Reflex Label Plus Targets Rapid Growth and Expansion with New FA from Nilpeter
Monday, March 19, 2018
Press release from the issuing company
Reflex Label Plus has acquired a new 14-colour FA flexo press from Nilpeter, for its Keighley site in England, to meet customer demands for unique designs, high quality and embellishments, and achieve ambitious business expansion goals.
Initial thoughts – “shelf appeal and wow factor”
“Although our existing press bank is quite comprehensive, there are limits, and we want to future-proof with this new investment – by having many print processes combined to produce complicated labels in one single pass. And also adding additional capacity to cope with our ambitious expansion targets,” he continues.
“Our challenges relate to how many different embellishments we can do in one pass. The new press will alleviate these issues, and save us a lot of time. We are looking to expand this exciting business through innovation – our customers want labels that make their products stand out, and this new investment will enable us to meet and exceed those expectations,” Shaun Hanson explains.
The most versatile flexo press on the market
The new FA is the most versatile flexo press on the market – designed to accommodate the printer’s ever-growing needs, and built around the modern print operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls. The FA allows printers to enhance the performance of their press with Value-Adding Units, Application and Automation Packages, according to application needs and budget. All main components are manufactured in-house at Nilpeter, meaning higher production quality and control.
Opportunities in high-end label production
“Another big factor was support and service, not just from the parent company, but local "feet on the ground" – Nilpeter is the only company to offer 24/7/365 service and support, and they have skilled engineers living locally, frankly ticking all our boxes,” he continues.
“This FA press represents a major investment and a big vote of confidence in the Keighley site, which was acquired by Reflex in 2015. This press will give us both opportunity and capacity for rapid growth in high-end label production,” he concludes.
Group CEO happy to invest
Reflex's new 14-colour FA flexo press from Nilpeter will primarily be used for high-end beverage labels, craft beers, wine, spirits, cosmetics, and high-end combination labels.
