Print firm prepares for expansion

Having already achieved a 10% increase in turnover for the same period of operation last year, Southwold print firm Micropress is preparing for a period of expansion.

Micropress is due to install the Speedmaster XL 106 feeder next month

Having secured planning permission for a 16,000sq ft paper warehouse, the company is set to install a new push-to-stop concept Speedmaster XL 106-8P with Autoplate XL and Inpress Control.

The push-to-stop concept allows operators to let the machine run autonomously, moving from job to job, stepping in only to rotate a job or to change settings.

According to Micropress, the firm was the first company in the UK to use Inpress Control and speaks highly of the benefits of its online colour and register control system.

James Cross, production director of Micropress explains: “With the latest generation version Inpress Control and Autoplate XL we know the press will brilliantly keep colour consistent and improve makeready times.

“These are crucial tools for productivity and service and the short makereadies and quick turnarounds mean our prices remain competitive.”

The company, which produces a range of leaflets, magazines and catalogues in a range of formats and paper stocks, expects its current 80-20% split between B1 and B2 production to sway slightly in favour of B1 following the installation.

To keep up with the growth of business, Micropress plans to replace its machines every seven to eight years to ensure it runs to maximum efficiency and remains at the forefront of technology.
