A huge effort has gone into perfecting the Digital process and having now set up Digital print operations using Kodak equipment in Malta, Cyprus, London and Tenerife about to start, we have gained the experience and won Publishers confidence. Other sites should be announced shortly. There are exciting developments in technology and we are investigating solutions for larger costly to reach destinations. Shortly, late aircraft and expensive ancillary logistics compounded by bad weather will be a thing of the past and we look forward to working closely with News International in helping to propose such solutions. Above all, I am proud of this all having been made possible by the development of the whole Digital process in Malta. Our team has worked hard and been successful, Kodak are a great partner and we look forward to rolling out further Sites in the coming months.”
