Rocket Graphics has announced expansion of its site, adding almost an extra third of space to its Watford facilities.

The new space will house a new 3.2m Vutek LX3 UV hybrid, supplied by CMYUK, that will improve print quality and efficiency for the firm, as well as a new Zund G3 3.2m-wide cutting bed which joins the existing 2.2m-wide machine to allow for faster cutting and collating of wide-format roll and skin media. Rocket Graphics will now be able to offer white-print options up to five metres wide due to their existing Vutek GS5000r and 3.2m M-Tex Dye Sublimation printers.

"Both machines were critical in helping us to deliver and install wall graphics measuring more than more than 3000m in just ten days recently for golf’s Ryder Cup, for which both colour quality and speed were of the essence," says Antony Rider, sales director at Rocket Graphics.

It’s important that, as deadlines shorten and client expectations climb ever higher, we have the staff, mechanical resources and technology to respond proactively

A new office space also comes with the expansion to support the firm’s growing management team and five Mimaki printers, which were recently boosted with a faster UV LED-curing JV300 1600mm-wide machine. Part of this new area will be used for a range of functions including vehicle wrapping and collating or partly pre-building modular graphic framing systems and lightboxes before they are shipped worldwide.

Rider added: “It’s important that, as deadlines shorten and client expectations climb ever higher, we have the staff, mechanical resources and technology to respond proactively, and improve what we offer to both existing and new clients.”

Rocket Graphics offers wide-format printing as well as digital cutting, finishing and mounting and worldwide installation, employing just over 50 staff.
