Eclipse Colour are a privately owned limited company, established in 1999 we moved to our current, purpose built location in 2001. Right from 'day one' we've made a commitment to the latest in press, pre-press and post-press equipment and technologies to ensure we always lead the way in our sector.
In 2004, to compliment the 10 colour and 12 colour Heidelberg B1 cutstar presses, we commissioned a 16pp M600 Web press, complete with the comprehensive Scheffer inline finishing system, allowing for complex folded and glued products to be finished direct from the press, saving both production time and money. The introduction of a second, even faster, 16pp M600 in 2011 more than doubled our web capacity. We have recently replaced the original 10 colour with an even faster XL106 with Inpress control and semi-automatic plate change, giving the shorter make ready times and flexibility now expected by clients.
The acquisition in 2012 of one of the largest independently owned direct marketing companies to form Eclipse 4dm was the start of a 5 year strategy to become the UK's leading marketing services providers. To support this we launched a new cross media division, called Eclipse Red, responding to the growing demand for 4dm's 'Smart Media' portfolio. A range of new technology services covering data insight, web to print, purl's, augmented reality and creative services. The comprehensive solutions business now spans five adjacent production facilities in Kettering, Northamptonshire and is ideally placed for motorway connections to the whole of the UK.
