FaberExposize UK and Northern Flags Expand Their Print Might With New Agfa UV Printer
Leeds-based FaberExposize UK and sister company Northern Flags welcomed a new Jeti Tauro H3300 printer this week as the firm expands further into UV rigid and roll to roll products. This is done alongside the recent dye sublimation expansion with the new Agfa Avinci that arrived in December bringing them a total of three high capacity dye sublimation machines. The new Jeti Tauro machinery allows FaberExposize UK to increase its in-house capabilities to cater to the growing demand for ‘just in time’ production that does not compromise customer expectations on quality or budget.
The arrival of the Jeti Tauro H3300 was a challenge as the enormous body of the printer, its components, and the logistics equipment had to be transported via four articulated lorries. This is the fastest wide format printer purchased by FaberExposize UK and Northern Flags with up to 453m² an hour output.
Iain Clasper-Cotte, Managing Director of FaberExposize UK said of the investment:
“This is the 10th wide format printer we have invested in over the past 6 years and is undoubtedly the fastest. We already operated 2 Annapurna UV printers but as we have grown our Rigid and Vinyl business through COVID when the demand for fabric collapsed, we needed some extra firepower to keep up with our expansion and the demand for environmentally friendly substrates.”
The Leeds factory expansion will create job opportunities for print enthusiasts of all experience levels within the Yorkshire region as the company continues to reshore substantial amounts of print historically produced abroad.
Over the past year, FaberExposize UK has been recognized at several Awards ceremonies winning awards for its ‘Action Now’ planet-saving initiative. This supports businesses in the Event, Construction, Retail, and Exhibition sectors in their transition to environmentally friendly display solutions.
