  • Bambra Press buys HP Indigo 10000 – 1st at PacPrint

    One of two HP Indigo 10000 presses on the Currie Group stand at PacPrint this week – sold to John Wanless, Bambra Press – is awarded the 1st Print21 HotPick of the show.

    David Currie and Simon Lewis (pictured), HP Indigo, were pleased to accept the Print21 HotPick for the HP Indigo 10000 at PacPrint. The award is for standout technology exhibited and there are few more compelling pieces of kit on display at the show than the first B2 digital press.

    According to Wanless, the HP Indigo is a natural progression for the company, which has used the technology for nine years. “We work in the B2 offset format market, but as more jobs arise that require flexibility we need a machine that enables us to capitalise on those opportunities,” he said.

    Simon Lewis and David Currie accept the Print21 HotPick for the HP Indigo 10000 from publisher Patrick Howard at PacPrint.

    The Currie Group stand is the largest at PacPrint, packed with technology on display, from the first showing of the HP Indigo 10000s to the Scodix, digital embellisher and the newly developed Horizon SmartStacker. At the show’s first press conference, Guido van Pragg, HP Indigo Asia Pacific, revealed that the Currie Group is the company’s second largest channel distributor in the world.

    David Currie recalled the original approach from Andy Lambert, an Indigo employee at PacPrint 2001, where it all began for the Currie Group. Van Pragg described the transformation of Curries as symbolic of the way the industry has moved from offset technology to digital.

    Other HP announcements saw Colorcorp install a HP Scitex FB7600 industrial press while Anitech said it has entered a collaboration with HP to offer the full range of Designjet printers.
