Leading Edge becomes a 3M Select Gold Partner
Leading Edge Signage and Graphics, which operates from facilities in West Yorkshire, Livingston and London, has been appointed as a 3M Select Gold Partner.
Having used 3M films and product support for its vehicle wrapping and fleet graphics activities since its inception in 2007, Leading Edge’s Gold Partner status confirms its proficiency when using the materials on both private cars and vans, and commercial vehicles, including large trucks, buses and coaches.
As a national sign company, Leading Edge offers a broad portfolio of skills and services, which include sign design, interior graphics and ADA compliant signage, using a wide range of media, and in-house facilities.
Commenting on the company’s Select Gold Partner status, Matthew Evans, Managing Director of Leading Edge said:, “The quality of 3M materials and processes provides the perfect foundation for us to deliver excellent services to our customers and now, as a Gold Partner, we will continue to work with 3M to push the boundaries and deliver innovative solutions to all our customers.”
The global 3M Select initiative qualifies partners against a set of 15 criteria, which cover standards of equipment and quality of work, and examine aspects such as the production environment, materials storage, adherence to a 3M Code of Conduct, execution of a Matched Component System (MCS), quality control, and staff training.
Moreover, 3M supports the programme with its MCS Warranty, which is widely regarded as one of the most comprehensive in the industry. The warranty covers not only the film but all the complementary elements too, including ink, adhesive and protective coating, thus guaranteeing that the entire graphic will maintain its appearance and deliver long-term all-weather durability.
The programme in the UK and Ireland has two levels: Platinum and Gold. Currently, four companies are qualified as 3M Select Platinum Partners and nine, including Leading Edge, as 3M Select Gold Partners.
