A step in time

To celebrate its long-standing partnership with Soyang Technologies, the team at Soyang Europe has created a unique timeline graphic, which has been installed at its Lancashire headquarters.

The project, which visualises key moments in Soyang’s history, begins with the original Hangzhou Daya PVC Tarpaulin Trading Company being founded in 1999, before going on to establish Soyang Technologies five years later.

“The timeline is a great way of illustrating how far we’ve come and how much Soyang has grown over the last 20 years,” explained Soyang Europe’s Managing Director, Mark Mashiter. “Installing it at our headquarters provides all of our visitors with the opportunity to understand and be part of Soyang’s history. It was printed and installed by Image Co in Leeds and it did a smashing job.”

The timeline graphic, which measures over 9.5m long, was printed onto Polycril GW, a printable, seamless wall covering, which is distributed by Soyang Europe, and is ideal for covering large areas.

The design features Images of the Soyang, UK and Chinese flags flying together, as well as the significant moment in 2004 when Mark Mashiter signed contracts with Lily Li, founder of Soyang Technologies. Also included are images of premises past and present, including the company’s former facility in Bury, and its current distribution centre at Calder House in Altham, which has space to store over 1.5 million metres of material.

The design also pays homage to the significant investment Soyang Technologies has made in its manufacturing facilities over the last 20 years, highlighting new coating lines and the state-of-the-art factory that opened in Haining, China in 2013.

Mark Mashiter concluded: “We’ve come a long way since 1999 and, as the most recent images show, a big investment is being made in the new Chinese factory so it can develop the next generation of printable textiles. It’s a good job that we have a lot of wallspace, so that we can extend the timeline to include all of the new memories we plan to create!”
