(L-R) Charapak Label's Business Manager Michaela Smith, Charapak Owner and MD Richard Smith, and Stephen Hancock UK Sales Manager, Digital Colour at Domino UK.
Derbyshire-based corrugated packaging manufacturers, Charapak, have diversified into the labelling sector thanks to investment in Domino’s N610i digital ink jet label press.
The investment, following an initial customer enquiry, has opened up new opportunities for the company, now supplying high quality, digitally printed labels in quick time. Richard Smith, Owner and MD of Charapak said, “after an intensive review of the different print technologies available, we decided that Domino was the company that could deliver on all fronts.”
The company, that recently expanded into integrated fulfilment and specialist corrugated coated packaging, uses their their award-winning flexo post print and litho-laminating processes to produce specialist corrugated packaging, promotional displays and retail ready packaging for the industrial, food and drink, automotive, retail and e-commerce markets, globally.
Michaela Smith, Business Manager for Charapak Labels added, “our customer was previously having their labels flexo printed and were carrying huge amounts of stock on the shelf and were spending a lot of money on inventory, storage and obsolescence. We realised that the way forward was for short run, digitally printed labels that would lift their print from mediocre to outstanding, and that’s exactly what we’ve done.”
