Trade finishing companies Taskforce and ACA have announced details of a new joint venture aimed at capturing more work from the market.

ACA and Taskforce will remain financially independent

The arrangement will see ACA pass saddle-stitching, binding and pharmaceutical folding work to Taskforce, while Taskforce will send work to ACA that requires enhancing services including UV varnishing and foiling.

Both companies remain entirely financially independent, while there will be no transfer of equipment.

“During the pandemic, ACA has moved further into the packaging sector and invested in die-cutting, die-making and folder-gluing,” ACA director Dara Changizi says. 

“We still have a strong base of commercial printers working with us and we will continue to offer many specialist finishes, not least laminating, coating and varnishing, embossing and debossing and Wire-O- binding. 

We heard that ACA were selling a binding line and so it made sense to talk

“However, it makes sense for us to use Taskforce for the stitching and binding work. We are just 60 miles apart and, with our own fleet of vehicles, we can collect or deliver quickly and speedily.”

Alex Porteous, managing director of Taskforce, adds: “We heard that ACA were selling a binding line and so it made sense to talk. 

“In fact we had recently bought a 12-station Muller Martini Pantera which has quick set up, is compact and can change easily from hot melt to PUR. The surprise for us and ACA is that we haven’t talked before this; it’s a very good fit.”
