Simpson Print (Bloomingdale, Ontario), a full-service printer founded in 1964, has installed its third swissQprint Nyala Flatbed Printer, expecting the retail market to take off again. “People will be back in the stores once the pandemic is over,“ said Carla Johanns, President of Simpson Print. Retail represents a major part of the company’s business, and it’s preparing to face the boom and meet possible new customer requirements – including a shift to a more hybrid market. The company was also an early adopter of wide-format. “Simpson Print is always about unique differentiation in the market,“ Johanns added. The growing company successfully diversified since 2017 when it installed its first swissQprint large-format printer. It added another in 2019. All of its Nyala flatbeds are equipped with various add-ons. “This acquisition was all about quality,” Johanns pointed out. “Auality is a client deliverable that we are not willing to sacrifice. Adding a third platform with a jetable primer puts us in one of the strongest positions possible for quality, speed and versatility in meeting all print requirements on time.”
Simpson Print specializes in industrial nameplates and decals, retail merchandising, in-store signage, custom and high-volume packaging, and much more. Its Bloomingdale production facility also includes finishing, warehouse and inventory management and final fulfillment, complimented by an experienced client-care team. SwissQprint’s Nyala LED curing significantly reduces power consumption. Less heat build-up, in turn, increases the variety of materials that can be printed, enabling new applications. The Nyala lies perfectly flat over its entire surface of 3.2 × 2 metres, facilitating pinpoint ink droplet placement that yields exceptional image quality in addition to high productivity. The Nyala LED outputs a maximum of 206 square metres per hour and is expandable as required, including a roll-to-roll option.
