Latest machine investments make it a BOBST hat-trick at Simply Cartons

May 20, 2020 Off By Sebastian Reisig

Specialist print and packaging manufacturer, Simply Cartons, has invested in a second EXPERTCUT 106 PER Autoplaten® die-cutter and MASTERFOLD 110 A3 MATIC multipurpose folder-gluer following a strong period of growth.

The two machines follow the installation of an EXPERTCUT 106 PER Autoplaten® in 2018, shortly after the company opened the doors to its new 31,000 sq ft production facility in Nottingham.

Paul Elston, Director at Simply Cartons, said: “We deliver unique and novel solutions to our customers, but this can only be achieved if we are operating efficiently and with the best equipment available for the job. After looking at several alternatives for the folder-gluer, we felt the BOBST MASTERFOLD 110 A3 MATIC and a second EXPERTCUT 106 PER offered the best overall solution to help us fulfil our wider business ambitions.

“There is a tremendous need for reducing downtime in the industry,” he commented. “At the same time, quality and efficiency cannot be compromised. It became crucial for the future success of the company that we could achieve on all these points and remain competitive.”

The carton manufacturer works with leading brands and retailers in health and beauty, confectionery, beverage, food and gifting. Since its first BOBST investment, the company has focussed on developing new business opportunities thanks to the greater flexibility, capacity, quality and efficiency that the EXPERTCUT delivers.

The newest assets have only served to enhance the company’s capabilities further, providing customers with even better service, faster turnaround times and ensuring they have a supplier which has full control and understanding of its manufacturing processes. Since the installation of the second EXPERTCUT 106 PER the finishing department is now producing the output previously achieved by four machines with just two.
