There are various gaps in the market where clients need, but are unable to access, smaller machines for their business due to budget and return on investment. Therefore, our mission since 2011 has been to design finishing machines that fit what certain market segments require, not vice-versa. I’m really pleased to welcome this new ‘mini’ addition to complement our existing range of label cutters.”
