Contact Originators Reveals £5 Million Investment in New Super Site

Contact Originators, the leading UK graphics origination and flexographic plate manufacturer focused on the corrugated and flexible packaging sectors, has revealed a £5 million investment in new buildings and equipment.

The company suffered a fire in January 2020, which destroyed one of two buildings at its current Bredbury, Stockport site. Having lost 40 percent of its production capacity, along with ancillary services, the business has reportedly continued to successfully grow with support from a number of industry peers. The company is now moving to a new 28,500-foot site in Dukinfield, Manchester, just five miles from the current facility.

“Today, we’re delighted to confirm that our new super site is ready for us to begin our move. With the latest innovations from our technology partners, along with the creation of a fully streamlined, automated facility, Contact is building the future of flexo prepress production,” said Steve Mulcahy, CEO, Contact Originators Group.

While the Bredbury site will remain operational during the transition, the Dukinfield site offers Contact Originators the opportunity to create a state-of-the-art office, studio and production space for its 74 employees.
