The Leicester-based printing company’s two Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 presses, installed just over a year ago, have been working flat out since the start of the COVID-19 crisis to support customers, and in the process more than tripled output.
“The reliability of our two AccurioLabel presses has certainly been tested to the max in the past two months,” said Soabar Managing Director Phil Achurch. “We have seen demand for digital labels go through the roof, and if it wasn’t for the Konica Minolta machines, we would have struggled to support our customers during this difficult time.”
Most of the label jobs printed during the crisis are for existing clients who produce hand sanitisers, disinfectants, chlorine tablets and other hygiene products for the health sector. To meet this unprecedented level of demand, Soabar has also increased the running speed of the AccurioLabel presses in effect now giving them the capacity of three machines.
