Another VUTEk at Northern Print to meet customer demand for wide format printing

Merseyside-based Northern Print has boosted its fleet of EFI VUTEk printers with a new HS100Pro UV printer from wide format print specialists CMYUK. The move follows increased demand for wide format digital print from both existing and new clients.

Director Richard Parker explains: "We needed to make this investment so we could guarantee the capacity needed when we took on extra work. We were already running at full tilt, and had to have a reliable machine to help smooth out the peaks in demand without compromising our existing work.

"As well as giving us the extra capacity that we needed, the HS100Pro offers an incredible flexibility on substrates, and we can use it for sheets, boards, rolls, back lit panels, and a whole range of indoor and outdoor POS, both single and double sided. Basically, with our VUTEk printers and our litho arm, we can handle pretty much any print request that comes our way.”

Parker, who has been in the print business since 1989, set up Northern Print originally as a print management company in 2000. He says that this changed quickly, as "it just didn't sit right, being a print distributor rather than a manufacturer.”

He added: "I've bought VUTEks for the last nine years and to be honest I wouldn't really consider anything else. With the EFI badge I know that we're going to get speed and reliability, and the ability to handle a wide range of substrates. Being able to print white at the same time is also hugely beneficial.”
