Twocan takes the lead with a Nyala

Twocan takes the lead with a Nyala
In a bid to extend its reach into the retail, exhibition and live events sector, Twocan Graphics has invested in its first flatbed printer with the purchase of a swissQprint Nyala.

 Twocan Graphics co-founder Mark Wheatley declared: “Anybody can buy a flatbed and use it to produce average quality work, and this is what most of our competitors are doing, but having the Nyala sets us apart from the rest of the pack.

“When we told our clients that we were buying the machine, they were really excited for us,” Mark continued. Most of Twocan Graphics’s work comes from other graphics companies that have contracts with the end clients, and they were very impressed by Twocan Graphic’s investment.

“As soon as they heard it was a swissQprint machine they immediately started asking us to quote for jobs we had never been able to produce before. Now they are sending all of their work our way,” confided Mark. “We never thought for a moment that our first flatbed printer would be a swissQprint, but now we’re producing work we never imagined possible.”

Business partners Mark Wheatley and Roy Farmer are already considering a move to larger premises amid plans to invest in a digital cutting system to sit alongside the Nyala.

Mark (pictured above right with Roy Farmer) observed: “Roy and I like to be cautious about our approach to growing the business and tend to take small steps, but with the Nyala we have taken leaps and bounds. We are now one of the big fish in the small pond because our competitors don’t have the same advantages that we have with the swissQprint machine. It’s a small club to be in, but it’s an elite position, and for clients to give us all their work tells us that we made the right decision.”

The partners started out as school friends, growing up together and later working in Mark’s father’s family-run sign and graphics company. When the family business closed its doors in 2009, the friends founded Twocan Graphics with a view to becoming an established name in the graphic installation sector. During the intervening years, the pair graduated from installing other peoples’ graphics to producing them too.

Today, Twocan supplies a broad range of clients with graphic products ranging from advertising hoardings, giant banners, corporate signs and building wraps to printed backdrops and serves the retail, live event and commercial sectors in both the UK and overseas.
