Thomson Print & Packaging expands business potential with new Easymatrix 106 CS

Print Solutions

Thomson Print & Packaging is fast becoming a major supplier in bespoke printed folding cartons. The Edinburgh based company has recently moved its site operations to a larger factory at The Gyle. The new premises have enabled it to install large format cut and crease equipment from Heidelberg as it develops its carton business.


Michael Thomson, production director, said: ‘We evaluated a few suppliers, but the Heidelberg Easymatrix 106 CS provides us with the best solution for our requirements. We have outsourced this type of work previously, resulting in a substantial productivity gain by moving this operation in-house.’


‘We supply a wide range of print and packaging products, mainly catering to the beverages industry in the UK and Ireland. This new facility supports our growth plans in regard to developing our carton business and will continue during 2024 with the installation of a new folder gluer, capable of finishing difficult carton styles in a single pass,’ said Barry Thomson, sales director.


The Easymatrix offers increased productivity, with a machine speed up to 7700 sheets per hour and a maximum sheet format of 750 × 1060 mm, compared to the use of conventional hand platen and cylinder machines.


Staff at Thomson Print & Packaging are reacting very well to the new location. The Scottish firm is also in the process of employing a further four staff as they continue to invest in the future of the business.


The company is a family owned business established in 1998, based in the south of Edinburgh. It produces a range of printed labels, brochures, books, folding cartons, collarettes, swing tags, marketing materials and corporate stationery.


The recent move has shifted the company closer to its main customers, enabling it to reduce its carbon footprint in fulfilment.  With an increase in productivity and a significant reduction in waste the Easymatrix 106 CS is also expected to contribute towards operational sustainability.
