Colourtone Aries expands premises to maximise service

Western Cape's printing and packaging powerhouse, Colourtone Aries, is expanding its factory in Elsies River to include its entire printing and packaging capabilities under one roof. The larger premises will house the traditional printing business at its current premises and the packaging services, previously located in Brackenfell, moves to Elsies River.
Colourtone Aries managing director, John Bywater, says, "Our focus is on streamlining our business' core offerings to benefit our clients. Improved output by combining the two divisions under one roof makes perfect sense. This allows for closer operations between the disciplines, reducing costs for and improving productivity levels. The benefit to the client is one of cost and improved turnaround times in some applications."

Not only will the added premises provide staff with an improved working environment, it will also enhance productivity levels by combining the disciplines of both factories. The benefit of improved output derived from the packaging factory moving to Elsies River will be passed on to clients.

John continues, "Our focus is in increased levels of productivity, streamlining costs and improved service to clients. The consolidation of both factories on one premises not only makes economically sound sense, it allows us the opportunity to significantly increase our total service offering to clients. Print and packaging in the modern era are two sides of the same coin. Being able to combine the two allows more effective job processing."

The housing of the two factories on one site brings the best of both worlds to the client. Shorter turnaround times on complex printing and packaging jobs, the combination of digital printing and packaging solutions and the speed of production allows for more accurate and cost-effective pricing models that benefit clients.

John concludes, "Our staff and management are delighted at the prospect of a vastly improved factory environment. We take pride in providing superior working conditions for our workforce, which allows for increased levels of staff motivation that results in higher productivity levels. A win-win situation for us, the industry and our clients."
