Horizon signs deal for new Durst system at FESPA 2019

Horizon signs deal for new Durst system at FESPA 2019

Horizon, the award-winning digital print and design specialist, used FESPA 2019 to complete the signing of an agreement to purchase a third Durst production system as part of a move to future-proof its fast-growing business in the final stages of a major investment program in Dublin.

 Durst has agreed terms to supply a Durst Rho 1312 fully automated with a Smart4 speed advancement tool that improves speed and productivity by 40 percent. Horizon already has Durst P10 25O HS and Rho 1312 print production systems, which are also automated systems.

Family-owned Horizon is only weeks away from opening an extension to its head office on Navan Road, Dublin, where it has been located for the last 26 years. Having a new facility nearby, yet in a separate unit, ensures the continuation of the company’s disaster recovery planning. This expansion also includes new finishing machinery.

Horizon, which has won accolades in marketing and print awards, was formed more than 30 years ago and employs over 80 staff. With a design and print hub, it specialises in retail, POS, outdoor advertising and interactive digital in Ireland and works for a cross-section of clients, including blue chip companies.

Tony Gillen, a Director at Horizon, said: “Our decision to once again partner with Durst was an easy one. The Durst 1312 Automate is state of the art and will increase our capacity significantly. The consistency of the Durst printer ensures there are no colour variations in print runs from start to finish and, in terms of colour matching, the Durst matches the Pantone spectrum more accurately than any other machine in its class.”

He added: “We pride ourselves on our ability to react to our customers’ needs without compromising on quality, something which is the cornerstone of our business model. The team at Durst provides us with the confidence to develop our business further, as it offers excellent service and support, which in turn enables us to meet our clients’ needs.”
