Ricoh UK announces new partnership with CCA Occasions, the UK’s leading personalised print producer

Ricoh UK has today announced a new partnership with one of the UK’s leading producers of printed personalised products, CCA Occasions.

CCA Occasions purchased a range of new production print technology including RICOH Pro C9500 (135ppm) with N-70 Fiery controller, 960mm banner feed, vacuum feed, high-capacity stacker, production staple finisher and Auto Colour Diagnostics Units. This represents a significant strategic investment by CCA Occasions with the new technology used to expand revenue streams, enhance operational efficiency and provide new capabilities including the production of gift cards containing magnetic stripes.

Lancashire-based CCA Occasions, who have a long history in the production of greeting cards and stationery, have recently acquired the rights to produce short-run gift cards containing magnetic strips for several clients. The company needed a technology partner to enable them to fulfil these new requirements and Ricoh was selected based on the unrivalled innovation of its products and associated software, all of which are designed to elevate productivity and quality.

Tim Carter, Commercial Print Director at Ricoh Graphic Communications, commented: “CCA Occasions have a long history of success in Lancashire and across the UK, and we’re delighted to be partnering with a print business whose roots go back 100 years. As with all our partners, we’ve built a strong relationship and worked tirelessly to thoroughly understand the company’s business requirements - not just today but, most importantly, in the future as the business is looking to expand into new markets.’ He continued: ‘I’m delighted that Ricoh technology, particularly our latest digital colour sheetfed press, continues to lead the way in innovation across the graphic communications industry, enabling commercial printers to achieve workflow efficiency and cost optimisation.”

Gary Taylor, General Manager at CCA Occasions, said of the partnership: “Partnering with Ricoh has been a critical step in planning for our future and long-term business strategy. As we expand into new business ventures and territories, this strategic investment and ongoing support from Ricoh will be crucial for our growth and future success.”
