Lindsay Yates Group has installed a new HP Indigo 10000 B2 digital sheetfed press, and created a new workflow with prepress and post press to go with it, in what it says is part of a paradigm shift for the business.
The company is aiming to win work from new markets, and to migrate its short run offset work to the new Indigo, supplied by Currie Group, which is the first installed in Sydney.
The major investment comes partly as a result of the company going through the Future Print programme, which has seen a dedicated business consultant assigned to Lindsay Yates to work with Richardson and fellow director David Shoppe.

Managing director Paul Richardson says: “Going through the Future print programme with our consultant John Clements gave us the insight and analysis to determine the transformation of the business, and part of that outcome is this investment in B2 digital.
“Future Print, together with the Tharstern MIS that we installed recently, has given us clear data on our business, and has enabled us to make big decisions based on facts.”
The Artarmon-based company is a leading boutique commercial offset printer, and has been in digital for several years with its Konica Minolta bizhub presses, but the HP Indigo 10000 setup represents its biggest investment in digital yet.
Richardson says: “The HP Indigo 10000 takes us to a whole new level of production. We were impressed with both the quality and productivity from the Indigo. It is also a proven technology with many users around the world. And being the first in Sydney will give us a competitive edge.”
