    Team Leader David Innes, inspects the output of the Pro30 Bookletmaker

When asked about the benefits of the Pro30 Bookletmaker, Goprint’s Digital Print Manger, Steve Webb responded,

“There is a cost saving through producing documents in square backed format rather than perfect bound, and generating additional revenue with larger capabilities filling a void in the market.“

They also commented on the fact that Fuji Xerox support has been very helpful in maintaining reliability and productivity.

“The tender process was undertaken to replace the machinery we had which had reached the end of lease and the Nuvera /Pro30 was seen as the best profile to fit the scope and type of work Goprint produces” says Webb.
