Customer Case  | Aberystwyth, United Kingdom  | 24 May 2016

Cambrian Printers signs five-year contract for Azura TU plates.

Agfa and Cambrian Printers are pleased to jointly announce the signing of a five year plate deal. This will result in the processing of over half a million plates imaged on Cambrian’s two Avalon N8-60 platesetters installed at its Aberystwyth site.

“We strongly believe that companies such as ours need to value their suppliers. We look to customers for a long-term commitment and, therefore, we try to do the same with our suppliers. Our use of Agfa products in recent years has proved most successful and our decision to enter into this agreement was made all the easier knowing the service level and support we receive is exceptional. So, for us, the decision to sign with Agfa has brought us stability and reliability which will be beneficial to both parties,” explained Company Chairman, Robert Read.

This plate contract comes at a time when Cambrian Printers is developing new business in one of its specialist areas of producing high quality fine art auction catalogues. The company’s targeting of short-run, high pagination work means that a large number of printing plates are used in its lithographic department.

“The quality control needed to produce this level of work places demands on our staff and our suppliers. The environmental benefits are important too. We will save approximately 700,000 litres of water over the five year contract,” added Robert Read.

“The service we receive from Agfa determined that there was no need to look elsewhere. The platesetters are bullet proof. They just don’t break down and you can’t fault the plates – they have to be good to produce the quality of work we require. Added to this, cleaning and maintenance takes half the time, needs to be carried out less frequently and there’s virtually no mess,” enthused Chris Haines, Technical Manager at Cambrian Printers.
