Swanline Group, a supplier of specialist printed packaging and point-of-sale displays, has acquired two new machines from Switzerland-based machinery and services company BOBST.

This investment in extra machinery will help Swanline to offer flexible, trade-only print and conversion services in the UK.

The two new BOBST machines include a BOBST EXPERTFOLD 165 A2 folder-gluer and a VISIONCUT 1.6 PR die-cutter. Both have been installed at Swanline’s centrally located site in Staffordshire, UK.

Swanline, which is owned by packaging distribution company Zeus Packaging, has purchased BOBST machines before, including a BOBST FOLIOSTAR 165 MATIC sheet-to-sheet laminator and a BOBST VISIONCUT 1.6, complete with Bobst’s POWER REGISTER system.

Swanline intends to help meet the demand for its corrugated packaging solutions with the addition of these new machines.

Swanline managing director Richard Towers said: “We have worked with BOBST for over a decade and the acquisition of this new machinery is the latest chapter in a long-standing and mutually beneficial partnership.”

The EXPERTFOLD 165 machine is suitable for the latest high-speed, high-output packing lines.

The VISIONCUT 1.6 machine meanwhile, can accommodate most substrates and long and short runs.

Swanline production manager Dave Salt said: “In order to offer Swanline customers the very best solutions, we know it’s important to continually invest into the very best processing, printing and conversion technology.

“BOBST gives us access to this calibre of equipment along with a robust service network, which is an equally important consideration in our purchasing decisions.”
