Founded by Mr. Edouard Borney in 1880, Borney started off in textiles, moving on to flags and banners in the 1920s, and finally expanding into printed fabrics in the 1980s. BorneyUK was established in 1993 and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, as well as 138 years of growth for the company as a whole.
With clients such as TOYOTA, The NHS, Thomas Cook and Peterborough FC, Borney is respected in the industry for their high-quality signs, flags and banners. They recently purchased a Mimaki UJV55-320 from CMYUK, enabling them to increase their capacity by 62%. Donna Geranio, General Manager at Borney, says: “The speed and quality of print from this machine is second to none. It has allowed us to be much more competitive on turnaround times and given us full control when doing big tenders. I’d give it a perfect 10/10!”
The Mimaki UJV55-320 UV roll to roll printer is a great addition to the fleet of printers already utilised by Borney and offers them an increased printing width of up to 3.2 metres on a wider range of substrates including vinyls, banners and textiles. The dual roll feature (which is a standard accessory) also allows Borney to take advantage of printing multiple smaller rolls simultaneously. Prints come off the UJV55-320 instantly dry and ready for use. As the printer uses LED technology it also allows the use of heat sensitive medias.
Geranio concludes: “The service we have received from CMYUK, in particular from Sue Hayward and Aaron Clarke, has been fantastic and made the purchase and installation process seamless.”
