Harkwell Labels increase ABG finishing equipment line-up
Leading custom label printing business, Dorset-based Harkwell Labels, has recently taken delivery of two new finishing machines from A B Graphic International (ABG). Following an ongoing period of growth, the investment increases Harkwell's impressive line-up of ABG machines to seven.
The new arrivals include an additional Digicon Series 3 - ABG’s flagship machine - which includes a screen printing unit and thermal lamination module, and a Digicon Lite SR. The move, which will allow them to keep pace with continued customer demands, follows recent purchases of a second screen unit on an existing Digicon Series 3 and their first Digicon Lite - a machine specifically made for shorter runs and aimed at increasing job flexibility.
Tim Fountain, Harkwell Labels owner and managing director, said: “Having moved into a purpose-built factory in 2016 to increase capacity, our growth has continued into 2020. We see the surge in our customer base as testament to the ongoing quality of our work.
“Harkwell chose ABG’s Digicon Series 3 to offer our customers the highest level of embellishment and finishing capabilities - particularly important for our customers in the vaping and pharmaceutical markets.”
Commenting on the new investment, Mark Hyde, ABG’s UK sales manager, said: “Seeing Harkwell grow and develop over the years has been a pleasure. We have a lot of shared values and it’s great to see that our future proofing ethos has allowed them to add modules as and when required.
“We appreciate that this increased flexibility, as well as the capabilities of our finishing equipment, are the key reasons for their continued investment in ABG equipment and we look forward to seeing the impact of these machines on quality and future business growth.”
