Purchase of Two New Enclosing Machines From Promail Further Boosts TPF Direct's Firepower

29 January 2005.

TPF Direct, the transactional and direct mail arm of TPF Group, has added to its rapidly growing technological armoury with the purchase of two new Kalmar KC45 Rotary Suction Fed Envelope Inserters from Promail. The 250,000 investment takes TPF Direct's total technology investment in the 18 months since launch beyond the 2m mark. TPF Group as a whole has invested more than 10m in total in new machinery over that period and has also just announced plans to invest at least 3m in new technology at its new West London premises. This ongoing investment programme signals the company's intention to ensure that its ambitious expansion plans have the technical firepower to match.

The KC45's each have a capacity of 12,000 envelopes per hour, and initial testing indicates that they will deliver production improvements of up to 50%. In addition to enhanced speed and efficiency the new servo-driven machines also provide major benefits in terms of rapid set-up times and a high level of flexibility.

Commenting on the reasons for choosing Promail, Phil Brooks, Managing Director of TPF Direct said:

"More than anything it was the versatility factor that clinched the deal for us. The KC45's well thought out design has simplified machine set up and allows us to enjoy exceptional production speed and quality regardless of envelope size, which is a massive advantage. It helps us keep delivering to the ambitious service levels that our clients demand even when the variety and complexity of work is on the increase. This in turn maintains our competitive edge over other suppliers.

Not only have Promail delivered market-leading kit, they've also demonstrated that they have the service support to match, with first class training and support levels, underpinned by tight SLAs. This is our first major purchase from Promail but I'm sure it won't be the last"

Daran Hanson, Sales and Marketing Director of Promail added:

"Promail are delighted to be associated with TPF Direct. This is a real coup for Promail when you look at the wide industry choice available to a company of TPF Direct's standing.

The Kalmar KC45 seems to be making big waves in the industry, based on not only its speed and versatility but just as importantly the whole buying and after sales experience we offer at Promail."
