Early in our history, Codico recognised the importance of being local to all of our customers. In 1991, with the support from “Newry and Mourne Enterprise Agencies” giving us an office to start from, we opened our office in WIN Business Park, Newry, Co Down. We are still there 25 years later. Since then not only has the landscape of the manufacturing industry changed but the technology we supply has moved on too.
Our Northern based customers now had a local team to support their needs. Today, with a team of 5 people we offer technical service, spare parts and consumable support for our printers and in recent years we introduced customer technical training from our office.
Over the years we found a varied mixed of sectors to support in Northern Ireland. As our customer base grew so did the range of products we could offer. Starting life out selling and supporting the humble Continuous inkjet printer – CIJ enabling our customers to print best before dates, batch numbering and so on. The first orders came from a selection of industries, some of which are nearly gone now, (Textiles, Aerospace, Automotive, Construction and Dairy) but luckily some new ones have come too (Pharma, Medical Devices etc). Our first machine sales in Northern Ireland were to C&C, Bangor Dairies and Lacpatrick Dairies all for Domino Solo Series Printers.
As you can see the technology has moved on somewhat from the Solo Series to today’s latest continuous inkjet printer, the A520i iTech A-Series from Domino. Fully networkable, the A520i boasts IP65 enclosure rating and a touch screen intuitive control panel, is virtually service-free and can print speeds of up to 510m/minute (single line 5 drop).
We now offer a market leading range of coding and marking equipment such as Co2 Laser, Fibre Laser, Thermal Inkjet, Thermal Transfer and Print and Apply Labellers.
Here’s to the next 25 years serving Northern Ireland and wondering what technological changes are to come with it.
For more information on the A520i or to discuss your coding, marking or labeling requirements, our technical sales team can advise you on the latest applications.
