Civica Election Services has invested in a second Bowe Fusion mail inserter in a strategic move to further streamline and optimise operations at its North London-based production plant.

The business, which provides election management services, started live production on its first Fusion machine from Bowe at the end of 2020.

The new Fusion Lite, which will support the company’s commitment to delivering efficient and timely electoral communications, is due to complete installation in February.

“At Bowe, we are thrilled to announce that Civica have purchased their second Bowe Fusion mail inserter,” said Adrian Mills, UK account manager for Bowe Systec UK.

“Their investment reflects their ongoing commitment to providing an increased level of excellence to their clients and ensures that they continue to meet the growing demands of their business whilst maintaining the highest standards of efficiency and quality.”

The Fusion Lite is Bowe’s 16,000 packs an hour version of its stable of Fusion inserters that comprise three variants – Speed, Cross, and Lite. The highly customisable machines all share the unique patented ‘Flow-Principle’ digital inserting engine.

Civica Election Services has more than a century’s experience of administering elections, ballots, and consultation processes and designs, prints, and mails millions of voting packs each month.
