Andesign invests in a Massivit 1800 3D Printing Solution
Massivit 3D Printing Technologies has announced that Andesign UK, a specialist in large format digitally printed graphics and signage, has installed a Massivit 1800 3D Printing Solution, in a bid to double its turnover to approximately £8 million in the next five years.
The Birmingham-based company decided to invest in the Massivit 1800 to target new business opportunities through its current customer base by maximising the synergies between 3D applications and its existing 2D printing capabilities.
Andy Williams, Founder and Managing Director at Andesign explained: “We were looking to invest in the latest technology in order to elevate our product offering to new heights and make us the acknowledged go-to company for head-turning visual communication projects.
“The Massivit 1800 enables us to do just that, by opening up the 3D print market and expanding our sign and display portfolio. With the unique applications achievable with this solution, we will be able to offer unrivalled products and services.”
The Massivit 1800 was installed in early March by UK distributor CMYUK and is already in full production at Andesign’s facility. The company is planning to showcase its new technology and how this can benefit its customers during an open house in May.
Andy Williams continued: “Our open house will provide the opportunity to kick-start our new business drive. “With live demonstrations of the Massivit 1800, the event will enable our customers to gain further insight into the capabilities of our new technology and thus, the many application possibilities available. These include robust POP, POS, theme park models, event props and museum displays.
“Such is our confidence in the business-generating potential of the Massivit 1800, we expect to increase our turnover to £6 million in the next three years and double it to approximately £8 million in the next five years.”
Utilising the Massivit 1800, as well as other recent investments in ancillary finishing and thermoforming equipment, Andesign aims to exceed its customers’ expectations with an extended range of innovative products.
“The thermoforming technology will go hand-in-hand with the Massivit 1800, enabling us to produce cost-effective customised thermoforming molds. This will add a new dimension to traditional 2D displays,” commented Williams. “We can now enhance these customers’ applications with a creative 3D feature for a more high-impact, visual experience to ensure better audience engagement.”
