Ace Binding, trade finisher in the West Midlands - chasing growth
Formed only seven years ago, Ace Binding has rapidly expanded in terms of size and plant machinery, and the company’s latest acquisition is an MBO B30/644 Efficiency buckle folding machine.
Says director Rob Hart: “We regularly invest in new equipment to update our capabilities and improve the service to our customers. We already have Friedheim-supplied equipment on-site, so I know the company well. I also believe that MBO folders are the best machines on the market for trade finishers, and for us the B30 is the perfect model to fulfill our present requirements.”
MBO B30 B1 folder was bought on the stand at The Print Show 2016 and installed in March
Based in Birmingham in the West Midlands, Ace specialises in PUR, Wiro, Spiro and perfect binding. The company also offers folding from B1 to miniature in formats, as well as in-line endorse folding, and other finishing services that include laminating, glued mailers, guillotining, shrink wrapping, punching, cutting and creasing.
All these activities are carried out by an experienced, professional staff of 40 who are capable of handling projects both large and small, aided by the plant list that currently totals 18 different types of machine.
Says Rob Hart: “Since the machine has been installed we have seen productivity increase giving us more capacity. The machine is easy to make ready and has nothing to cause concerns when running, so basically runs all day long!”
