The company is also updating technology as fast as it can to stay at the forefront of a difficult market and has just purchased the latest Ideal Guillotine through AM International.
Print production manager Steve Aukett says that with Kerikeri's existing growth projected to balloon out to city size in the next 20 years, it is imperative for any company to have the latest technology to stay abreast of its market.
And with Kerikeri four hours drive from Auckland, reliability and back up service were critically important to the company if there were any problems with equipment.
They subsequently settled on the Ideal brand after considerable research and then literally installed the guillotine themselves.
Steve says they haven't been disappointed and the new guillotine has reduced cutting times noticeably.
"We're certainly putting a lot more work through it than we were with the old one. It's absolutely brilliant. It is very user friendly and not too complicated and the digi-cut programme is easy to run."
The guillotine has a number of features including an electro-mechanical blade drive and a hydraulic clamp drive making the clamping pressure infinitely adjustable. It has a foot-pedal for pre-clamping and an optical cutting line.
The table depth is 520mm and it has a narrow cut of 22mm to 65mm using a high quality Solingen steel blade.
It also comes with a 10-button key pad for pre-setting measurements and a memory key for repeat cuts. The programmable EP back gauge control module has nine programmes and there is an eject function for pushing out the paper.
