NTE – Open House event showing new Mark Andy Digital One
FRANCE • Family owned and managed French label converter, NTE, has hosted a “Happy Day” at its plant in Roubaix in the North of France to celebrate the retirement of its founder Gérard Wojciekowski after 22 years. The event was inaugurated by the Mayor of Roubaix, Guillaume Delbar, as the company passed into the hands of Gerard’s son Rémi and daughter Valérie, and son-in-law Thibault Duponchel, who has managed the business since 2006. The company also showed its recently installed Mark Andy Digital One, a digital entry-level label printing press.
The company, which now employs 19 and will generate a turnover of EUR 5 million in 2018, has always prided itself on a reputation for innovation. In recent years, investment in a new flexo press and automatic plate washing machine have improved print quality and eased the tasks of the operatives. In addition, the company has invested in a diploma-based training scheme for its employees to improve skills and provide an industry-recognised qualification.
Most recently, NTE invested in a Mark Andy Digital One press. This entry-level toner press produces work of high quality in short to medium run lengths, and offers inline converting opportunities. Chosen for its simplicity of operation, small footprint, and low running costs, the Digital One adds flexibility to NTE’s production capability.
According to the company, with the new technology, NTE has decided to recruit its first ever sales person, and François Brabant will join NTE in September with a brief to grow and diversify the business. Renowned for its customer service, NTE sees its ongoing investment in technology and people as a commitment to future success for itself and its customers.
