Curtis Packaging has had a specific investment strategy in place for the last five years
Curtis Print & Packaging has had a specific investment strategy in place for the last five years. In 2013 the company invested in a state of the art 6 colour CX102 Heidelberg press, having recently installed a Heiber & Schroeder window patching machine to boost its finishing capabilities further.
Managing Director, James Williams commented "The decision to invest in a window patcher was a relatively easy considering the amount of money we spend with external suppliers. Deciding on the right supplier was the difficult part. Eventually we agreed on the Heiber & Schroeder machine as we were very impressed with the make ready speeds as well as the flexibility the machine had to offer." Williams added, "We were delighted with the way our enquiry was handled and pleased to have purchased from a European supplier as we believe the technical support will be first class”.
The Heiber & Schroeder machine will now strengthen the finishing proficiency further, enabling Curtis to offer customers a comprehensive range of in-house finishing services. It also offers advanced packaging prototyping and sampling capabilities with the purchase of a Fuji Acuity LED 1600 Digital Printing Press. “After successful print trials by the Fuji team at Bedford we made the decision to step into the digital market. The machine provides a fantastic representation of the colour and finish we achieve on press and allows our customers to test drive their packaging before committing to large print runs,” explained James Williams.
The machine can also print on a wide variety of materials with white and spot UV varnishing, giving customers the added advantage of being able to see fully finished samples.
