BOARD LAMINATION

Founded in 1983, our lamination division has over 30 years’ experience in the manufacturing of a diverse range of products.

In 2002 we used our experience to design and build a bespoke laminator which we have continued to invest in and upgrade to the latest technological and performance requirements. More recently we carried out a joint KTP program with Liverpool University and a two year process engineering upgrade.

Our purpose built machine can combine up to 5 reels of carton board or paper to produce laminated boards that are rigid, stable and flat. We can produce a maximum sheet size of 1600x2500mm in thicknesses from 400 to 4,000 micron, as well as producing smaller sizes using our onsite guillotining services.

The products that we make cover a wide variety of industries and applications from unlined and white lined chip board for rigid boxes to two-sided white display board for point-of-sale advertising and luxury boxes such as whisky and champagne boxes.

Display Boards

DISPLAY BOARDS

We are the leading UK manufacturer of display board for high quality printing. Our point-of-sale (POS) applications are visible in retailers throughout the country promoting goods, special offers and sales.

All our display boards are produced with materials which are environmentally friendly. Coming from a sustainable source, compliant with the EU timber regulation 995/2010, our range of display boards can be manufactured using FSC/PEFC accredited or 100% recycled material.

Display board is produced by laminating white lined boards back to back. To achieve greater thickness, unlined boards are ‘sandwiched’ between the two liners to satisfy applications requiring extra strength.

Flatness and stability is a pre-requisite for display board, which we achieve through the combination of the latest technology, a unique laminator, quality raw materials and the expertise of our operators and management team.

LUXURY BOXES

We specialise in combining the highest print quality boards from the world’s leading mill to create bespoke two-sided rigid boards, unavailable direct from the mill, which allow for challenging print and foil applications to be applied to meet the demands of the luxury goods market.

Whisky and Champagne boxes are two markets where these products meet the demanding requirements, providing a luxury feel box both externally and internally.

The speed achieved on our machine means that for runs of five tonnes and up, we achieve greater economies of scale for our printing partners than using their own in house sheet to sheet laminator.

These grades are run bespoke to the brand managers or packaging designer’s specification.

For further information, contact our lamination team who will be happy to discuss any specific requirements.
