Sheffield-based Evolution Print has targeted a 20% growth after a £1.2 million investment in new plant and machinery.

The purchase of a Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75 and Ricoh C901 will enhance efficiency, productivity and quality at a time when customers are demanding high standards, faster turnaround and additional services.

Managing director Jonathan Newbould said: “Quality and turnaround are key requirements from our customers and this press will ensure that we can achieve both without compromise. The colour standard is exceptional and we expect to achieve ISO 12647 soon after implementation. The press is extremely efficient and we anticipate much increased delivery times.”

The Ricoh Digital C901 enables Evolution to satisfy the growing demand from customers for Direct Mail and short run projects.

Sales director Graham Congreve said: “The installation of the 901 has enabled us to provide a much more complete service for our customers, who now often require short run projects that lend themselves perfectly to this sort of press.”

Evolution have developed an growing reputation as an efficient, cost effective, quality yet innovative print company and in 2009 were winners of Innovative Printer of the Year and runner-up for Brochure Printer of the Year.

These developments have coincided with the promotion of Julie Rice as Commercial Director

Mr Newbould added: “We are delighted to welcome Julie to the board of directors, she has worked hard on developing the business within the retail sector and this promotion is well deserved and she will be an invaluable member of the team.’’
