Following the completion of our recent £1million investment in new equipment and the creation of an additional manufacturing facility, we are thrilled to announce our overall production capacity has doubled from 80 million to 160 million cards per year.

We strive to lead the way in the plastic card market, and are always looking for ways to reinvest and innovate so we can continue to offer the very best possible products and service to our customers, which is why our new unit has been kitted out with a range of high specification equipment including; a Bürkle Smartlam CHK100/200 laminator, a HP Indigo 5900 seven-colour digital press, and a fully automatic Col-Tec Sheet Collator, for accurately assembling the various elements that make up a card and a MicroPOISE MK2 hot foil stamping machine.

The flexibility offered in terms of sheet size with the Bürkle laminator means we can utilise it for both our litho and digital work improving on lead times and capacity. The quality and consistency of print, and the flexibility of materials including an Eco-degradable alternative to standard PVC that can be utilised with the Indigo press is second to none.

Existing machinery includes a five-colour KBA Genius 52 UV waterless offset press, a Svecia screen press with UV bridge and a range of Oasys finishing kit.
