Antalis has effectively established itself as a packaging manufacturer by installing a Zund G3 L-2300 at its head office in Coalville. The machine - a dual module cut and crease cutting table featuring a maximum cutting size of 1800mm x 3200mm - means Antalis can now create samples on-site to show customers how their packaging will look, while bespoke packaging samples can be turned around in 24 hours.
John Garner, head of business development for packaging at Antalis, said: “This is a significant investment in the future of our packaging division, which will essentially establish Antalis as a packaging manufacturer and gives customers the peace of mind of knowing all their packaging needs can be taken care of under one roof. In recent years, we’ve seen more and more businesses explore ways to wow their customers through practical, innovative and visually-striking packaging.
“Our new cutting table has made the process of creating this bespoke packaging a whole lot quicker and slicker as our team of over 15 packaging experts can now sit down with busy customers and bring their concept to life within a matter of hours.”
As part of growth plans for its visual communications arm, Antalis has also invested in reconfiguring its Leeds distribution centre to accommodate local stocking of fast moving rigid and digital roll media from brands such as Orafol, 3A, Drytac and Coala.
