Willenhall, West Midlands, 3rd October 2016 – As their third CX3 leading edge digital printer arrived recently for installation on the shop floor, CS Labels announces further information about its expansion.

The third CX3 digital printer enables CS to print more square meterage per hour in order to fulfil ever increasing demand as well as further improve efficiency. The company are also making some major improvements to their finishing capabilities and as well as augmenting and upgrading existing technology to enable the company to make further advances in the flexible packaging market.  A brand new Grafisk Maskinfabrik in-line foiling, embossing and spot varnishing machine has been commissioned to offer even more embellishment capabilities to client label projects. In addition their existing Xeikon 3300 ICE digital press has undergone a bespoke upgrade to enable wider media at the lower fusing temperature, as the company branches out further into the pouches and soon-to-be officially launched carton sectors.

Additionally the company has also boosted their sales capacity with the recruitment of three internal sales support staff, maintaining their already high levels of customer service and expert client advice.

CS  Labels are currently aiming for a target turnover of £5m and beyond and this investment will support that as they continue to fulfil the ever growing demand for digital labels and stand-up pouches.  Both sectors have increased exponentially as longer digital print runs eat further into the traditional flexographic and rotogravure markets and CS are at the forefront of both markets. The company has won several awards for its work on innovation and printing capabilities and have been nominated for more gongs this year. CS are in the running for two awards in this years’Flexotech competition for their outstanding work with Northern Monk Brewery and Winchester Distillery. The work they did with Northern Monk has also been nominated in the labels category in the 2016 Digital Printer Awards. They have also been shortlisted for the revered PrintWeek ‘Label Printer of the Year’ accolade which takes place next month.

Talking about the announcement, MD Simon Smith said: “As always we like to push the boundaries to stay on top of our game. Anything we do is never without challenge and I am proud of the team around me who work tirelessly so we can continue to delight our customers.”
