Secure and essential communication solutions provider, Adare SEC, part of the Adare Group, has invested in three new pieces of machinery at its Redditch site, which hope to strengthen existing operations and expand its capabilities.
The first of these investments is a Dimuken foiling and numbering machine. This enables the highly-secure printing of documents, such as event tickets or exam certificates, to help protect against fraud, replication and counterfeiting. The second marks the addition of new plastic card production technology. Developed in response to a strategic client need, the new machine enables individual cards such as, gift, loyalty or membership cards, to be personalised and then attached to the ‘carrier’ in one secure streamlined process. Finally, a new booklet making machine completes the trio. An upgrade to an existing machine, Adare SEC has incorporated new technology from Wilstead, which looks to improve the capacity and efficiency of booklet making.
Barry Crich, Managing Director of Adare SEC said, “Adare SEC’s latest investments mark another important step as we continue to establish ourselves at the forefront of the secure and essential communications market and grow our presence within our core sectors. It represents a strategic market focus on meeting the increased levels of cross-sector demand for highly-secure printed solutions and re-enforces our commitment to delivering the highest levels of security, innovation, service and quality to our clients.”
This announcement is the latest in a year of ongoing investment for the Adare Group as a whole. It follows the acquisition of two competitor companies, Banner Manner Communication and Polestar Applied Solutions, plus a £3.3m deal with Ricoh to upgrade its printing systems at its headquarters in Huddersfield.
