Finishing comes into focus at The Color Company

Cheltenham magazine and commercial printer The Color Company is investing in new finishing equipment, taking delivery of a Stahlfolder BH 56 in March and a Muller Martini stitching line. Both replace Horizon systems.

The new equipment will enable the company to respond to the rapid turnaround time required in the magazine publishing market.

There is centralised control from a touchscreen to ensure fast set up and accurate folding with perfect sheet alignment across a range of stocks.
"We like to be in the forefront of the latest technology and the purchase of this new equipment will afford us this opportunity This investment will prevent bottlenecks and make us even more efficient. Staff will be trained and will quickly adapt to the new automation," says Ashley Wainwright, managing director. "Some customers require 24 hour turnround from start to finish and so we need reliable technology to meet that.need."
The company at present operates a shift system five days a week but frequently runs overtime at the weekends, particularly at month ends to accommodate mainly magazine deadlines.
