Situated in a residence overlooking picturesque West Harbour in Auckland’s western suburbs, PMC has expanded rapidly in recent years.
From the company’s beginnings as a print broker and design house in the mid 80s, it has added a range of services to its repertoire over the years, first through in-house print and then by extending its finishing capability.
PMC Digital made its move into digital print less than two years ago, with Toshiba colour and black and white machines, and has added finishing capacity in the form of the folder, as well as a guillotine, which was purchased from TS Wilson around eight months ago.
PMC Digital’s Keith Simpson says that he chose to buy the folder from TS Wilson because he had already had a good experience with the guillotine, and because the folder performed well in demonstrations.
He was first introduced to TS Wilson when shopping around for the guillotine.
“I was approaching stationery companies, looking at other brands, and then some Inky Fingers and New Zealand Printer readers said to me that I should talk to TS Wilson for guillotines.
“I spoke to Steve Wilson about a year before I actually bought the guillotine, and then Darren Hales-Owen followed up when I was ready to buy. The service was excellent”
Since the installation, in mid May, the Duplo DF-520 N has not just met expectations. It has exceeded them, Keith says. The machine has, at various times, folded its way through a stack of 170gsm sheets and 150 gsm gloss sheets, jobs that such a machine should not be able to handle, but which it has processed with no problems.
It has proved a winning part of PMC’s philosophy of adding value to its client’s needs and also servicing its short-run market.
