A Cornish printing company has taken delivery of state of the art equipment, as it gears up for life in its new energy-efficient home.
St Austell Printing Company (SAPC), which is behind the £6.2 million St Austell Business Park eco-development at Carclaze, has installed two litho printers, a compactor and a guillotine worth £1.2 million at its new factory, just weeks before the company moves in.
This latest cutting-edge equipment is expected to bring savings of around £50k in paper and ink in the first year, delivering an even better customer experience and reducing waste.
SAPC’s managing director, Peter Moody, said: “It was quite a challenge getting the machines into the new building, and they’ve taken two weeks to put together, but the investment will enhance both our capacity and the quality and speed of service received by customers.”
The new carbon-neutral equipment will also reduce SAPC’s emissions, cut noise pollution and lower energy consumption, reinforcing the company’s green credentials.
SAPC’s print manager, Steve Mattey, has been coordinating training on the new presses.
He said: “The print staff here are keen to get started.
“The new kit is quicker, quieter, more efficient and produces remarkable quality print – we can’t wait to show customers just what it can do.”
