UK-based Aztec Label has confirmed an investment in a Nilpeter FB3300 4-color label printing press to expand production capacity at its Kidderminster facility.
With four Nilpeter flexo presses now on site, Aztec Label has extensive label converting capabilities printing up to 10 colors in both UV flexo and water-based inks alongside laminating, cold foiling, perforation, slot punching, and undercutting, backed by four other presses, including a plain label machine and a digital Trojan T4.
‘Despite the challenges of the global pandemic and lockdown, we have continued to experience record sales at Aztec,’ commented Colin Le Gresley, managing director of Aztec Label. ‘The industry is very busy responding to the shifting needs of brands and the consumer demand volatility that has been unprecedented in recent months.
‘This further Nilpeter investment provides us with significant additional capacity to respond to our customers quickly and with the quality, we have become known for. It also futureproofs the business along with the recent extension to our warehousing facilities. Having recently launched a new website to showcase what we can do today, I’m confident Aztec has an exciting year ahead.’
The Nilpeter FB3300 is designed to produce value-added labels at high speeds with several technology advancements incorporated into the design, enhancing Aztec’s productivity and capabilities.
