The recent purchase of a new Eykon 2513 FB UV-LED flatbed printer has allowed Breen Printing to expand on its current product offering and deliver high quality reliable service to its existing clients.
Installed by Agfa at the company’s Healesville-based premises, the entry level UV-LED curable inkjet system on a moving gantry flatbed is ideal for step & repeat work and for printing multiple jobs on differently sized media. It also offers borderless printing which avoids an extra finishing step.
“We have always offered corflute and signage services and with this new machine we are able to widen our packaging and signage range, and experiment with new products including short run digital packaging solutions,” Breen Printing joint managing director Luke Woodhead said.
“Being located in the Yarra Valley, we have faced challenges with freight and long production timelines. We are now able to offer our clients a quick response to their event and marketing needs while maintaining a high-quality standard.”
“The team have been excited as they have learned about what we are calling our ‘new beast’. This machine that will allow us to grow, create and offer end to end solutions to our clients,” Breen Printing joint managing director Kristy Woodhead said, pointing out that when considering this purchase, she and Luke explored all their options and investigated alternative solutions ranging from entry level to high-end.
“We found that Agfa was highly recommended by our industry peers and have experienced value in the support and training offered by the Agfa team. We look forward to continuing to work with them,” Kirsty added.
Kirsty and Luke have been working at Breen since 1 July 2020, and were joint winners in the Printer 50 category of the ProPrint Awards last year. Previous owners of the family-based company were Derek and Merinda Jones, who was involved in the company from 1 July 1987 and Peter Breen, who was involved from 2 April 1973.
The company recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, covered in Sprinter on 4 April.
