McGowans, one of Europe’s largest digital print marketing service providers, has installed its second Scodix print enhancement press.

This has seen a Scodix Ultra 6000 SHD press installed at its facility in Dublin. It is located alongside a Landa S10 nanographic printing press and Highcon Beam 2 digital cutting and creasing system.- This is part of the company’s move into the folding carton market.

McGowans serves the European market with a full range of digital large format and small format products. With over 26 machines, the company offers a large range of printed products to its clients. This latest investment is set to deliver ‘high-quality B1 format products’, with improved production efficiency, economic and sustainable benefits also claimed.

McGowans’ growing print volumes have encouraged an expansion of its B1 digital workflow.

According to Mal McGowan, CEO of McGowans, key to the company’s decision to invest in another Scodix press were the data-driven sustainability benefits and economic advantages. He commented, ‘As soon as we saw the Scodix Ultra 6000 SHD press in action, it became a must-have and we knew the added value it would bring to our business. Our customers are used to the ‘wow factor’ they can get from Scodix product decoration, and now with our Ultra 6000, we can offer them even more choices for designs with fine detailing. The quality and versatility of what we can do on the Scodix opens more unique possibilities for our company, while supporting in cutting our production costs and raise our sustainability benchmarks.’

Franz Repp, president of Scodix EMEA, said, ‘McGowans is a first-class provider that insists on nothing less than the finest print products for its customers while finding solutions to increase production efficiency and economics in their production line. We are thrilled they have chosen to add another Scodix press to enhance its proficient workflow.’
