Domino expands to reap digital printing boom
Inkjet technology business Domino has officially opened a new facility in Cambridge UK as it prepares for a boom in its digital printing business.
Group MD Nigel Bond forecasts massive growth in the market, which is already creating extra jobs at Domino.
The coding and marking specialist has refurbished an additional 3,500 sq m unit on Saxon Way in Bar Hill with a 500 sq m demonstration centre featuring a range of kit including the latest N610i ink jet label press.
Cutting the ribbon and declaring the facility officially open was long-serving employee Barry Few, who joined the Domino as a trainee engineer 32 years ago at the age of 16 and is now global technical training manager for digital printing.
He said: “Commercial and digital printing has been my whole life and I’m proud to be part of Domino’s history. The main thing that makes Domino different is its people – I am delighted to be opening this facility for everyone who works here, for their dedication, loyalty and attention to detail.”
Nigel Bond said the investment reflected Domino’s expectations for growth in digital printing, with the company creating 50 new jobs in the segment over the last three years.
“Digital printing will be a big growth driver for Domino in the next few years,” he said. “It currently accounts for 12 per cent of sales and indications are that it will grow to 25 per cent in the not too distant future. We shall continue to invest in this important part of our business.”
