Konica Minolta has named Focus Label Machinery as an accredited industrial print partner.

Back in April 2021, the two companies formed a partnership for the supply of the AccurioLabel 230 digital label press within the UK. Furthering this partnership with Focus Label Machinery as a supplier of the AccurioLabel 230 is identified by Konica Minolta as a ‘key component’ in bringing the company’s new wave of digital label technology to the market. These in turn are intended to help print service providers, ‘seize growth opportunities in a buoyant but demanding market.’

Jon Pritchard, label and inkjet consultant at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK), said, ‘We are very excited to be working in partnership with Focus Label Machinery. Sharing our technology strengths with their considerable expertise, close customer relationships and a reputation for excellence, together we can offer customers even greater choice and class-leading service to support the immense opportunities for commercial printers. We want to be the leading supplier of digital label solutions and this partnership is a key component of our broader strategy to achieve this, delivering the next generation of technology married to unbeatable customer service.’

For Focus Label Machinery, partnering with Konica Minolta to deliver the AccurioLabel 230 presents a ‘considerable benefit for customers’, as company director David Lee commented. ‘There are significant opportunities for our customers in the market for short-run, high-quality labels. Whilst we have always been at the cutting edge of technology, we felt there was something missing from our portfolio that specifically caters for customers that are entering the label market or are embracing digital.

‘The Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 230 provides the perfect balance, allowing smaller label printers to service the market and enabling businesses that may have outsourced these requirements before to bring production inhouse.’

Antony Cotton, sales manager at Focus Label Machinery, added, ‘We have a strong bond of trust with our customers, so it is vital that we partner with manufacturers that share our commitment to customer support and deliver excellent solutions that match our customers’ needs. The AccurioLabel 230 is simple to operate and quiet, you can easily achieve excellent quality and it’s highly affordable compared to the alternatives. This is a great opportunity for our label print customers to get a high-quality digital label press that’s easy to operate, without breaking the bank.’
