Established 14 years ago, Fastsigns Gloucester already offers a wide range of signage and printed display solutions for the construction, manufacturing, education, healthcare, housing, retail, events and exhibitions sectors.

The company has been keen to expand on this, as well as enhance its in-house production capabilities, which led it to the purchase of the new X20.

Fastsigns Gloucester’s X20 purchase included a router, rigid material blade, kiss cut blade and diamond polishing bit, while the equipment was also configured with a camera registration system to help ensure accurate cutting, folding and engraving.

Dave Riddell, part of the team at Fastsigns Gloucester’s, says the machine will allow the company to bring more work in house and boost its revenue as a result.

“We want to service our loyal customers much more comprehensively,” Riddell explains, adding: The Kongsberg is not only about making things faster – it’s allowed us to do things such as contour cutting shapes and letters that we couldn’t do before. 

“We’re undergoing training on-site and this is igniting so many ideas and additional possibilities for the business.

“Going forward, we’re aiming to increase our overall sales and profit on products that we used to subcontract out and items that we used to fabricate by hand, further improve on quality and shorten lead times.”
