Digital print firm Your Print Partner has invested in four new digital print machines at its Lincoln headquarters, to meet growing demand for its products.
The company, which specialises in producing printed outdoor marketing products, such as flags, banners and graphic ‘wraps’, and fabric exhibition and point-of-sale displays, has already spent £1.5 million on its new manufacturing hub so far this year.
YPP purchased a new Mimaki UJV55 320 LED-UV pvc printer, new Mimaki 320 DS wide fabric machines and a Mimaki JFX200 flat bed printer, which have now been joined by the four additional Mimaki 320 DS printers.
Ten new jobs have been created by the company, which is also offering several digital print apprenticeships.
Managing director Stuart Maclaren said: “Our core business is expanding rapidly and we wanted to ensure we could meet this exciting challenge quickly.
“Manufacturing our products in-house gives us greater quality control, reduces lead times, and makes us more flexible and responsive to our customers’ needs.
“As well as keeping pace with global technology, another key challenge in our industry has been recruiting workers with the necessary skills.
“We are now working with a number of industry bodies and our local college to offer some exciting apprenticeships and train the future stars of YPP.”
