"This funding has paved the way for a successful business, allowing us to invest in state-of-the-art software, benefiting both our in-house team and our customers, and created an additional three new jobs.”

Creation Reprographics is a UK specialist in packaging artwork, reprographics and plate production.

Headquartered in Daventry, Northamptonshire, Creation Reprographics (Creation) works across the food and drink, personal and home care, horticulture and pharmaceutical markets designing solutions for labelling, folding carton, rigid and flexible packaging applications.

Creation has successfully advanced its continuous improvement strategy following a grant from the University of Derby’s Invest to Grow programme. Funding investment at the company has enabled enhanced customer service and operational efficiency with the implementation of Esko’s WebCenter communications solution.

In order to obtain the capital required to implement WebCenter, the company successfully applied for funding from the University of Derby’s Invest to Grow programme. In return, Creation coordinates with the University to explore ways to advance technology and develop new talent through further student and graduate jobs.

WebCenter’s launch at Creation has led to a leaner production process, with superior communications capabilities achieving the goals of enhancing customer satisfaction, building brand reputation and boosting exports. The programme has also delivered substantial cost and time savings, estimated at around 30 per cent, as well as increased production capacity. It has also helped the company to win international business, opening new doors in Poland, Belgium and Germany.

The relationship with the University of Derby has also allowed Creation to future-proof and upskill its workforce, encouraging and nurturing the next generation of talent.
Matt Francklow, Managing Director, Creation Reprographics:

“Since 2015, the investment has created further opportunities for us and allowed us to expand and diversify our activities. This funding has paved the way for a successful business, allowing us to invest in state-of-the-art software, benefiting both our in-house team and our customers, and created an additional three new jobs.”

“We have been very impressed with the Invest to Grow team - their clear guidance and expertise from day one has been second to none. Without them, we would have not been able to build the business to where it is now.”
