Irelands largest POS printer invests in Kolbus Autobox Boxmaker

After recent investment success in digital machines Mal McGowan Owner at McGowan’s saw the demand for environmentally friendly packaging to protect their goods in transit to the end Customer

Mal comments; “For 25 years we have been the go-to digital printing company for Irelands businesses. We now operate on over 25 digital presses working on a vast amount of substrates manufacturing quantities from 1 to thousands. The Kolbus-Autobox enables us to turn a specialised printed job from design to print, conversion, assembly and packaged in a record time. We’ve effectively taken out another link in the supply chain. The Autobox forms a strategic part of our business plan that goes hand in hand with customers’ demands for printed shorter run, bespoke, quicker turn-around, personalised, printed products.

He continues; “The thing we liked most about the Autobox was its ability to set within 60 seconds from 1 job to the next. We ran a batch of 700, 0411 style boxes within an hour and had the printed product out that afternoon. We now have the exact sized box, reducing our packaging costs considerably. We are aiming to eliminate the shipping of air as well as reducing our costs/usage on plastic, protective packaging.

Before the Autobox, we were taking up capacity on our CAD table and semi-automatic diecutter which really wasn’t ideal. Since installation, we have reduced our corrugated box stock significantly, in the process freeing up much space for holding more precious raw material”.

Arran Sethi, UK Sales Manager comments; “McGowans have such a diverse portfolio of printed products varying in size, shape & quantity. Having the exact sized box or being prepared for an on demand or rush job was near impossible. Mal can now manufacture what he wants, when he needs it, ensuring his valuable product is distributed instantly with no delay. Our Kolbus Autobox machines are truly world class and backed by excellent aftersales support; everything that a leading Company like McGowans comes to expect from their kit supplier”.
