News: Garnett Dickinson invests in Rotherham facility


Rotherham-based Garnett Dickinson Digital has invested in new machinery to increase their production capacity.

The digital arm of the £45m turnover Garnett Dickinson group, has installed a unique Horizon StitchLiner from Intelligent Finishing Systems at their state of the art Manvers facility.

The Horizon StitchLiner is the only automated saddlestitching line on the market that operates from flat 4-page sections, so eliminating the section-folding stage to reduce time, waste and cost. It enables Garnett Dickinson to be more responsive, improve turnaround times and increase production capacity.

John Bradley, manufacturing manager at Garnett Dickinson, said: "We were sending much of our work out which was costing us valuable time and cutting into our margins. Now we can take on the shorter runs and the jobs that need to be turned round within a tight schedule with the cast-iron certainty that we will meet our customers' high expectations.

"Everybody here is very impressed with the Horizon. Choosing it was one of the best things we have ever done. We expect it to achieve a return on investment 50% faster than we initially anticipated.

"We have increased productivity because we are now able to do more work inhouse. We have also expanded the amount of work we can take on because we know we can accept it and turn it around to meet our clients' deadlines. Even though our trade finishers are only a few miles away, the relinquishing of control was more significant than the cost factor – we always deliver."

Garnett Dickinson moved into its £20m state-of-the-art facility on Brookfield's Park in Manvers in 2006.

The company has recently been shortlisted for "Consumer Magazine Printer of the Year" at the respected Print Week 2011 Awards.
