CFH invests £1.4m in expansion
Wednesday, August 7, 2013
CFH has invested £1.4m in a raft of Xerox equipment to boost output and services at two of its print and mail sites.
The spend at its main Radstock site includes two new mono Nuvera 314EA duplexing digital presses with integrated Plus Finishing Solution for personalised booklet manufacturing and a Nuvera 144MX digital press with a Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) facility for cut sheet cheque fulfilment. The equipment was installed a fortnight ago and replaces two older models.
Additionally an iGen 150, which is due to be installed next month following building modifications, will add to Radstock’s exisiting iGen, doubling the site’s digital colour capacity
Meanwhile the business took delivery of an iGen4 at its Livingston, Scotland site two weeks ago, boosting digital colour output, and is set to receive a duplexing Nuvera 288EA mono digital press and a DP4635MX MICR printer for cut-sheet cheque fulfillment in the coming weeks.
Managing director Dave Broadway: "The investments provide synergy between the two sites and mean that the business can roll out our Downstream Access service, Docmail, in Scotland.
"We are very involved with the Federation of Small Businesses in Scotland and by commencing Docmail production we will provide major cost savings for a lot of small firms as well as business continuity and disaster recovery solutions."
Broadway said that he anticipated, with the additional output, adding to the 25-strong Livingston workforce in the near future.
Formerly FST Technologies, the Livingston transactional mail facility was bought out of administration by CFH in October 2011 and is currently being rebranded as CFH Scotland.
In April this year, the business became the second company in Scotland to be awarded cheque printing accreditation.
