‘There are significant opportunities for our customers in the market for short-run, high-quality labels,’ commented David Lee, director of Focus Label Machinery. ‘Whilst we have always been at the cutting edge of technology, we felt there was something missing from our portfolio that specifically caters for customers that are entering the label market or are embracing digital. The Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 230 provides the perfect balance, allowing smaller label printers to service the market and enabling businesses that may have outsourced these requirements before to bring production in-house.’

Designed to help a broad range of commercial printers to migrate and broaden their output to labelling and packaging, the AccurioLabel 230 doesn’t require highly trained engineers onsite to maintain or run it. Focus Label Machinery’s expertise in finishing technology also means that customers can buy their printing and finishing solutions from a single source with full expert technical support.

Antony Cotton, sales manager at Focus Labels Machinery, commented: ‘We have a strong bond of trust with our customers, so it is vital that we partner with manufacturers that share our commitment to customer support and deliver excellent solutions that match our customers’ needs. The AccurioLabel 230 is simple to operate and quiet, you can easily achieve excellent quality and it's highly affordable compared to the alternatives. This is a great opportunity for our label print customers to get a high-quality digital label press that's easy to operate without breaking the bank.’

‘We are very excited to be working in partnership with Focus Labels Machinery,’ said Jon Pritchard, label and inkjet consultant at Konica Minolta Business Solutions UK. ‘Sharing our technology strengths with its considerable expertise, close customer relationships, and a reputation for excellence, together we can offer customers even greater choice and class-leading service to support the immense opportunities for commercial printers. We want to be the leading supplier of digital label solutions and this partnership is a key component of our broader strategy to achieve this, delivering the next generation of technology married to unbeatable customer service.’
