More Inca Investment by Holland & Crosby

August 10, 2010

Holland & Crosby Ltd., a Mississauga-based printing and marketing company, increased its flatbed, large-format production capabilities by installing an Inca Onset S20, which joins the company's existing, larger Onset S70 machine. 

Back in mid-2008, Holland & Crosby became the first company in Canada to install the mammoth inkjet-based Onset S70 machine to shift further away from its dependence on screen-printing production. Now the smaller Onset S20, sold through Fujifilm Canada, allows Holland & Crosby to provide quicker turnaround, as well as more gloss options and white-ink printing. 

"For the bulk of our work, speed is an issue, and we're able to deliver rush jobs on time with the Onset S20. The Onset S20 has accomplished what we anticipated it would do. For us it's not about its capacity-it's more about our overall efficiency and the ability to print with white," stated company co-owner Scott Crosby. "The Onset S20 has allowed us to finally transition away from screen printing and we became a completely digital facility as of February this year. It has also opened the door for a lot of 'store opening' jobs, which are typically personalized." 

Holland & Crosby also invested in an Inca Digital Onset S70 upgrade program, with a speed increase said to provide a throughput of up to 7,534 square feet per hour, equivalent to 145 full-bed sheets (or 435 60 x 40-inch posters) per hour. 

"It was perfect timing for us. We had an enormous order that required printing white on a coloured material, so it was important to get up and running quickly," stated Richard Labiuk, co-owner of Holland & Crosby. "We already knew that the ability to print white was key and we were doing a lot of white work already. 

"There's also the advantage of less waste," continues Labiuk. "With screen printing, we had to print about 50 overs on a 200 sheet run to assure a good job." 

Holland & Crosby was formed in 1997 with the merger of Holland & Neil Limited and J.W. Crosby Advertising. Today, the 33,000-square-foot facility provides a range of large-format services, from creative and structural design to printing, collating, and packing.
