Positive ID expects turnover boost with Screen

Labels expert Positive ID Labels has revealed its recent installation of a pre-owned Truepress Jet L350UV is likely to increase turnover by around 20%.

Positive ID Labels, which specialises in pricing gun label production, has expanded its digital offering to customers to three digital printers with the Truepress Jet L350UV, in a move it says brings the business closer to its goal of becoming a one-stop label shop.  

The machine is currently running at 10 hours per week, but the goal is to reach enough jobs to have it fully automatised and running eight hours a day by Christmas.

Positive ID’s managing director John Mayers comments: “We’d be very happy to get to 12 hours per day somewhere next year, which would mean our turnover should increase to £3m [up from £2.5m].

“Digital and flexo both equally represent 30% of our turnover, and we will still need the analogue technology for the big runs. Last week, for instance, we produced seven pallets of labels for a single customer. 

“But in five years, digital will be the dominant part of our turnover. All our new customers are already starting with digital, as it’s just a simpler and quicker offering, with better quality.”
