MODEL Group has confirmed is installing an S10 Nanographic digital printing machine in its factory in the Czech Republic.
The new digital printing machine will be used to provide mainstream digital packaging, as well as opening a new ‘just in time’ product offering for the Czech and adjacent markets. Serving some of the world’s biggest brands, the new press will produce high quality packaging jobs at varying run lengths, featuring variable data for local consumer offers, as well as being used to significantly reduce excess inventory and its associated cost and waste.
The investment will further support the company’s ‘all under one roof’ business model – a comprehensive offering including product design, testing, manufacturing, printing, assembly, storage, delivery and even product retrieval.
Josef Chalupny, Chief Operating Officer, MODEL Group Czech Republic, comments, “We had been watching the digital packaging market for many years, specifically looking for a solution to support new JIT services – a potential growth area for us. The press we have chosen offers the right colour gamut and high print quality for us, to support the wide range of products and markets we serve. And that includes everything from FMCG, to pharma, auto and anything in between.”
Chalupny concludes, “As a business, we’re committed to reducing our CO2 footprint. Not only does it have a virtually zero-waste set-up, but it will enable our customers to dramatically reduce their run sizes. This reduces the need for storage of unwanted stock, and the environmental impact of the associated logistical and operational activities used to support that stock.”
