MPH boosts platemaking with new Esko CDI investment

MPH Ltd has underlined its commitment to excellence and doubled its flexo plate production with the addition of a new Esko CDI flexo plate imaging unit at its Essex facility.

Ian Runacres, Director, MPH, said, “With the addition of a second CDI Spark imager we’re supercharging our plate production capabilities, immediately doubling our capacity for top-notch plate manufacturing. This investment aligns seamlessly with our dedication to delivering high-quality flexographic printing solutions with increased efficiency and precision.”

Founded in 1982, MPH started out as a prepress artwork studio and platemaking business. Following a management buyout of the business in 2020, the entire facility relocated to a factory space along the River Stour in Manningtree, Essex.

“Following our recent investment in a brand new Vianord Engineering flexographic plate processor, the integration of this second Esko CDI imager into our production is a testament to our ongoing efforts to enhance our processes and deliver unparalleled results to our clients,” said Runacres. “Our philosophy has always been to keep at the cutting edge of development and this latest investment enables us to offer our customers the best technology to meet market demand. We are committed to staying at the forefront of technology, and this newest installation brings our total investment to nearly half a million pounds since 2020 alone.”
