With eyes on consolidating to improve efficiency, KGK Genix, has recently completed the merger of its production units.
In a significant stride towards enhancing efficiency and streamlining operations, KGK Genix, a leading large format printing company, has recently completed the merger of its production units. This strategic decision has resulted in a substantial increase in production space, reaching an impressive 20,200 square feet. With the incorporation of state-of-the-art machinery, an investment exceeding £1 million in the last 18 months, and a dedicated workforce of 38 production staff, KGK Genix is poised for remarkable growth.
David Pitts (Production Director) says “The integration of production units into a single, expansive space has been a pivotal move. The enlarged production area not only accommodates the latest printing and finishing machinery but also provides the company with a competitive edge, enabling it to meet the increasing demands of the market. The new facility boasts an impressive printing and finishing rate of 420 square meters per hour whilst maintaining quality standards, a significant improvement over previous capabilities. This increased production capacity positions KGK Genix as a reliable and efficient partner for clients seeking quality large format printing solutions with quick turnaround times”
One of the most noteworthy benefits of consolidating production units is the improvement in communication and collaboration among team members. With all production staff working under the same roof, the exchange of ideas and information becomes seamless. This newfound proximity fosters a collaborative environment, leading to enhanced problem-solving, increased innovation, and a more cohesive team all whilst promoting a sense of unity and comaraderie.
Matt Walsh (Operation Director) quoted “By consolidating production units, KGK Genix has not only increased efficiency but also achieved cost and environmental savings. The streamlined workflow and reduced logistical complexities result in quicker project completion times and lower operational costs all whilst reducing carbon footprint significantly due to the reduced movements. We saw it as an opportunity to overhaul our entire workflow and took the opportunity to replace or improve upon the existing equipment whilst keeping a keen eye on the impacts of our carbon footprint. For example, we have removed our gas supply in favour of installing electric cooling and heating units which are much more energy efficient and have a lower impact on the environment which on its own reduced the footprint by 28 tonnes – all new purchases have been made with energy efficiency in mind.
Graham Pitts (Managing Director) said “KGK Genix’s decision to merge production units marks a significant milestone in the company’s journey towards operational excellence. The increased production space, coupled with advanced technology and a unified workforce, positions the company as a leader in the large format printing industry. As KGK Genix continues to thrive, we feel we set a compelling example for other businesses to consider the strategic benefits of consolidating operations for enhanced efficiency, reduced carbon footprint and improved workplace dynamics.
