Craig & Parsons invests in fourth Edale machine

Label and packaging printer Craig & Parsons has invested in its fourth Edale Beta machine

The Kent-based firm said that it installed their first machine back in 1999.

Stephen Craig, production manager of Craig & Parsons said: “We purchased our first Edale in 1999 and this new press will be our fourthEdale Beta 330. This is the first press that we have opted for water based and UV drying because we are producing more long run printed labels.

“We have already seen a dramatic increase in our productivity due to the decrease in down time in wash ups and cleaning of plates on the run. We find the Beta a great press because of its ability to be adapted and modified to suit any new enquiries that come in. All of our press’s have had quite major upgrades over the years by Edale and these have all been done in house with very little downtime and disruption to the production.”

Craig and Parsons were established in 1945 by Cyril & Win Craig- initially as a wholesale chemist – with the labelling division started up by their son Nigel in 1970.

The company specialise in the production of printed labels for a wide range of sectors – and decided upon another Edale Beta 330mm wide press to allow them to cope with their enhanced workload which new business has brought in.

Craig & Parsons managing director Nigel Craig said: “When the need for a new machine arose, we did visit Label Expo Europe and had a look at machines from other manufacturers – but nothing jumped out at us.

“As we have always had a good relationship with Edale there was really no contest or sway to go elsewhere. We find the price of the Beta is also a lot more competitive than other manufacturers.”
