The business, set up more than 40 years ago, bought a Xerox C75 and a Xerox DocuColor 7002 to beef up its small-format offering . One the large-format side, the company is buying a Canon iPF 9000 as part of the investment. LT Print is also looking at buying an Oce ColorWave 650 and a flatbed press. The company also runs five Heidelberg presses including a five-colour Speedmaster 74.

“We will bring all our operations under one roof and allow both the design and print department and the digital team to work closer together,” said sales director Jon Aindow. “We have doubled our digital printing capacity but customers will still be able to drop-in for ad-hoc printing queries and to place orders.

“We used to outsource digital work but hope to bring it all in house and hope this equipment will add £500,000 of business in posters, banners and exhibition graphics. Printing is constantly evolving and it has been essential for us to keep pace with new developments in technology.”

LT Print has more than 40 staff and a turnover of almost £3m from work for education, health, commercial, hospitality and leisure sectors. Clients Claridge’s and the Savoy hotels, Coors Brewery, Bank of Scotland, Liverpool Football Club, Forum Housing Association and a several NHS Trusts.
