APS Group has followed its installation of two Bowe Fusion Speed inserting lines in 2022 with investment in a further six of the systems in order to enclose and mail critical customer communications on behalf of the UK government.

Following investment in Q4 2023, the new inserting lines – which are capable of handling 30,000 packs an hour – will be installed across APS Group’s Preston Brook and Cheadle print and mail centres.

Steve Goodall, group operations director at APS, said: “Our state-of-the-art facilities located at Preston Brook and Cheadle have been purposefully designed for maximum efficiency, ensuring that our clients receive the best possible service.

“We are thrilled about the capabilities of our latest technology investment, as it will further enhance our clients’ confidence in us to provide them with secure, efficient, and reliable services, especially in times of difficulty.”

APS said the investment builds upon a 20-year trusted business relationship between APS and Bowe, with the Fusion Speed technology delivering predictable high-speed throughput, supported on-site with Bowe performance support personnel.

Steve Basnett, Bowe senior UK account manager, also commented: “Simply put, the numbers speak for themselves. When it comes to delivering consistent high-speed mailing output, the Fusion Speed inserter is unrivalled and APS Group are leveraging this latest advanced technology to efficiently meet the SLAs of their clients.”
