The directors here at Compass have a long standing relationship with Sterling, having financed their very first machine back in 1990, and every major capital investment since. During this time, Sterling have grown their business substantially, diversified their product offering and moved into a purpose built factory that allows a seamless throughput of work.
Over the last five years, Sterling has invested in new technologies that streamline their production; funding over £10m in high value capital equipment. The most notable of these investments are the two Heidelberg XL105-10P presses that have revolutionised the speed at which ink is put on paper and kept Sterling on the cutting edge of technology.
In order to secure the funding of these machines, we worked closely with the directors of the business and ensured that a comprehensive proposal was submitted for underwriting. This became even more crucial for the second machine as the credit crunch was in full swing and every penny had to be accounted for. However, the end result meant that each installation went forward as scheduled and Sterling could meet the high levels of service they offer their clients.
