W.A.E Group gets ahead with a Jeti!

First established in 1973, the Leeds-based W.A.E Group embraces both modern and traditional sign and graphic techniques, to produce a wide variety of display graphics and signage nationwide for such blue chip companies as National Tyres & Autocare, Royal Mail, Greene King Pub Co and Langtree Group plc, as well providing municipal signage. With a turnover tipping £2.3 million and a staff of 34, it is a company that takes its reputation as a specialist signmaker very seriously.

So when it was recently commissioned to manufacture and install a new nationwide retail display contract, W.A.E Group knew that it would have to ramp up its production capabilities. Managing Director Paul Austin explained: “We realised that our two existing roll-to-roll printers wouldn’t be able to cope with the extra workload and that it was time to invest in a new machine”. And, since the company already own an Agfa :Anapurna XL it knew exactly who to approach.

Paul Austin continued: “We originally acquired the :Anapurna so that we could print directly onto the pre-coated plywood board we use for a number of property development contracts, but, over the years since its installation, we have used it to print onto a whole variety of different substrates and it is still giving sterling service. So when deciding which new wide-format machine we should buy, I was mindful of the excellent support that we had received from Agfa.”

Accordingly, W.A.E purchased an Agfa :Jeti 3312 a 3.2m roll-to-roll grand-format printer, which can easily process substrates up to 3.2m in width, thus enabling the company to simultaneously print two rolls side by side. It also offers true 600 dpi (1200 dpi apparent) resolution, thus maintaining the high print quality that W.A.E’s retail customers demand, whilst also delivering output at a speed of up to 40sq.m/hr making it one of the lowest cost, high resolution printers currently available.

Paul Austin concluded: “I am absolutely delighted with our purchase, the :Jeti is performing very well and can cope with all of the work we are throwing at it and I know that it will continue to help us take the business into exciting new areas for many years to come.”
