PFI Sign Plus have been a thriving business in Fife, Scotland since 1992, almost 30 years in the sign and print industry. They never anticipated what would happen last year and, like every other business, had to adapt to the challenges that Covid-19 presented for both local, national and international trade supply. Although it was a challenging year, PFI Sign Plus were able to not only meet, but exceed their annual growth aspirations securing a number of international multi-year contract and framework arrangements.

As part of the PFI Group’s company policy to invest in ‘green’ printing technology at both local and national level, they have recently invested in one of the most desirable roll-to-roll UV gel printers on the market – the Canon Colorado 1650. As part of the upgrade, this innovative industrial printer offers automation, output and sustainability benefits to our business such as:

  • An increase in daily output of circa 300% – more than 10x faster than other mainstream industrial printers.
  • The UV gels print with either a gloss or matt finish, meaning greater production efficiencies.
  • Provides consistent colour profiling – ensuring that client’s artwork is always reproduced in perfect brand matched colours at high speed.
  • Upgrading from their solvent printers – the Canon Colorado 1650 is certified with several accreditations that focus on reducing its impact on the environment and reducing carbon emissions.

Managing Director, James Barbour, says ‘The addition of a second Canon Colorado 1650 to our fleet of group-wide printing technology is a further indication of our commitment to our core business value of innovation. Similarly, this also significantly increases our daily production output to further support the requirements of our international portfolio of clients. The PFI Group continues to be the market leader and vendor of choice for signage supply in both the United Kingdom and Europe.’.
