THE HAGUE, The Netherlands—Long-standing Nilpeter partner Geostick Group has added two additional Nilpeter 17-in. FA presses to its lineup of seven Nilpeter presses in the company’s three production plants in Uithoorn, Heumen and The Hague, Holland. The two new presses have been installed in The Hague plant.
The addition of two new presses marks another big step for Geostick, adding standardization across group locations, as well as more flexibility and opportunities for the company’s label, flexible packaging and tag customers.
“With these modern printing presses, we are more ready to cope with the increasing demand for short delivery times and high printing quality in mid-length runs. The business is still growing, and with the added efficiency provided by our two new FA presses, we have won even more food production customers,” said Cees Shouten, operations director, Geostick Group.
“On the two presses in Den Haag (The Hague, Holland) we produce mid and long run jobs for the food industry—mostly labels with direct food contact, for instance on avocados and mango fruits. The labels are highly decorated with a minimum of four colors in print,” he added.
“We have greatly benefited from the high printing quality, short track transit, easy loading of tooling, not to mention production efficiency of the FA press,” Shouten concluded.
“With this new investment, Geostick has taken their automation, production capacity, and quality to an even higher level. This will give them the perfect tool to help reach their target of €100 million turnover in 2024, when Geostick will celebrate their 100 years in existence,” said Bert van Kooy, sales manager Benelux, Nilpeter B.V.
