance the products it can produce in house including personalised on-demand products whilst increasing their capacity, speeding up their production and lowering the operation’s environmental impacts which is a key objective for the business.
