Leading online store, Selectequip, has recently refurbished their Wakefield sign company and subsequently been shortlisted for a best small business award.
The new showroom-type environment allows business clients to view their capabilities in a comfortable surrounding while also allowing them to hold their own meetings in the new 16-seater boardroom. With strong growth over the last 18 months, Selectequip’s investment in a Mimaki JFX200-2531 and Kongsberg X24 Starter, purchased from CMYUK, has allowed them to keep up with increasing demand.
“Sue and Nick from CMYUK helped us to identify the machinery we required and explained exactly what it would do for us in the short, medium and long term. We know we can grow into the new machinery as we continue to learn new skills.” says Henry Spence, MD at Selectequip.
Selectequip also purchased iCUT Suite software, that makes adding cut lines and bleed easy. Another purchase from CMYUK was the ArtiosCAD software, giving their designers access to a massive array of re-scalable Point of Sale display stands and packaging designs for creating their own shipping containers.
Spence continues, “The training from CMYUK has been excellent, they have ensured we are in a position to get the machines working for us and also allowing us to learn more and expand our capabilities each day. When we have hit a road block, CMYUK has been there to help us move forward; their support is invaluable.”
Nick Reed, ESKO Business Manager at CMYUK, concludes “When we met Selectequip during their visit to the CMYUK demonstration facility in Shrewsbury, we could tell they were very passionate and determined to purchase the very best machinery for their requirements. Listening to their plans for the future of the business, the Mimaki and Kongsberg pairing made perfect sense.”
The JFX200-2531 benefits from leveraging innovative LED UV curing technologies and highly productive print speeds up to 252/h and 12.5m2/h with simultaneous white ink printing. With a working area of 1680mm x 3200mm, the Kongsberg X24 Starter is perfect for a wide range of signage materials. The air-cooled milling bit assures edge quality during high-speed milling of acrylics and other synthetics. These have allowed Selectequip to bring jobs that would have previously been sent to other companies, in-house.
