All the right tools for the job

We have recently expanded our colour digital and mono laser print personalisation capabilities with investment in the latest Xerox printing technology. The installation of the new Xerox Versant 4100 and Primelink B9136 machines increases our strong print capacity even further.

 


“KPM will continue with an ambitious investment programme in print and mailing technology. This will ensure we meet our customers’ needs today, tomorrow, and where needed in the future.”
