Chippenham firm closes in on £4million Landmark
Investment in industry leading technology and uptick in overseas orders from Canada, Germany and the US - results in leap in revenues…
Despite continued levels of uncertainty within the manufacturing industry, local firm Fascia Graphics is expecting to increase its turnover by 10 per cent to £3.75million this year. The Chippenham based company has doubled its revenues over the last decade, and continues to lead the market for the production of graphic overlays and membrane keypads.
Fascia has put down its success to recent investments in market leading technology - such as the Sakurai MS80-SD, a state of the art, servo-driven cylinder press – which is the only one operating in the UK. As a result, Fascia is now working with a further 100 new customers. The company now supplies over 800 customers domestically and globally.
Paul Bennett, Managing Director of Fascia Graphics said:
“Our investments this year have certainly seen us steal a march on our competitors. The new line has increased our production capabilities and ensured that we can continue to supply product at a competitive price.
The proportion of international work is also increasing significantly with strong demand from customers in Canada, Germany and the US. We’ve also been shortlisted for The Financial Mail Made in Britain Award – which is testimony to our continued success.”
Fascia’s winning technology investments…
Earlier this year, Fascia became the first company within its industry to invest in the Sakurai MS80-SD, a servo-driven cylinder press which reduces the company’s carbon footprint by over 25 per cent. This was followed by an investment into the latest Pick and Place technology, which is the most effective surface mount placement machine currently on the market, increasing production capability and enabling Fascia to continue to supply products at competitive prices.
