Multigraphics is one of the UK’s leading Point-Of-Sale and Point-Of-Purchase suppliers with unique, large format technology. It’s also the UK’s dominant supplier of banners to the retail/leisure sector. In 2005 we expanded our cardboard engineering department, and now offer a complete design and build service for point of purchase displays and freestanding display units.
Since a 3i backed BIMBO in 2004, the company has grown in size, moved to new purpose built premises and invested over £1m in technology.
With a current turnover of c£9m, we service a wide range of blue chip organisations, including a great many of the UK’s high street retailers, supermarkets, restaurant chains, breweries, agencies, print management companies and fellow printers, with high quality banners, point of sale and point of purchase, printed either screen or digitally.
We have some of the biggest screen presses in Europe with an impression size of 3.7m x 1.6m and our three machines (two, four and five colours) enable us to print very large formats in 4 or 5 colours in one pass.
We continually invest heavily in large format digital print capability and now have three Vutek web presses (2 x 5m, 1 x 2m) and a 2m flatbed Vutek.
We are currently working towards ISO9001 and PAS75 accreditation and to further enhance our efficiency we are integrating a full MIS system.
In addition to our printing capabilities we have a comprehensive finishing department carrying out die cutting, hemming, eyeleting, stitching, collation, packing and shrink-wrapping. For some clients we operate a ‘pick and pack’ capability distributing a wide variety of printed matter direct to the stores. Having all facilities in-house allows us complete control at every stage of every job, with no necessity to involve a third party. In addition, we have our own transport department, with a fleet of vehicles delivering nationwide daily.
We have won several quality awards including a FESPA Gold award for quality in 2003 and the DSPA ‘large format digital’ award in 2005.
Whether you need a one-off banner or 2,000 Foamex display boards we have the right equipment to produce a high quality job, efficiently and cost effectively.
