Currie Group has inked a number of deals at PrintEx 19 with customers including Courtney Colour, EIP and Artypo.
The company, which provides and services print equipment to the graphic arts industry, made one of its biggest deals of the show with Courtney Colour, in a $2.5 million deal.
As part of the investment, Currie Group will fit out Courtney Group’s Melbourne print centre with a HP Indigo 12000 B2 press, an HP Indigo 7900, a HP R2000 flatbed UV, HP 570 roll-to-roll latex printer, as well as a new Horizon StitchLiner Mark III.
Currie Group executive chairman David Currie told Sprinter that the Courtney Group has been a customer of the company and was seeking an upgrade from older units that it had in use.
“Courtney was the first to install the B2 HP Indigo in Australia, and this was more than five years ago. These units are an upgrade, giving the company newer technology that it needs for its business,” he said.
“They will deliver the business with better print quality, running speeds, better workflows, etc. When you change your car after five years, you don’t expect it to function the same way, so these new technologies will improve processes for Courtney.”
Currie Group added that the installations of the units will start in a month.
In addition, Currie Group has also sold a Horizon RD-4055 Rotary Die-Cut System to EIP from the show floor.
“The company is looking to create lottery tickets – so it’s an A3 sheet that they perforate. So, with the die, that will give them a round edge and cut the ticket out for them,” Currie Group managing director Bernie Robinson said.
As for Artypo, it purchased a Horizon CRF-362 Creaser and Folder from Currie Group.
“As for Artypo, it’s the first time that they’ve bought a unit from us. They walked up to our stand at PrintEx and saw the kit. They had a chat to us about it, loved it and bought it,” Robinson added.
