Royal Mail Install Breaks Record for Vivid
Royal Mail set a record for one of the biggest ever orders placed at Vivid. FOUR VeloBlade Nexus wide-format digital die-cutting systems were installed in one week at Royal Mail during the month of March!
Royal Mail purchased four VeloBlade Nexus bespoke wide-format digital die-cutting systems, each with front-end stack auto-feeders for full system automation. The Nexus systems are initially to be utilised for the manufacture of York sleeves for Royal Mail’s roll containers across the business.
The installations were split across Royal Mail’s two Super Hub sites, two in Warrington and the other two at its Midlands Super Hub, based in Northampton. Where more than one million items and parcels are processed daily.
Initial conversations regarding specifications lead to subsequent visits by the Royal Mail management team to Vivid’s showroom in Ashby de la Zouch. Where thorough material cutting was tested and completed, along with cut-timing calculations to ensure that volumes could be completed in the required time frame.
The VeloBlade Nexus wide-format digital die-cutting system was seen as the perfect solution for The Royal Mail’s requirements, with Vivid’s responsiveness, flexibility and all-round ‘can-do’ attitude being highlighted as strong contributing factors to Vivid securing the order.
Congratulations to our Sales Executive, Duncan Cross, for facilitating this investment with Royal Mail from start to finish and, as a result of his hard work and dedication, achieved an incredible record-breaking sales order for Vivid!
