Displayways invests after 28% increase in sales
Following the purchase of the business in September 2012 owners Peter Sheldrick and Rob Kelly invested an initial 250K in new plant and recruitment of key staff. After a period of significant growth on the back of the investment Displayways were able to invest once again and have, in January 2015, completed a programme of works and purchases that will provide a platform for further growth, increased capability and capacity and improved customer service.
The investment totals 500K and includes a move to new offices, creation of showroom including an “ideas room”, a new Mimaki JFX500 UV 3m x 2m Flatbed printer, a new Agfa Annapurna 3200 3.2m wide UV roll to roll printer, new workflow systems and new finishing equipment.
Rob Kelly, Managing Director said, “The machine purchases make up the bulk of the investment and were made after a period of in-depth research into which new machines on the market would produce the best quality Direct to Media and Roll to Roll large format print. We service markets where quality and service play a more prominent role in the decision making process and for this reason Displayways has always sought to invest in machines that lead the way in quality production”.
Additionally after months of research and testing the company will be launching two new graphics products in the coming months. These will be new to the high end graphics production solutions currently available in the marketplace.
Kelly continued “The business has a fantastic reputation for delivering complicated graphics projects at the bespoke end of the markets it serves and providing a partnership service to designers and end clients. Our clients look to us to provide advice and ideas, the new products will support the strategy of continuing to enhance our capabilities in being able to deliver solutions others cannot”.
