Unifiedpost Group has invested in a letter sorter from Bowe Systec UK to support its growth strategy and ensure capacity is available for increasing volumes of same-day document processing.

The company, which provides businesses with multichannel communications to create simple and smart admin and finance processes, installed the machine this spring.

Installed at its production centre in Manchester, the device marks its first investment in advanced letter sorting technology.

The machine can process up to 36,000 DL letters per hour to 64 sort bins, which have been set-up in a single tier, two-sided configuration with integrated tray drawers to achieve the best output in a small footprint of just over 15 metres long.

Unifiedpost group operations director Mike Howells said: “By researching the market, we found that with 53 letter sorting systems installed across 16 UK customers, we took the decision to work with Bowe Systec UK as it was clear they were the go-to provider for letter sortation in the UK.

“Our customers trust us with time-critical transactional communications which we often have to print and mail within hours of receiving the data. Expanding our mail sortation and consolidation capacity ensures we continue to meet demand and do it efficiently.”

Bowe Systec UK account manager Adrian Latham added: ”We are delighted Bowe Systec UK were chosen by Unifiedpost Group to supply and install their new letter sorter and to work in partnership with them to fulfil the growing demands of their customer requirements.”

Brussels-headquartered Unifiedpost Group established its presence in the UK market for the first time in late 2019, following its acquisition of Prime Document. Manchester-based Prime Document was renamed to Unifiedpost UK, with its premises becoming Unifiedpost Group’s UK main office.

The UK operation ranked in Printweek’s annual Top 500 survey with sales of just over £4m.
