Tamar Labels has installed a new flexo press as it bids to boost businesss and target new markets

The Devon based label printer has bought a Mark Andy LP3000 430mm eight-colour UV Flexo press. The machine will sit alongside Tamar’s existing fleet of Edale narrow web flexo and Nilpeter eight-colour UV flexo presses and HP Indigo digital label presses.

Tamar operations director Ricky Hann (pictured) said: “With the inline foil and screen capability on the LP3000 we saw it as a giant leap forward to be able to enhance the range of premium quality labels that we can provide, and we were right. Just having this press has already opened the doors to new markets for the production of luxury and other primary product labels in sectors such as packaging, cosmetics, and healthcare.”

Managing director Robert Lee added: “Our growth strategy has thus far been heavily based around company acquisitions. Last year we acquired the assists of the Irish label convertor LabelIt which provided a bounty of European based contracts into hitherto new market sectors.

“Now we’re looking to consolidate our production capabilities with an aggressive companywide reinvestment strategy that will include investments in new speciality coating lines, along with improvements to workflow solutions that will serve to deliver greater flexibility on how we operate as a business.”
