The purchase is a part of the firm’s plan to add capabilities in flexible packaging and special tags, and self-adhesive labels.

Nilpeter said that the new press will complement Geostick’s existing line-up five Nilpeter FA-4 presses installed in Utihoorn and The Hague, Holland.

Geostick purchased the new press to replace old equipment, expand capacity, and increase quality and accuracy in the production of self-adhesive labels and complex tags in back and front printing.

Geostick Group operations director Cees Schouten said: “To solve these challenges we simply had to upgrade technology, shorten setup times, decrease waste, and ease operations for our printers. We have done all this with the new FA.

“In our Geostick Labels & Tags division we also produce labels for Healthcare, where perfect print quality and very accurate registering is a must, which the FA also enables.”

The purchase of new FA press will allow Geostick to upgrade and improve its production of self-adhesive labels and flexible packaging.

Cees Schouten added: “We have a long history with Nilpeter, and currently have four FA-4 presses in Uithoorn, and one at our plant in The Hague. We are very satisfied with the quality, service, and efficiency of that press, so it was natural to go with the new FA for this project.

“We considered other press manufacturers, but Nilpeter gives us the perfect solution at the right price, and with this investment we can secure our customers the best quality at competitive pricing.”

The press has been purchased for installation at the firm’s production plant in Heumen in the Netherlands.

Geostick is engaged in conventional printing as well as digital printing. It also supplies label printers, offers maintenance, labeling software, transfer foil, warning labels, healthcare labels, flexible packaging, tags, tickets, barcode stickers, and warehouse labels.
