Director James Kinsella said: “Over the past year there has been a steady increase in the amount of folded work that requires a fast turnaround, and this concentration made us review our procedures to ensure that in addition to providing this capability we also continued to maintain the consistent high quality that we are renowned for.
“On reviewing what equipment was currently available, we very quickly decided that the Palamides was the perfect solution. Since installation that has proved to be the case, with the two machines producing quality stacked blocks with consistent heights which aids easier packing into boxes.”
As part of the Bluetree Design & Print Group, Route 1 Print specialises in delivering high quality, low cost print to trade re-sellers such as graphic designers, marketing agencies and copy shops. Following its rapid growth in 2015 the company moved to a new production hub comprising 100,000 sq m in Rotherham, North Yorkshire in order to accommodate its success.
Aiming to maintain this forward momentum, Route 1 Print continues to invest heavily in the latest digital, offset, pre-press and finishing technologies, as well as its service, allowing it to add value to its customers’ businesses.
“We have the facilities and automated technology at Route 1 Print to turn jobs around in minimum timeframes, from brief to fulfilment, and can cater for both large format Digital and small format Litho/Digital production,” said Kinsella.
“We are always looking for ways to offer more competitive prices and better value to our customers, and the fact that the two Palamides stackers can work at full tilt with the need for only one operator at each is really helping us to achieve the cost-effectiveness necessary to realise this aim in the finishing aspect of the production process.”
The equipment was supplied by UK & Ireland agent, Friedheim International.
