Print and mail specialist CFH Docmail has increased its digital capacity nearly three-fold in less than a year after buying eight Xerox digital production printing devices.
Between August and December 2013 the firm invested in two Xerox iGen presses, three Xerox Colour 8250 Production Printers, two Xerox Nuvera 314 EA Perfecting Production Systems and a Xerox Nuvera 144 MX Digital Production System. The machines were installed across its three printing sites in Radstock, Livingston and Slough.
The £2m investment has enabled CFH Docmail to reduce its costs and produce high quality short to medium digital print runs. The company now has one of the largest iGen fleets in the UK.
CFH Docmail managing director Dave Broadway said: “We had to increase our capacity after winning a lot of new business. We did look at one or two alternatives but Xerox was a fairly easy decision because we already have a fairly comprehensive Xerox fleet.”
The firm modified its Radstock factory to increase the size of the protected room it has for iGen kit. It also relocated some of its stock from Slough to Radstock to create additional space.
CFH Docmail has 312 employees and a turnover of £30m, with a projected turnover of £40m next year as a result of the new work that it has taken on.
The company’s Docmail service allows customers to create and upload documents including letters, invoices, postcards and greetings cards that are then printed and posted out.
“The iGen’s are primarily used for Docmail production but we now also produce work for airline maps at our Slough plant,” said Broadway.
