Projects & Print doubles up
Hertfordshire based Projects & Print has recently moved into a new 11,500 sq.ft facility in Tring and, at the same time, acquired a new Anapurna RTR3200i.
A heavy-duty 3.2 metre wide, six colour roll-to-roll UV LED inkjet printer, the Anapurna RTR3200ioutputs top quality indoor and outdoor banners and billboards at speeds up to 127 m²/hr and can be used in conjunction with a wide range of broad scope of flexible media for indoor and outdoor applications. It is complemented by Agfa’s Asanti software, an easy-to-use data management solution, which has been specially designed for wide-format printing and integrates with the latest version of Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE).
When the Projects & Print first invested in an Anapurna M2500i six-colour hybrid printer in 2014, it was already considering a move into larger premises, but it was some time before it found suitable accommodation.
Richard Barrett, the company’s Managing Director, explained: “In the last three years our business has grown by around 50 percent and so there was a real need to increase our available space. Our new facility is twice the size of our old home and big enough to accommodate the 3.2 and 2.5 Anapurna printers, as well as a new cutter and a host of other equipment too. The move was a big step for us, but it has enabled us to becomemuch more productive without having to employ more staff. And now, with the addition of the new Anapurna,the volume of our print output has also increased too.”
The company is a trade supplier to agencies and designers and provides a 24/7 nationwide service producing an extensive range of exhibition, display and signage for companies, such as Network Rail, Samsung, Costa Coffee and the De Vere Hotel Group.
Richard Barrett continued: “Meeting the needs of our clients is our major priority, which has lead to us growing organically, and each year we have made further business investments. During the past few years, we have expanded our services to include building wraps for the construction industry, as well as graphics and signage for interior design agencies. A number of these customers request that our staff attend face-to-face meetings with their clients to provide additional expertise and reassurance on time-pressured projects.”
Chris Parker, Operations Director of Projects & Print, added: “The Anapurna M2500 has always been totally reliable when producing quality results on rigid or flexible material and although the 3.2m RTR Anapurna has only just been installed,it is already making a significant impact by increasing output. Its LED lights offer a much longer working life and the Asanti software manages every job we print, thus helping us to reduce costly mistakes. In addition, Agfa has made colour calibrations to our own requirements so we can print on either machine and achieve exactly the same results.”
Richard Barrett concluded:“We have invested heavily in our business and our clients know they can trust and rely on us in the same way that we rely on Agfa.The build quality of the Anapurna printers is fantastic and Agfa’s service and support is superb – we regard them as first class investments.
