Roberts Mart has invested £2m to install a BOBST 20SIX eight-color printing press, Nordmeccanica Super Simplex Laminator and Proslit Slitter Rewinder at its Aire Valley factory in Leeds, UK.

"This significant investment in new equipment is possible because we have a healthy order book - with a good number of orders coming through the pipeline​,” said Roberts Mart, sales director, Ben Roberts.

We are seeing growth across the board, particularly food where we are seeing much more opportunity in snacks and confectionery​.

Roberts said the Proslit Slitter Rewinder is in place already, while the laminator and printing press will be installed this month.

The company's flexible printing and packaging operations, currently employs 170 staff and will hire 20 more once the equipment is fully installed.
