DEP announce the commissioning of a new coating line in the UK
DEP have recently commissioned a new coating line in their Runcorn facility to meet growing demand for DEP coated print products and to offer an enhanced capability to its contract coating customers.
DEP is one of the leading independent manufacturers and suppliers of high quality coated products. With a history stretching back over a century, DEP has precision clean room coating facilities in the UK supported by a highly experienced development and manufacturing team. DEP’s range of products for the print market, together with specialist contract coating capability, aims to meet the most demanding requirements.
The coating line is added to the existing ISO Class7 clean room coater and converting capability in the ISO9001 approved manufacturing site. Jack Kahn, the owner of DEP, commented: “Commissioning this coater in 2017, with Mayer rod coating, adds capacity and improves efficiency of our branded products used in the print and labelling industry. It has also broadened the coating technology offered to our contract coating customers, particularly those seeking self-wound and lower coat weight coatings.”
The existing precision coating line will continue to manufacture products which require clean room manufacturing and handle higher coat weight products used in the Medical, Imaging and Security markets.
Ian Sargeant, technical manager at DEP, added, “We are excited to be able to offer new capability to our customers. Obviously the new capacity is important but, critically, it’s backed up by a team of operators and a technical team with extensive coating experience and a passion to ensure DEP offer the best possible service to our customers.”
