SATO UK has announced an investment of over £1 million in new production capabilities at its recently opened Harwich site.
The firm has installed Mark Andy Performance Series P3 and P5 6-colour presses to support expansion in fully printed and plain labels.
Jason Wise, general manager of SATO UK said, “We already had Mark Andy equipment on site as they are an approved global SATO supplier, but the business has been expanding and we felt that having complementary lines from the same machine partner would make sense. The Performance Series of presses offers us high-speed changeovers, cost efficient production and the high-quality output that our customers demand. Of course, having the same press technology also ensures our operators can multi-task across the lines maximising our flexibility and efficiency.”
Sam Adams, service director at Mark Andy Europe added, “We were delighted to work with the SATO team and the installation went smoothly. The P3 & P5 presses enable SATO to deliver consistent high-quality label printing with a short web path to minimise waste in job changeovers. With sustainability front of mind in the print and labels industry, this was a particularly important feature as well as the immediate registration capability and instinctive operator functionality.”
