Multi Packaging Solutions (MPS) is a global business that provides packaging solutions for the branded and healthcare markets. With offices located across North America, Europe and Asia, the MPS manufacturing facility in Bristol was the first company in the UK to invest in Domino’s 7 colour N610i digital label press. Since the installation, MPS Bristol has secured over 40 new accounts in various market sectors.

“After a thorough analysis of the developments in the digital press market, we realised Domino’s 7-colour N610i label press represented a significant step forward both in terms of technology and operational excellence.”Andy Walter, Managing Director, MPS Bristol

Multi Packaging Solutions (MPS) Bristol, an award winning supplier of self-adhesive labels to a wide range of market sectors, is the first company in the UK to invest in Domino’s innovative 7-colour N610i UV digital inkjet label press. The installation was the result of a major investment programme at the site.

MPS Bristol is part of the international business Multi Packaging Solutions, which excels in markets where print and packaging are an integral part of brand identity. MPS has a proud record of innovation and had already invested in digital toner technology in its healthcare focused operations specifically for the production of labels and patient information leaflets for the pharmaceutical sector. MPS Bristol specialises in the ‘branded products’ sector where highly creative designs utilising a wide colour gamut are imperative in order to create packaging with attention-grabbing visuals, that enable the products to stand out on the shelf.

With this in mind, Andy Walter, Managing Director at MPS Bristol, wanted to capitalise on the evolving digital print technology and acquire a system that would visibly enhance the company’s label offering. Whilst digital isn’t new, he realised that UV ink jet especially could prove to be a key asset for some of the sites more creative designs.

“More of our customers want the flexibility of digitally printed labels, but naturally don’t want to compromise their brand with an inferior product. After a thorough analysis of the developments in the digital press market, we realised Domino’s 7-colour N610i label press represented a significant step forward both in terms of technology and operational excellence”

Andy says, “In addition to the broad colour range required by our customers, productivity was another key factor for us, as was the requirement for a ‘robust’ technology to compete with flexo and screen. To date, we have matched all the colours required by our ‘branded products’ market – the N610i has an extensive colour gamut on a good range of substrates. In terms of its productivity, we are currently running the N610i at 50m/min. The labels are printed so fast, we need additional finishing capability to keep up with it!”

Andy continues: “Not only does the system’s quality of print and strength of colour enable customers to manage their label requirements more effectively, it also allows them to maintain their brand integrity, which remains a key priority. These benefits made the purchase of Domino’s N610i an easy decision.”

Since the installation in May 2015, the N610i has helped to win over 40 new accounts, primarily from the drinks and personal care sectors. Some of these jobs were previously screen printed and have been secured due to Domino’s highly opaque white ink, which delivers a silk-screen like finish ideal for printing onto clear and metallic substrates. In the personal care market, MPS has received an excellent response with very positive feedback from customers.
