Updated: Sep 21

By Graphic Display World


Key industry players are coming together at swissQprint's UK headquarters to demonstrate a more affordable, sustainable approach to workflow and print & cut technology in the drive towards net zero.


swissQprint has engaged with Zund, Antalis and Compass Business Finance to show production leaders and decision makers in digital printing, signage, and packaging how to achieve a more effective and sustainable print production process to meet clients' environmental needs, in the one-day events being held on 27th and 28th September 2022.

Hosted at swissQprint's UK headquarters in Bracknell, each group of guests will explore sustainability issues across the production process, including reducing energy consumption, minimising waste, and using environmentally friendly materials in their printing.

swissQprint's industry leading flatbed printer, the Nyala 4, will be on display for visitors to evaluate, together with Zund’s market leading versatile S3 L-1600 Swiss built precision digital cutter, designed to reduce waste through its efficient hardware and advanced nesting software. Members of both companies will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate the machines’ performance.


In addition, UK leader in papers, packaging, and visual communication distribution, Antalis, will showcase key products from their expanding range of sustainable materials for large format print applications. Their Green Star System™ rates products from zero to five stars based upon material make-up and recyclability at end of life, making eco-responsible choices much easier to navigate.


Print and packaging finance experts Compass Business Finance will provide in-depth analyses of ways in which today's print service suppliers can achieve a more effective and sustainable production process.


Throughout the day, seminars will address a wide variety of industry subjects, giving delegates the chance to identify key opportunities for improving the sustainability of their production, from equipment and workflow choices to materials and effective financing and access to government loans.


Erskine Stewart, Managing Director of swissQprint, is excited at the prospect of hosting this event: "It is not often that print service providers get the chance to address so many elements of their business at one event, and swissQprint is proud to assemble such a wealth of experience in one place. Truly, this will be a 'one-stop shop' for discussing all things sustainable and we look forward to meeting both new and existing contacts from across the industry."
