A Nottingham-based packaging group has invested £2m in new technology in a bid to increase capacity.
The Wilkins Group has purchased a top of the range printing press which will scale up production and improve its products.
Justin Wilkins, sales and marketing director, said: "We decided to make this investment as we wanted to provide a more premium product for our customers, whilst embracing low migration technology as a strategy.
"The machine is configured differently to any similar machines to achieve different techniques and higher quality results. Not only does it help us increase capacity but it will also help keep The Wilkins Group at the forefront of the industry, at the same time as giving our clients a competitive offer.
The investment comes after the Wilkins Group, which specialises in packaging for food, turned over £33m in 2015.
Wilkins added: "We have had another fantastic year and we are always looking into ways to reinvest in our facilities."
