“The high Speed Buhrs Solution from Promail was the next logical step for Lonsdale Direct Solutions and after much deliberation over the final solution, Promail have once again proven to be our ideal partner.”

“The Lonsdale team have been extremely delighted with the installation, training and continuing levels of service and expertise shown by Promail.”

Simon Swan

Head of Data and Mailing

Lonsdale Direct Solutions, a print manufacturer for design agencies and marketeers, has invested in a High Speed Envelope Enclosing Solution with six rotary stations plus an additional specialist friction feeder for those difficult to feed inserts; along with a three-way camera matching solution reading OCR, BCR and 2D codes and batch kicker for mail sortation. The solution has been supplied and fully refurbished to the highest levels by Promail Limited at their workshop facilities based in Brackley, Northamptonshire, and to Lonsdale Direct Solutions specific requirements.

“The high speed Buhrs Solution purchased from Promail was the next logical step for Lonsdale” said Simon Swan, Head of Data and Mailing for Lonsdale Direct Solutions. “Our extensive knowledge and resources provide a total solution for our clients but as a company we needed increased capacity and as importantly matching integrity byway of a camera system with added reporting functionality to facilitate our ever increasing client list.”

Lonsdale Direct Solutions felt the time was right to add to their existing mailing equipment to facilitate a growing and more diversified customer base with enhanced requirements for their mailings with a faster and more secure solution, said Simon Swan, who also added “The Buhrs High Speed Solution with camera matching was purchased after much deliberation over the end solution. Promail have been a supplier over many years to Lonsdale and once again they have proven to be the ideal partner, the Lonsdale team have been extremely delighted with the installation, training and continuing levels of service and expertise shown by Promail.
