McGowans, one of Europe’s largest digital print marketing service providers, announces the installation of its second Scodix Digital Print Enhancement Press. Situated in Ireland, the company serves the European market with a full range of digital large format and small format products and the investment promises to deliver high quality B1 format products, with improved production efficiency, economic and sustainable benefits.

Based in Dublin, McGowans’ growing print volumes has encouraged an expansion for its B1 sized digital workflow. The Scodix Ultra 6000 SHD Press fits right into the mid-size B1 format digital equipment, providing superior print enhancement solutions and a seamless run for embellishment product decoration, adding to the quality that McGowans is renowned for. 

With a reputation as an early adopter of new technologies, McGowans is often first to market with the latest digital printing innovations across Europe. With over 26 machines, the company offers a large range of high caliber printed products to its clients. According to Mal McGowan, CEO of McGowans, key points of appeal for McGowans to invest in another Scodix press were the impressive data-driven sustainability benefits and economic advantages delivered by Scodix’ unique technology. McGowan comments: “As soon as we saw the Scodix Ultra 6000 SHD Press in action, it became a must-have and we knew the added value it would bring to our business. Our customers are used to the ‘wow-factor’ they can get from Scodix product decoration, and now with our Digital Enhancement 6000 Press, we can offer them even more choices for designs with fine detailing.

“The quality and versatility of what we can do on the Scodix opens more unique possibilities for our company, while supporting in cutting our production costs and raise our sustainability benchmarks.” 

Franz Repp, President of Scodix EMEA compliments McGowans for extending its B1 digital format business: “McGowans is a first-class provider that insists on nothing less than the finest print products for its customers while finding solutions to increase production efficiency and economics in their production line. We are thrilled they have chosen to add another Scodix press to enhance its proficient workflow.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
