Sandon Global are manufacturers of new and refurbished anilox rolls, sleeves and gravure cylinders. The company was founded in 2004 after a gap in the market was discovered for a company that could offer the highest calibre anilox, combined with the latest innovations in the market place and an understanding of print unrivalled by our competitors. Based in Runcorn, Cheshire, Sandon Global’s staff have a wealth of knowledge in anilox manufacture accumulating in over 250 years of industry experience.
The company has seen significant growth year on year since its launch and is now successfully developing its export markets. In 2010 due to the success of the business we moved to a new 20,000 square feet site within which we could continue to expand our production. This has included an isolated engineering department and laser room facility with four state of the art high definition thermal optic lasers. The lasers are housed in a clean room condition environment which is climate controlled with anti-vibratory foundation flooring to ensure quality and consistent engravings are produced.
Sandon Global has built its reputation on three key ‘value added’ aspects of its business:
- Consistency - It is crucial throughout our manufacturing process that we maintain the consistency of the anilox from the basic functionality of the engineered base and ceramic to the constancy of a quality engraving. We recognise how important it is to be able to reproduce the same engraving specification time and time again. We understand that our customers depend on this consistency so that they can replicate their print jobs.
- Innovation - From our inception we have put a great deal of emphasis on innovating products to help our customers and their printers. Research and development time is dedicated each month to working on engravings to both create new products and improve existing ones. Many competitors have attempted to replicate our unique cell management designs, however without going through the meticulous development stage they have not been able to duplicate the true potential of these anilox due to our intelligent release characteristics. Sandon Global have designed and developed an unmatched group of Anilox to satisfy all customer needs. Our latest generation of engravings have taken between twelve and eighteen months of research and development. This period of time is crucial to fully understand the technical advances made by analysing them using equipment such as Troika Cell Analysis and our strategic partners who are able to give us time on press to improve our products. Please take a look at the Anilox Engraving section of our website for further information.
- Printing Partnerships - The final characteristic of our business template is partnerships. We believe in an open and honest relationship with our customers and other suppliers to the industry. These constructive relationships allow us to foster long and lasting associations that create a positive environment to overcome problems and improve customer production. We believe that transparency and trust is essential in providing a service that our customers can truly rely upon.
