The Central Group moves forward by acquiring the latest in digital printing technology.

Mississauga, ON – May 27, 2019 – The Central Group is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Barberán Jetmaster 1750 digital printer to be delivered to The Central Group fall of 2019.

A note from Central’s CEO Rick Eastwood

This single pass digital technology will allow The Central Group to offer its current clients and future customers an unparalleled advantage to their business.  With near litho printing direct to multiple substrates the Jetmaster from Barberan increases flexibility, customization while reducing inventories, obsolescence and driving cost savings through efficiency and the elimination of printing plates.

The UV inks available with the Jetmaster offer a high-quality print on mottled paper surfaces reducing the need for premium coated surfaces, which often come at higher costs. In addition, spot varnish technology allows for precise register for secondary applications and the highlighting of specific features and areas of the printed content.

The Jetmaster is an exciting forward-looking addition to Central’s full-service capabilities. Our goal is to continue to offer top performing products, innovations, and services to optimize our customer’s growth.
