Buxton Press invest in KOLBUS kit

With their business projected to continue the current pattern of growth in catalogue, magazine and brochure production Buxton Press have placed an order with KOLBUS UK for a new perfect binding line. It will replace two ageing Wohlenberg lines and alone will be faster and more efficient than the two it replaces.
The line is the latest version of the KOLBUS KM 610 perfect binder and comes with PUR gluing facility. It will be a unique installation with a 90° turn in the gathering line to facilitate a 16 hopper gatherer.
Buxton Press MD, Kirk Galloway, said: “We were looking for a faster, more efficient binding line and the KOLBUS KM 610 fitted our criteria perfectly. Despite the recent KOLBUS/Muller Martini announcement we were completely re-assured by the level of service and back-up from KOLBUS and the new organisation.
Robert Flather, MD KOLBUS UK, said “We have worked with Buxton Press for many years and it is particularly pleasing that they have shown their confidence in our ability to deliver a high level of service by placing this order with us. KOLBUS UK will continue to supply service and parts for the KM 610 line for the full duration of its warranty, ensuring that our relationship with Buxton Press will continue.”
