Canon has secured its largest order of imagePress C850 digital production presses with investment in 85 units by Synertec, a fast growing consultancy which is now the world’s single biggest user of the C850 system. One device has been installed at the company’s headquarters in Wellington, Somerset with the further 84 split between its production sites in Bristol and Warrington. The deal that will be worth around £5million over three years.
The imagePress C850 was launched into the flagship range in September 2016 as a result of customer requests for more quality focused and flexible production presses. Its ability to automatically switch from simplex to duplex, known as ‘super-plex’ printing, whilst retaining order integrity, along with class leading productivity, was very much a deciding factor.
Mark Baldock, managing director of Synertec, said: ‘Canon came out top in every set of criteria and we have been delighted with how this partnership has progressed. The speed of response, knowledge and professionalism of the teams has been outstanding.
‘Our rapid growth created the need to re-evaluate our print offering. We needed to expand capacity and invest wisely. The Canon systems give us massive increases in productivity, improved efficiencies and more throughput. This investment is a major step forward for us. The deal has opened new doors to develop business opportunities and increase print volumes as well. We are already seeing time savings of up to three hours a day in productivity.’
Synertec has over 500 clients in various industries and specialises in outsourced communication including printing, folding and mailing, alongside electronic distribution of time critical correspondence for the private sector and NHS patient communication.
