Kolorcraft, one of the UK’s largest designers and producers of point of sale for brands and retailers, has invested more than £600,000 in automated print finishing equipment, including two new machines from Bickers that will offer unprecedented speed, accuracy, strength and cost efficiency in constructing more complex displays.
Historically, the POS industry has relied on conventional hand-glueing to bond individual elements of items such as free-standing display units and counter-top displays for retailers and brands. The new TAPEJET® machine is the first of its kind in the UK and provides accurate, rapid application of a wide range of speciality tapes of all widths, while the GLUEJET® combines hot melt and cold PVA to provide fast, accurate and durable bonds.
Managing Director Phil Findley (pictured), said: “Automating our glueing and taping functions will drive our efficiency and service up a further notch by reducing lead times and costs, while adding strength means we can continue to push the boundaries when it comes to creating and producing stand-out concepts and in-store theatre.”
The TAPEJET® and GLUEJET® machines are both manufactured in Germany. This is the latest in a series of major investments from Kolorcraft. The company recently invested £1 million in two new high-performance wide-format digital presses from Durst.
Based in Ossett for more than 35 years, Kolorcraft employs more than 200 people working around the clock to provide award-winning in-store design, print and display solutions for blue-chip brands, high-street and out-of-town retail customers.
Kolorcraft’s premises houses nearly 200,000 square feet of production and warehousing space providing multi-process print production including large format litho, wide format, flat-bed and reel-to-reel, along with small format digital print and large format screen process.
