The Leeds-based printer Reflex Label Plus recently acquired the second Nilpeter FA-Line press. Nilpeter FA-Line is a fully loaded FA-22 press having more features. 

Built around the modern printing operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls, the Nilpeter FA-Line provides a maximum level of stability, the tightest register tolerance, and excellent printing results on multiple substrates. All normal self-adhesive materials, including flexible packaging films, polymer films, metallic films, and paper.

Reflex Label Plus speaks about the positive experience with Nilpeter 

Shaun Hanson, Keighley site manager of Reflex Label Plus, said, “We decided to invest in another Nilpeter press because of our previous positive experience with them, and their reputation for world-class customer service, and they did not disappoint.”

“The team supported us at every stage of the purchase journey. From outlining our specific needs right at the beginning to liaising with the four other machinery suppliers involved in the project to see it through to fruition. The time and attention taken by the team at Nilpeter meant that installation was easy and stress-free, with any challenges handled quickly and professionally by their engineers.”

“The press quality is second to none, and this, coupled with the excellent follow-up training, means that we have already produced some of the most technologically advanced labels in the world. This machine has been built to last and will be serving us for many years to come, I am excited to see what more we can achieve,” Hanson concludes.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
