Secure and essential communication solutions provider, Adare SEC, part of the Adare Group, has unveiled the latest technology investments at its Redditch site, which will strengthen existing operations and expand its capabilities within its core sectors.
The Huddersfield headquartered business provides technology-led, outbound and inbound secure and essential communication solutions to private and public sector clients. Its solutions help businesses to control the cost, quality, security and efficiency of their printed and electronic documents.
A further substantial £400,000 has been invested by the business into three new, state-of-the-art pieces of machinery at the Redditch site. These will ensure that Adare SEC remains aligned with the demands of the secure solutions market, is able to innovate and continues to provide market leading solutions to its clients.
The first of these investments is a Dimuken foiling and numbering machine. This enables the highly-secure printing of documents, such as event tickets or exam certificates, to help protect against fraud, replication and counterfeiting.
Following an increased market demand for both the ticketing and education solutions, Adare SEC has installed the new machine, which integrates secure holograms and foiling into printed documents, to increase its production capacity and enable greater flexibility to meet different customer requirements in combatting document fraud.
The second marks the addition of new plastic card production technology. Developed in response to a strategic client need, the new machine enables individual cards such as, gift, loyalty or membership cards, to be personalised and then attached to the ‘carrier’ in one secure streamlined process.
Finally, a new booklet making machine completes the trio. An upgrade to an existing machine, Adare SEC has incorporated new technology from Wilstead, which will greatly improve the capacity and efficiency of booklet making.
Barry Crich, managing director of Adare SEC, said: “Adare SEC’s latest investments mark another important step as we continue to establish ourselves at the forefront of the secure and essential communications market and grow our presence within our core sectors.
“It represents a strategic market focus on meeting the increased levels of cross-sector demand for highly-secure printed solutions and re-enforces our commitment to delivering the highest levels of security, innovation, service and quality to our clients.”
This announcement is the latest in what is a year of ongoing investment for the Adare Group as a whole. It follows the acquisition of two competitor companies, Banner Manner Communication and Polestar Applied Solutions – putting Adare SEC at the forefront of the technology-led secure and essential communications market – and a major £3.3m deal with Ricoh to significantly upgrade its printing systems at its Huddersfield site.
