Springfield Solutions has unveiled its £1.3m #PrintWorks expansion, which has doubled the size of the company's digital print operation.
The investment at the company’s headquarters in Thomas Street, Hull, takes the entire building footprint from 20,000ft² to more than 26,000ft².
Printing capacity has increased by 30% due to a new Screen Truepress L350UV ink jet digital press and two new finishing lines from AB Graphics International, bringing the company's total operation to five digital presses.
The company increased its capacity to 140 million and 175 million in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
The expansion was possible by taking over the building adjacent to Springfield Solution’s existing print room, increasing its production footprint by 100%.
With the latest expansion, the company says that it can print millions of more labels and improve lead times for print and brand management customers.
Springfield Solutions joint managing director, Dennis Ebeltoft said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be unveiling our new #PrintWorks digital print room, which heralds the next chapter in Springfield Solution’s incredible story.
“#PrintWorks is the culmination of many things: a history of innovation across all divisions of the business and special thank you to our sister company Eon Visual Media for their role in that; fantastic loyal staff, many of whom go above and beyond every day, constantly striving for improvement in everything that we do, and all our business partners that have assisted us on our journey.
“These are the values that have fuelled our growth over recent years, and ultimately led to the opening of our #PrintWorks development.”
Dennis said: “The development will enable us to continue our journey of growth and gain market share.
“Having more digital presses also means we have more capacity, consistency and continuity allowing us to innovate and push the boundaries of what digital print can do, and that is great news for our clients and the industry as a whole.”
