COT Caribbean Graphics is one of the leading printing houses of the Caribbean and puts its trust in the precision job done by the highly efficient label punching machine Atlas 1110 LS. The cooperation between Blumer and this company shows once more that tailored customer care is also possible in exotic destinations.
Blumer’s high-performance punching machines are used by large printing works all over the world. A white spot so far on our world map of customers was the Caribbean. This changed after a first contact with Nigel Worme, owner and Managing Director of COT Caribbean Graphics, Barbados, at the «Print 2005». The basic interest shown at the exhibition was followed by a concrete request for quotation a few months later. To Nigel Worme, however, the well-known quality of the Atlas 1110 LS wasn't the only criterion to go ahead with the purchase. It was in particular his confidence in the competence and the service performance of Blumer AG. COT Caribbean Graphics were looking for a partner who understands the processes down to the last detail, who gets involved by proposing solution variants and optimization possibilities and, most important, who is present on the spot when needed.
Visits to each other's works in Christ Church and Zurich-Otelfingen soon made it clear that the philosophies of the two small to medium-size businesses are absolutely concurrent: Customer satisfaction and products of top quality are a principal concern to both. Blumer’s punching machines are not only in the lead technologically. The strong demand they enjoy worldwide is also due to the user-friendliness and production safety they provide. If a persistent problem cannot be solved on the phone, the technicians of the subsidiary Blumer (USA) Inc. are only a «jump in the air» away.
Seen statistically, however, it is much more likely that one of our technicians happens to be on Barbados as a holidaymaker.
Brief information on COT Caribbean Graphics, Christ Church, Barbados
COT Caribbean Graphics ranks among the leading printing works of the Caribbean. The enterprise managed by Nigel Worme in the second generation celebrated its 30th anniversary last year. Nigel took over from his father at the young age of nineteen and steadily brought the company on a success course. What started modestly in a cellar is now a modern model company which stands comparison with any European or American establishment engaged in the same trade. With the take-over of its biggest competitor in 1999 and last year's investment in a ROLAND 500 sheet-fed offset press, at the latest, this printing house has risen to a leading enterprise of the graphic industry in Barbados and the entire eastern Caribbean. With the Atlas 1110 LS the company's fleet of equipment is supplemented by a label punching machine which sets benchmarks in this part of the world.
