5SeptEtiquette: Looking at short run business

Patrick Wack from 5SeptEtiquette

FRANCE. Specialising in adhesive label production the company decided to invest in a Xeikon 3300 to support its development of digital technology. Located in Courthezon near Avignon, the company (EUR 8.2 million turnover) employs 50 people, and serves a client base of manufacturers in the food, cosmetics, beauty and viticulture industries.

Equipped with three water-less offset presses, two flexo presses and equipment for screen printing and finishing, 5SeptEtiquette decided in June of this year to develop its digital printing business. The company’s objective: target the market for very short runs (less than 1000 linear metres [3280 ft]) and multiple print runs.

»Over the past few years we have succeeded in maintaining our competitiveness on short print runs thanks to efficient use of water-less offset and short ink trains« says Managing Director, Patrick Wack. »Today, our machines are working at full capacity and we need to increase the amount we are capable of producing. It is the right time for us to invest in equipment capable of processing very short runs and multiple reference series easily and without delay one after the other.«
