First 4 Print Finishing invests in equipment to meet boom in demand

Print finisher First 4 Print Finishing has installed £125,000 worth of equipment to help manage its growing business.

The Blackburn-based company has added a sixth Heidelberg ST300 stitching line and a seventh MBO folder and Palamides bander from used equipment dealer Grafitec this month.

According to the PrintWeek SME of the Year, the secondhand Heidelberg was bought to replace a slower machine, but managing director David Nestor said that it had ended up being an addition rather than a replacement.

First 4 named 2010 PrintWeek SME of the Year!

It was a double first for First 4 Print Finishing - taking home the prize for SME Company of the Year at the first time of asking and being the first print finisher to win the SME prize at the PrintWeek Awards. The firm has gone from a four-man micro business four years ago to employing 100 staff. All of which probably comes as no surprise to anyone who knows the company’s energetic 28-year-old managing director David Nestor. The firm operates all day and can produce 10m promotional items per day for clients.
