AN Ipswich print firm is investing in a new £2million press which it hopes will open up new markets.

Ancient House Press, based on the Hadleigh Road Industrial Estate, is equipping itself with a Mitsubishi Diamond 3000 Tandem Perfector 12 colour press which will enable it to target the financial and automotive sectors more closely.

The press's unique design ensures a perfect register between front and back, improving printing quality and reducing paper waste by more than 2%.

As part of the investment, the company is also buying the Mitsubishi Intelligent Press Control software to minimise waste and Mitsubishi Colour Control System MCCS 2 to measure and control colour, ensuing consistent qualify from the first to the last copy of the job.

The Mitsubishi Diamond 3000 Tandem Perfector is a significant addition to our press room - the first Mitsubishi press in our history - and a decision taken after extensive research by our directors.”

Joint managing director Michael Underdown said they had looked extensively at the market place, and the Mitsubishi press came out “well ahead” in quality and new technology.
