Horizon Digital Print’s investment in a Vanguard Europe digital machine – the first in Ireland – is the central focus of its sustainability drive that has resulted in scooping Ireland’s national Green Manufacturer Award.

Dublin based Horizon Digital Print has also announced a major investment in Durst’s Lift ERP software, as it continues its growth and transformation into one of Europe’s most sustainable and innovative printing companies.

‘The Vanguard is a fabulous, versatile and user friendly machine – uncomplicated and the quality of print is excellent,’ said Declan Kelly, print manager at Horizon Digital Print. ‘It has super fast turnaround time, and the cost of the power consumption is predicted to be a tenth of the power our previous system, thanks to the LED functionality. The Vanguard is so versatile – from fabrics, PE, paper, mesh, PVC vinyl among many the materials we print on. It is an ideal product for our needs, with perfect image quality, and is extremely reliable.’

Derek Gillen, managing director of Horizon Digital Print, said: ‘As an already established Durst production house, investing in yet more state of the art technology – this time from Vanguard – is an important step forward. Our big focus has been on energy reduction, which is why we were even more delighted to be win the Green Manufacturer Award this year. The decision to purchase the Vanguard was at the centre of sustainability drive – it is because of its green credentials.’
