Print industry role for Rollem MD

  • News

Rollem Managing Director, Stuart Murphy, is one of four new Council members for Picon, which represents suppliers to the printing, publishing, papermaking and paper converting industries.

Newcomers to Council are Iain Bullock from Renz, Tim Cox from Vpress, Ryan Miles from Heidelberg and Stuart Murphy from Rollem. Upfront asked the quartet what it was they valued about Picon membership and what they hope to add now that they have joined Council. The networking opportunities are important to all four, with Stuart identifying the special benefits this provides to SMEs: “There’s real value in having access to a network of businesses facing similar issues and sharing similar experiences. As well as providing a sounding-board for ideas, it gives us a degree of comfort.”

Iain prizes the “open, and if necessary confidential, discussions with individuals performing a similar role to myself in the industry”, while Ryan lists the benefits as “networking, industry identity, collective thinking, industry promotion and heritage.” For Tim, membership represents a barometer on the industry, our peers and competitors.”

The new blood brings to Council a historical understanding of where the organisation has come from and where its priorities should be going forwards (Iain), insight into areas such as cloud-based architecture and complex integration (Tim), and an engineering pedigree and northern background! (Stuart). Ryan believes his experience with a global manufacturer presence will benefit the wider membership.

Rollem launches rental service for print finishing systems

  • News

Rollem are responding to the ever-changing print finishing market by engaging with a partner organisation in the financial services sector, to create an offer for customers and potential customers as an opportunity to “test the water” in a new market or product area, by renting a production line or specific modules on a short-term agreement.

As companies look to secure their future by diversifying into new products or markets, this can drive the need for new capacity or capability, which means investing hard earned capital in machinery to deliver this, with the risk that the new venture does not deliver the anticipated result. Rollem’s latest initiative now allows them to explore new opportunities, and at the same time to limit their longer-term exposure.

The modular nature of much of Rollem’s equipment allows them to design and create bespoke production lines with specialised capability, using generic modules combined with application specific software. These can be assembled in relatively short periods of time and installed on a customer site ready to capitalise on the new opportunity.

The customer can the test out the business, and, once the market has been assessed and established, the equipment can be either, purchased outright with appropriate credit given for the sum already paid in rent, or returned to Rollem.
