Fretwell Print & Direct Mail – 2013

Fretwell Print & Direct Mail begin 2013 with the installation of a Heidelberg Speedmaster 4 colour printing press and the purchase of an upgraded management information system.

The high speed Heidelberg Speedmaster SM74 Press replaces and older model and will bring faster make ready times and will nett sheets to the factory floor at higher speeds than the previous press. Complete with Prinect Axis Control – a powerful color measurement system for effective quality assurance and control – this installation helps keep Fretwell Print & Direct Mail at the forefront of the industry.

We have also begun the migration to a new MIS system, initially to produce faster quotations for clients and this will be follwed by further modules to integrate into works instructions and eventually accounts.

All in all, Fretwell Print & Direct Mail start the year with an investment of around £500000.
