POS Specialist MJD unveils £500k print investment to boost growth

Rutland-based POS manufacturing and creative design specialists MJD today announced details of growth plans that will see the company expand its existing operation into the neighbouring county of Northamptonshire.

MJD has confirmed the signing of a lease on a new printing facility in Alpha Court, Corby as part of a £500k investment programme to support future growth plans for the business. The announcement will also support new job creation in the area.

According to Paul Barker-Smith, owner and managing director of MJD, “This is a really positive move for us. The new facility will complement our existing POS production capabilities such as vacuum forming and provide the business with the perfect environment for sustained growth. We have ambitious plans over the next few years, and this move is a statement of our commitment to being a leading player in the POS sector. The new premises will allow us to do that.”

The Corby facility will also see substantial investment in a new Océ Arizona 550XT UV flatbed printer, which has been chosen specifically for its ability to provide high quality print solutions on plastics, cardboard and Foamex as well as fabric, glass, plywood and a range of other rigid media – particularly close-viewed POS and backlit applications – whilst also minimising raw materials use.

Investment has also been made into other printing equipment including a KPX 2000T automatic screen process printing machine.

“As a business, we’re already working towards the POS industry’s Sustainability Standard (PSS), developed by trade association POPAI UK & Ireland. The Arizona’s ability to consume half the ink of most printers in this class per printed square metre was also a major contributing factor to our decision,” said Barker-Smith.

As with its traditional retail display work, MJD has been busy identifying how its latest plant investment can deliver added client benefits.
