Nationwide Print in St Austell has announced the arrival of new state of the art presses, laminators and digital printing technology, after significant investment in equipment.
The arrival of new machines reflects healthy trade at the Cornish family business. MD, Julian Hocking, said: “The new equipment will allow us to continue to exceed the expectations of our clients in terms of quality and efficiency, but it will also help to future-proof the business for some time in a dynamic industry which is always evolving.”
The new kit includes a P8000 Epson for large format posters and banners, a new B1 Laminator for longer-run printing tasks, and a new digital Ricoh 7100 press.
A custom-built digital room has been constructed to accommodate this machine alongside the existing Ricoh digital kit, creating a specialist centre for new printing technology.
The company, which has been in Hocking’s family since the 1930s, has withstood tough times for the printing industry thanks to constant innovation, investment and a willingness to embrace new technology.
Hocking added: “With continued investment in new technology as well as staff training, and our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, I believe that Nationwide Print will still be employing local people in skilled jobs for many years to come.”
