Lindsay Yates expands premises to grow pre-press and mailing

Managing director Paul Richardson (pictured) said the expansion was helped after a sub-tenant in the building’s top floor moved out, allowing the printer to put its entire administration facilities into the third-floor area.

Lindsay Yates’ manufacturing floor space will be expanded over two floors, while the areas previously occupied by administration will now house a new mailing line and LYG’s expanded pre-press facilities.

The existing Screen Trueflow and Agfa plate facility have been replaced by Heidelberg Prinect workflow and new CTP equipment outputting Kodak plates.

“We will be able to augment the increasing demand for remote proofing, which is part of increasing customer-focused requirements,” said Richardson.

He also revealed that the print group is planning to swap out its ageing Heidelberg 74 press later in  the year, though has not decided on the replacement.

Its mailing capabilities will be upgraded with a new line bought through Mail Pack, allowing the printer to bring polybagging work in-house.

Richardson said he was confident about making the investment in the sheetfed offset sector. “There is still good value in print and a good market for offset.”

“However, it will go to make up the full picture together with electronic media. The concept that electronic media will push offset out of the way is not going to happen. One complements the other.”
