Catapult Print installs first Nilpeter FA-26 press with die station in US
Catapult Print has installed a new Nilpeter FA-26 press, marking the latest development in the organization’s mission to redefine print, disrupt the market and drive change in the US marketplace.
The Nilpeter FA-26 is Catapult’s eighth FA-Line press in the last five years but the first in 26in web width. This growth has been driven by the company’s disruptive model and unique offering that’s seen the company grow from a start-up business in 2018 into one of the fastest organically growing label businesses in the US – with a revenue of over USD 50 million.
‘When setting the business up five years ago, we had a passion to be different,’ said Catapult founder and chairman Mark Cook. ‘There really was no point just trying to be another average printer with nothing new to offer. We absolutely came up with a plan, a plan to disrupt the print industry, make print easy and truly deliver what customers really want.
‘So, our latest move is exactly that: it’s print redefined, again. We’ve added our eighth Nilpeter FA-Line, this time a 26-inch, 9-color printing press with a die station, to support the vision of why we set this business up in the first place: to disrupt.
‘The installation of the Nilpeter FA-26 really cements our commitment to ensure we’re giving customers what they want. As we said when we first came to the market, there’s no point being average; that space has been taken.
‘We’re here to shake things up and continue to disrupt the pressure-sensitive label market. Our continued focus on technology, systems, automation and data ensures we have the slickest, quickest and most cost-effective printing business in the whole of the USA marketplace, with 27 percent of all orders out the door within just two days.’
According to Lenny DeGirolmo, president and managing director of Nilpeter USA, Catapult’s explosive growth and towering ambitions align well with Nilpeter’s philosophy.
‘Once again, we must acknowledge that in partnership with Catapult, we are setting new standards for business development and disrupting the industry in terms of innovation, technology, and ambitions,’ said DeGirolmo. ‘Our collaboration has evolved rapidly over the past five years, and Catapult’s acquisition of their eighth FA-Line and first FA-26 with die station in the US is a major success story for both us and them. We are excited for the years ahead.’
Cook is equally enthusiastic about the close collaboration between the two companies: ‘Right from the start, we have had an excellent partnership with Nilpeter. We all pull in the same direction, share the same ambitions and uphold the same high standards. When all of this is in place, together, we have created a foundation to grow and drive our business at the pace we are doing today.’
Catapult Print is one of the leaders in labels and packaging, providing pressure-sensitive, linerless and narrow web films to customers throughout the US and Canada. The company sets itself apart through its commitment to innovative technology, outstanding service and a drive to disrupt the print industry.
‘It’s why we’ve been so successful,’ Cook added. ‘We’ve been saving customers money as well as reducing lead times. The lovely thing is they’re getting enhanced quality, along with unrivaled customer service, which is why we’ve onboarded 55 new customers this year alone.
‘We’d love to see you at our plant in Orlando to show you why we’re the fastest organic growing label company out there. We truly do take cost out, enhance quality, reduce lead times and give the best customer service in the industry.
‘If you want to see how the magic happens and what the 26-inch press can do for your business, then please get in touch. It really is a game-changer and we’re the only ones doing it.’
