Netherlands based printer DEKALU doubles capacity with Acuity F flatbed

Based in the town of Winterswijk in the east of the Netherlands, family-run printer, DEKALU, has doubled production capacity and seen output soar after adding an Acuity F wide format flatbed printer to its production suite. 

Specialising in POS and signage for the retail sector, including the production of a range of added value creative applications such as lenticular posters and displays, DEKALU has a broad customer base in both the Netherlands and Germany.

Pand resizedDEKALU saw the potential to grow its business with its existing customers, as well as bringing in new clients - if it could find a way to significantly step up productivity. Company owner, Jeroen Rengelink explains: "Quality has always been vital to our customers, but we've found recently that speed of delivery is becoming just as important. The delivery times our customers are demanding of us are getting shorter all the time and we realised that we needed to find a way to significantly boost our production speed in order to fulfil all the potential work that was coming our way.

"We were running two Fujifilm Acuity Select HS flatbed printers, and as we've enjoyed an excellent relationship with Fujifilm since the first of those presses was installed in 2009, it was natural that we would look to continue to work with the company. In the Acuity F, Fujifilm was able to provide the perfect platform for us to make the necessary step up in productivity." 

And six months on from installation, the Acuity F has done just that. "We've more than doubled our production capacity," says Rengelink. "And we've grown our business to fill that new capacity. The speed with which we can turn jobs around now is extraordinary, and the investment has enabled us to take on a huge amount of fast turnaround work that we simply could not have delivered in time a year ago."

And, importantly for DEKALU, quality has not been compromised in the process: "Our customers already respected the reliable high quality of our Acuity HS printers," Rengelink explains. "But they've told us that if anything, the quality of print produced on the Acuity F is even greater. We couldn't be happier with it and the continuing high level of support that we are getting from the Fujifilm team in the Netherlands."
