Nationwide Print in St Austell has announced its intentions of further growth and expansion this year, with the purchase of three new pieces of high performing kit and associated software; a total investment of over £200,000.
The award-winning SME and green energy pioneer has purchased a brand-new Duplo booklet maker and perfect binding machine, and a Morgana creaser, folder and perforator – all of which will help the firm keep up with orders from current clients as well as attract new business in the year ahead.
Managing Director, Julian Hocking, explained the reasons behind the recent purchases, saying:
“The new equipment will allow us to produce a wide variety of booklets and books with improved speed and efficiency, to an extremely high standard. The machines will integrate perfectly with our existing litho and digital printers, and are extremely versatile pieces of kit.”
The arrival of these top-of-the-range machines and software reflects sustained growth at Nationwide Print, which counts the Eden Project, St Austell Brewery and Made For Life Organics amongst its local customers, alongside global brands including Armani and Rolex.
As Julian explained, print still forms an important part of the marketing mix for his clients:
“The firms we work with are extremely adept in all forms of digital marketing, yet they return to print to reinforce their brand. For example, when browsing luxury watches or choosing a special spa treatment, customers still like to hold a high-quality, beautifully designed brochure in their hands.”
Nationwide Print has withstood tough times for the printing industry thanks to Julian’s mantra of innovation and investment, plus his focus on environmental sustainability.
The firm’s green credentials mean that the site on the Holmbush Industrial Estate actually generates more energy than it consumes through a combination of solar panels, efficient lighting, exterior cladding and other energy-saving measures; an impressive achievement for such an energy-hungry operation.
The future looks bright at Nationwide Print and the new machines – run on clean energy – look set to be busy for many years to come.
