Duo UK has invested £800K in a brand-new printing press and conversion machine to increase productivity and output. The machines have been installed at Duo UK's Manchester factory and have already produced impressive output results.

The first, a flexographic printing press can produce eight colour designs and has increased Duo UK's printed film output by some 30% already.

The second, a mailing bag conversion machine, is the first of its kind in the UK. This machine has been engineered specifically to feature a unique adaptation for Duo UK's exclusive Duo Optipac mailing bag design. The machine itself will increase the output of all mailing bags by more than 25%.

Dale Brimelow, Operations Director at Duo UK said of the new machines:"We're constantly looking at ways to grow and build on the success that we've achieved over nearly three decades. We have ambitious growth plans and these new machines will play a big part in achieving our vision.

The ecommerce market appreciated instantly the obvious cost and time-saving benefits of the Duo Optipac mailing bag and subsequently demand for this product has soared. The additional capacity is in place as we approach the retail sector's busiest time of the year."
