Frip Finishing, a decorative print finisher, has announced that it has installed a second Bobst BMA 126 foiler at its Leicestershire plant

The £500,000 purchase is part of the company’s long- term investment strategy and follows on from the recent £250,000 investment of a Sakurai spot UV line into Frip’s Redditch facility in October.

According to the firm, its new Bobst kit enables  the firm to double its existing large format (1260mm x 920mm) capacity in Hinckley to over 750,000 sheets per week running 6 days a week on a 24 hour basis.  The machine will compliment an existing Bobst 126 BMA and Bobst 102 BMA foilmaster.

Frip group managing director Leslie Gibson said: “Over the past year we have seen significant new demand for our largest sheet size and this investment will provide us with greater flexibility in meeting the need of our customers.

“During the past year we have created three new jobs through the introduction of a third foiling shift and with the arrival of this new Bobst we plan for a further five new staff. The additional staff will enable us to extend our Lamination and Varnishing services in Hinckley into a similar three shift operation.

“In total Frip now operate seven Bobst foilers across the Group giving Frip an unrivalled capacity and ability to respond to high volume immediate delivery requirements of the print, publishing and packaging sectors.”
