Colour Graphics invests in quality

Durst has supplied a Rho P10 250 HS 10-picolitre UV inkjet system to Colour Graphics in a move that will bring in new business and ramp up turnover by 25 percent during the coming year.

Family-owned Colour Graphics, which is primarily a trade printer, signed the deal after its executives visited Durst’s manufacturing base in Lienz, Tyrol, Austria, which is less than two hours from the company’s headquarters in Brixen, northern Italy.

Now, the quality, productivity and reliability benefits of the Rho P10 are helping to grow business opportunities since it was installed at the Colour Graphics’ headquarters in Walsall in the Midlands. Faster turnaround for work in areas such as banner stands for exhibitions and events, poster printing and other sign and outdoor displays are all now benefiting its clients.

James Birch, one of the company’s directors who has worked for Colour Graphics since leaving school, said: “We’re always looking for ideas on how we can expand into new areas. Investing in new technology, such as the Durst P10, is a perfect way to show our capabilities as we continue to broaden our repertoire to include e-commerce and use workflow software developed in-house. Clients are always impressed when you can demonstrate that you really care about quality.

“Durst invited us to Lienz and we were so taken with the efficacy of the P10 and the company itself, that investing was a no-brainer. Everything is going really well and the machine’s speed, quality and reliability are all fantastic. It was up and running within two days of delivery and we’ve never looked back. It takes our business to another level.”

Colour Graphics, which employs a staff of 18 staff and has a £2million turnover, specialises in the production of large format retail point of sale materials, exhibition graphics, plus agency and retail work, in addition to its trade service.

The Durst P10 increases capacity and flexibility for Colour Graphics across all areas and has also opened up new opportunities, such as the production of lightboxes using backlit fabric, end-user canvases, wallpaper and art reproductions.

Colour Graphics has chosen a six-colour configuration, including white under and over, plus spot gloss, as well as an advanced application for hapt printing and a roll-to-roll option. The new machine will also be used to print onto foamex, acrylic, correx, self-adhesive vinyl and also all backlit applications. However, larger roll-to-roll jobs will continue to be produced on Colour Graphics’ existing Durst three-metre machine.
