Everybody knows that research and development is at the heart of a successful organisation. That is certainly true of Focus, which is one of the reasons that we are the proud sponsors of the 2018 Flexo Tech International Print and Innovations Awards.
Here at Focus, we’re absolutely dedicated to innovation. It’s one of the reasons that we’re sponsors of the 2018 Flexo Tech Innovations Awards, and is also one of the reasons that we pursue partnerships with some of the most dynamic tech firms in the world. In one of our most exciting recent developments, we’ve teamed up with Phoseon, a US-based UV LED manufacturing company. The result has revolutionised flexography. Here’s an introduction to the future.
A lot of ink has been spilt on the future of flexographic printing over the next five years. These speculations range from blog posts and casual tweets to large-scale studies.

So these trends are clearly high-stakes questions in some circles. Click here to purchase the book if you are interested. Or read on for our own thoughts about the way the industry is heading, at no cost at all.

If you’ve been considering purchasing new printing equipment for your business from a UK manufacturer, the low value of the pound is great news. There’s no better time than now to place your order. Our wide range of market-leading printing equipment are on offer for the same rates as earlier in the year. When coupled with the lower value of the pound against the US dollar, this means that you can get your hands on all of our label printing machinery for nearly 20% less than you would have paid just four months ago.
If you had of invested $100,000 in May 2016 you could have purchased equipment worth £64,000. Today the same capital would be worth £79,000 – a huge increase in value.
