Antalis makes its mark on Yorkshire with boosted facility

Antalis the world’s leading visual communications products, brings regional stock and a new state-of-the-art conversion facility to its Leeds distribution centre.

Gaining access to the world’s leading visual communications solutions has just become a whole lot easier for commercial printers, POS printers and signmakers operating in Yorkshire, as Antalis brings regional stock and a new state-of-the-art conversion facility to its Leeds distribution centre.

As part of vast growth plans for its visual communications arm, the business has invested in reconfiguring the centre in order to accommodate the local stocking of a comprehensive range of fast moving rigid and digital roll media from leading brands such as Orafol, 3A, Drytac and Coala.

This latest move has been designed to enhance the customer experience by enabling faster delivery, in addition to the flexibility of being able to collect products as required direct from the centre.

In addition, the business has invested heavily in adding a new market-leading conversion machine to the site, meaning the team can convert to each customers’ requirements. As another big plus for time-stretched commercial printer, signmaker and POS printer, this means that the Antalis team can deliver materials to customers to their exact specification so that they can go straight into production.

Ian Webb, Visual Communications Business Director and Marketing Director UK & Ireland at Antalis said: “We know that our customers are under immense time and cost pressures, so we want to do everything we can to make their lives that little bit easier.

“We have therefore invested heavily in updating our Leeds regional hub to include stocking of our core visual comms inventory, meaning customers operating in Yorkshire can quickly and easily get their hands on all types of products as and when they need them. What’s more, with a new conversion machine on site, supported with our skilled team, we can actually deliver products to them to the required size and format, meaning less hassle and minimised downtime.

“Given the nature of the current visual comms market, where it isn’t uncommon for orders to come in last minute and with tight deadlines, this increased service offer ensures that our customers can get a wide range of materials to their specific needs so they can get the job done quicker.”

Importantly, as always for Antalis, it’s not just about the products but about providing the expertise behind them, which is why the new facility will be supported with a full team of experts to provide advice and full technical support. Customers will also be able to take advantage of the Antalis Academy training facility and its unique hardware solutions, as well as a samples offer.

Ian adds: “In these changing times, commercial printers and signmakers must remain progressive and fast-moving in order to stay ahead of the innovation curve. Through our new facility, our remit is to help in this by providing the ultimate one-stop-shop for the full scope of visual communications needs in the Yorkshire region, coupled with expert support.”
