Roland DG (UK) Ltd has officially opened its new Head Office and Creative Centre in Clevedon, near Bristol, in a ceremony officiated by the Global President of Roland DG Corporation, Mr Tomioka. Also present at the event were members of the Roland DG UK team, as well as CEOs and representatives from Roland DG offices around the world.
Jerry Davies, Managing Director, Roland DG (UK) Ltd says: “We’ve had a very successful few years of growth here in the UK, and this state-of-the-art facility gives us everything we need to ensure we can continue to grow and serve all our customers in a manner they deserve and are accustomed to.”
The new Creative Centre is a unique space, showcasing the vast range of applications possible with Roland’s machines and highlighting the markets that customers can sell into including signage, sublimation and textile, retail, personalisation and promotional items, 3D printing, milling and engraving, interior decoration and an array of fun, creative and new applications you wouldn’t expect. Roland’s Creative Centre is designed to inspire, excite and ultimately showcase profitable business opportunities for sign makers, print and 3D professionals and others from across the visual communications industry. Visitors should particularly look out for the photo opportunity wall, where they can travel to outer space and an incredible range of items which have had the ‘Roland treatment’, including a fridge, games machine, mini motorbike and helmet, drum kit, piano, skis, skateboards, wedding albums, 3D printed functional parts and a sailing boat!
With dedicated service and support areas, the new Roland DG HQ houses the RolandCare team and a high-spec Roland Academy training facility which offers a programme of practical technical courses and business bootcamps throughout the year. Mr Davies says the new head office will provide Roland DG with the perfect foundation from which to continue to build its business in the coming years.
Continues Mr Davies: “We’ve been eagerly awaiting the official launch of our new Head Office and I’m very proud of the team and the work they’ve put in to get us to this great day. It’s a fitting tribute to all their hard work to not only have our global president here for the opening, but also representatives from Roland offices from across the world. This truly is an outstanding facility and one we believe to be unique in the industry in terms of both its size and scope of what it offers customers. We look forward to welcoming visitors to our new home.”
A full schedule of open days and training events giving customers the opportunity to experience the Creative Centre will be announced shortly. Visits can also be scheduled by request at any time.
