Mailing house Cavalier Mailing Services has taken on a raft of additional kit to boost its capacity and quality as it marks a record year of trading.

The Norwich-based business, which has traded from the same site in Rackheath since 1986, has purchased two new mono laser printers, a Xerox D110 and a Canon ImageRunner Advance DX, and fitted an X-Jet high resolution inkjet system to its existing purpose-built Sitma wrapping line.

Supplied by Landall, the new Xerox device was installed in November, a few months after the Canon printer went in last June. The machines, which have joined several existing smaller laser printers, have become the company’s new main production devices and enabled it to turn work around at faster speeds and print onto thicker substrates.

Meanwhile, the X-Jet variable data printing machine, supplied by AMS Mailing Systems and installed in January, is suitable for a broad range of mail services, including envelopes, postcards, and unwrapped (naked) brochures. With two heads, it can print postage indicias and addresses in one pass.

Total investment for the three pieces of new kit was around £45,000.

Financial director Nigel Greengrass said: “As the industry has changed significantly in recent years, Cavalier Mailing is constantly looking to evolve its processes to ensure that our clients are provided with a speedy, quality service.”

The business also operates CMC and Buhrs envelope enclosing lines, a CMC poly line – alongside the aforementioned Sitma line, several smaller laser printers, and a tabbing machine.

The business is due to report a record turnover of over £3m for its financial year ending March 2023, up around 25% on 2022, which it has achieved despite the tough trading conditions of the past few years. It partly attributed this rise to an equal focus on both looking after existing clients and proactively scoping out new business.

“We believe that our success is due to evaluating our market and operating procedures whilst not standing still during what have been difficult trading years for most industries,” Greengrass added.

From its 1,486sqm site, Cavalier Mailing Services’ 20 staff serve public sector clients including county councils and borough councils, private businesses, print management companies, and major brands.
