Sprinters switches to Fuji Pro-T plates in environmental push


Sprinters London has overhauled its platesetter operation by switching to Fujifilm Brillia HD Pro-T plates in a bid to eliminate chemistry from its platemaking.

The Brentford-based printer handles work for companies including Kew Gardens and Innocent Drinks and produces a range of material including folders, brochures and postcards.

Sprinters director Vince Brackley said the shift to Pro-T was driven by the environmental benefits processless plates offered.

He said getting rid of chemistry and chemical processes entirely "is good for the environment and for us. Installing Pro-T has added another string to our environmental bow."

The ISO 14001 accredited firm prints on a variety of eco-friendly stock including Revive recycled and Greencoat using its litho and digital presses.

Brackley added the company's customers "were asking more and more to see our environmental credentials".

The 15-staff firm, established in 1982, outputs plates on its Screen PT R4100 platesetter, which was installed in 2003.
