Kingfisher labels installs seventh BGM machine

UK converter Kingfisher Labels has installed an inspection system and a high-speed re-register digital converting system from Bar Graphic Machinery (BGM), taking the number of BGM machines running at its site to seven.

The converter purchased the inspection machine in order to help it keep up with increasing customer demands.

Karl Jackson, production director of Kingfisher Labels, said: ‘The inspection machine has made us more efficient, allowing us to provide our customers with quicker lead times. The machine is quick and easy to set up and the new razor slitting for unsupported film is fantastic. The HMI is also easy to use, as well as the controls.’

Kingfisher also purchased a high-speed re-register digital converting system, allowing it to convert customer-supplied printed materials, as well as complementing its existing BGM machinery. 

Karl Jackson continued: ‘The service and help you get from BGM is as you would expect from a family business. Everyone is polite and nothing is too much trouble. Scott, their engineer, is a credit to the company, always very helpful and gets the job done. The relationship we have had with sales manager Daniel Carr over the past 20 years has been great, just like having a good friend that you can rely on.’

BGM’s managing director Annemarie Rhodes commented: ‘We are thrilled with the repeat business from Kingfisher Labels and we look forward to many more years of collaboration, supplying Kingfisher Labels with high quality, innovative machinery.’
